I'm an enthusiastic amateur or a semi-pro photographer, depending on mood and day of the week. :)

comment Why does my Adobe Lightroom temporarily pixelate photos after every change?
Can you give some details on the spec of your computer? It sounds like you might be running on and under-powered machine. If you leave it long enough after an edit (without zooming in) does it eventually go sharp again?

comment Is 2 megapixels enough for 4x6 prints?
As a p.s., also remember that clever print technology means that even at much lower dpi you can get some amazing prints. I've had prints made in the past at around 150dpi that were surpringly sharp.

comment What is the Orton Effect and how can I apply it to digital photographs?
I forgot one bit: the Overlay blend will often result in quite a dark image, so you may want to slightly over-expose your original shot (either in camera or in post-processing).

comment How do I append tags to photos with existing tags in Lightroom 3?
-1 as the problem described is incorrectly observed and doesn't occur. The question is redundant.

revised Can I create a Photoshop droplet to resize a batch of images, both portrait and landscape, to the same size?
Improved English, clarified title and improved the flow of the question (e.g. merged short paragraphs into longer ones)

comment How many blades does my lens' aperture diaphragm have when I get 12-pointed starbursts?
@Lazer Hi - any chance of accepting my answer to this question? I'd really appreciate it. :)

comment Windows-based tethered workflow and automation solution?
Yep, I reckoned since you were building a commercial tool, the cost of a Lightroom licence might be within budget. Don't forget there's also the fully-featured trial version if you want to try before you buy.

revised Can I import pictures into Lightroom and retain my existing folder structure?
Clarified title: the question is referring to folder structure, not filenames.

@Brian: I had the same thought: just submitted an edited title referring to folder structure rather than filenames.
