comment Utilities for comparing different JPEG compression engines?
This would probably be better if you moved your edit into your answer.

Use a different app entirely :-)

comment Horizontal artifacts in Lightroom after import
Have you tried with a different RAW converter? Whatever Sony supply, or DarkTable or something?

comment Stopping down in manual mode with automatic ISO?
DPReview's article on the 7D Mark II strongly implies you can do exposure compensation to Auto ISO in manual there as well: "In Manual mode, it provides a quick way to dial in exposure compensation when using auto-ISO"

comment MY canon D1200 doesn't take a picture in AF mode
The camera will take a photo if it's in AI Servo mode even without a confirmed focus lock (at least, the 550D will).

comment Why does a small change in focal length of two lenses make a $1000.00 difference in the price?
While this is mostly true (except the part that those lenses can shoot at 200mm!), it doesn't explain why the 24-70 is so much more expensive than the 28-70 - they've both got the same maximum focal length.

comment Uneven exposure with Sony a35 - one side of image much lighter than the other
Voting to close as unclear - without some example photos, we're just guessing here.

comment How do I take good portraits with a bridge camera and superzoom?
Take it to meta if you really think your behaviour is acceptable. But remember that you've got at least one experienced user and one moderator in this discussion saying it's not, another experienced user who deleted the link in your other answer and another answer deleted entirely.

comment How do I take good portraits with a bridge camera and superzoom?
Your deleted answer to this question in which you didn't disclose your affiliation, the unnecessary link in this question which added nothing to the answer (which you then re-added), and the fact you didn't declare your affiliation in this answer either. Every single answer you've posted has included a link to your site.

Please read How not to be a spammer. Given your previous behaviour on this site, you've lost the benefit of the doubt when it comes to links to your site.

comment CHDK on Canon Powershot S100: Which Video Bitrate to choose?
Although this would still probably be closed as "opinion based" there - what settings you choose depends on what you're going to do with it.

comment Senior picture 72 dpi vs 300 dpi
It's not quite a duplicate of that question, but the answer is the same - DPI for digital photos is meaningless, so your school shouldn't be specifying it as a criterion.

Everybody: keep it polite.

comment Utilities for comparing different JPEG compression engines?
"JPEG is one strictly described compression algorithm". So why does the GIMP give me "Optimize", "Smoothing", "Subsampling" and "DCT method"?

comment do mirrorless camera lenses have automatic diaphragms
If it's that, the answer is the DoF preview button which exists on most, of not all, DSLRs. Alternatively, it could be something else entirely, which is why I asked the question.

comment About AV mode in Canon DSLR
Or use manual mode with auto ISO. The only problem there is that you then lose the ability to do exposure compensation on most Canon SLRs.

comment About AV mode in Canon DSLR
If you're fixing aperture and ISO and not letting shutter speed vary appropriately, how do you expect to get a properly exposed shot?

As PNG is lossless, what are you aiming to do there?

What actual problem are you trying to solve?
