comment How do I compose an image for use as a browser background or wallpaper on a widescreen monitor?
@Joe - I wrote you have to be aware of cropping when shooting and leave plenty of empty space, if starting from 16:9 is easier for you go for it, but you will still need to crop over a fifth of the image's height (as opposed to about half with a 4:3 image common in point&shoot cameras) so you still can't fill the frame. and I ignored the web browser part because that's a completely different discussion that's not on-topic for this site (toolbar size can vary, the browser doesn't have to be maximized, page may be viewed from a device with different screen size, etc.)

comment Auto-focusing problem on a Canon 500D with a EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS(standard kit lens)
Just be careful about how much you pay to have it fixed, you can pick up a used EFS 18-55 for next to nothing (more than 10 sold for less than $60 on eBay this month alone, most of those for around $40) there are so many people trying to sell their kit lens after getting a better lens the market is saturated

Hey, someone "designed" that color on the plain colored wall - unless you make your own paint.

comment If I have an 85mm lens for portraits, is a 50mm useful as well?
@dpollitt - I wanted to say that a 50mm on a crop sensor has the traditional role of a 85mm on a full frame, not that 50mm and 85mm are the same (and my point was that - on an APS-C 30ish+85 combination is much more versatile than a 50+85 combination because on a Canon APS-C you get the "magic" that made 50mm so popular at ~30mm)

+1 for "theory says one thing, but your budget might say something else"
