comment What do you take on a hike as a landscape photographer?
+1 for tripod -- one of the few absolute requirements IMO for landscapes.

comment How to reduce size of a jpeg image in Photoshop?
To achieve a 15x reduction in file size, you're going to be losing a lot of detail -- I'd expect an unreasonable amount. Of course, it depends on the specific image how well the JPEG routines can work -- since it's not just based on pixel dimensions.

comment How can I get to 400mm+ for wildlife photography on a budget of around £1000 with a Canon DSLR?
You can get the 100-400mm L Canon lens second hand for ~£1000. If there's any outlets of "London Camera Exchange" near you, check them out (it is a national chain). I've heard good things about this lens, but haven't saved up to use it myself yet.

comment How to remove timestamp text from photos?
Contact the photographer and ask about licensing the images to you? Is removing watermarks from someone elses photos something we want to encourage? Would it be something we'd be happy people do to our own work?

comment How do I return to Camera RAW window after opening an image?
Hmm... I have looked at Lightroom before but couldn't see anywhere that it really said what it does Photoshop doesn't (and after spending £1200+ on CS5.5 Web, my other half would go mad if I bought another computer program for my 'silly little photos'). Maybe I'll give the trial ago, thanks for the tip.

comment Which telephoto lens should I get for Nikon D3000 to take close-ups?
+1 to Paul - you really don't find many telephoto lenses starting below 70. 70-200 or 70-300 are quite common, and you can find budget (but still decent) lenses for around $250. Personally I have a Tamron, which I find good if a little slow.

comment How do I return to Camera RAW window after opening an image?
I've just looked at the Adobe Bridge program, though, which seems to allow more for the sort of workflow I want (it has previews/thumbnails of each image, and an option to open in camera raw) -- so I think I'll use that. As you say, there's not a great many uses for opening something in photoshop as a smart object, when you can't really make any changes to it in that state.

comment How do I return to Camera RAW window after opening an image?
my use case is basically wanting to have every photo open in camera raw so I can flick through them, then jumping in and out of photoshop to either just export as pngs or do something like content aware fill, and then wanting to go back to the list of photos in camera raw.

comment How do I return to Camera RAW window after opening an image?
+1 thank you. This isn't quite what I want, but it's sort of a workaround. I tend to use Photoshop just because it seems so much more responsive that Canon's own software (maybe Canon's isn't multi-threaded, or 64bit...)

comment Which program is good for modifying pictures?
what's your budget? I find Photoshop does pretty much everything I could want, from the RAW conversion to image manipulation (removing unwanted elements) to strange effects.
