comment What are some reasons to not display EXIF data when sharing photos online?
I wonder if you could add some numbers to support your "considerably lighter" assertion.

@Francesco, my apologies in that case.

@Francesco, I'm not sure how you propose copying the bulk of Thom Hogan's site into an answer. The entire value of this answer is "here is a good resource to look at". Did you even follow the link? Please downvote thoughtfully rather than reflexively.

comment How can I export TIFF images to JPEG with no adjustments, using Lightroom?
@Dan, for example in raw there is a default camera profile which among other things fiddles with the curves (or something like that -- I'm not near my computer to check).

comment How should I choose a flatbed scanner for scanning prints?
Thanks! I wonder if you could say in more detail what criteria led you to this scanner? That would future-proof this answer a little more. (In other words, what exactly did you do while "looking around"?)

comment Best auto-feed photo and/or negative scanner?
Indeed. The lifetime of bits is infinity if you move them to new media when appropriate. And common formats like JPEG and PNG will be readable as long as we have computers.

comment Does a filter exist to color-correct color negatives when copying them with a DSLR?
Lightroom 3. I haven't actually tried any of this yet; I want to make sure it's feasible before I buy a macro lens, etc. I think the problem people are having is not that it can't be done, but that with 2+ fewer stops of information in some channels, the quality is poor.
