comment Why is Photoshop splitting my panorama in the wrong place?
Photoshop doesn't allow you to reorder images in a panorama. Try Hugin instead - an open source panorama generator: hugin.sourceforge.net

comment Grain of sand in view finder on Nikon D3100
Unless you work in a sand blasting workshop that is highly unlikely. Just take the lens off in a relatively dust free room and you will be fine. It's certainly a hell of a lot safer than fiddling with the viewfinder internals.

If you're seeing it in the viewfinder, it can still be on the main mirror. Have you looked at it?

comment Is there a benefit to using a FX body when using DX Lenses?
That's what I'm saying - wait until you can afford both

comment Is there a benefit to using a FX body when using DX Lenses?
It's either a case of going for a second hand body so you can upgrade a lens too, or just waiting and saving so you can get an FX lens along with the FX body.

comment How can I get perfect sharpness when shooting still art?
When you say 'aperture highest the lens offers' do you mean you're shooting wide open (ie a low f-number)?

comment What was done to this photo to get a surreal tone of pastel-like purples and blues?
Looks like a straightforward saturation boost to me. Perhaps a boost to the blue and purple channels in this particular shot.

See if they'll refund you instead and buy elsewhere?

Sounds like it might need a repair (or exchange if the vendor will do it).

comment How do you add lens profiles to Adobe Lightroom?
I have the 18-35 1.8 in Lightroom 5.5 (Camera Raw 8.5), but not in the Downloader. Weird. Is your version of Lightroom fully up-to-date?

What brand of camera are you using? Also, have you tried using the tools I linked to in any case?
