I've loved photography my entire life. These days I use a Canon DSLR and an iPhone, plus Lightroom for editing. I'm bitrot on Flickr and Instagram.

comment What's a good iPhone application to view large images (5000px+)?
p.s. Note that 1040x1536px is the size of iOS 7's new parallax wallpapers on the iPhone 5. Clearly then 1536px is as big as Apple thinks you need to go.

That came as a surprise to me too but I tested it and fmark is correct. A 5616x3744px 5.04MB image transferred to my iPhone via iTunes then brought back either via Dropbox (at full size) or e-mail (full-size) has become 2304x1536px 1.22MB. A 1040x1536px 600KB wallpaper image transferred the same way is still the same dimensions but now 403KB. So it looks like (on an iPhone 5 running iOS 7) iTunes shrinks to a max size of 1536px and applies compression.

comment How to make a panorama from pictures with distortion
Have you tried Microsoft ICE? I find it much better than other panorama tools I've used and it's simple to use too (and free!). research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/ice

comment Is there any plugin for Lightroom that enables face recognition?
As the questioner says they're considering Aperture it means they're using a Mac, so this won't be a solution for them.

comment How do I pan an image in Lightroom while using the adjustment brush?
:) It's actually a pretty common shortcut - it works in Photoshop and a few other programs too.

comment Is there a way to add captions to Lightroom photos based on title and/or description?
And the question starts by saying those aren't the solutions the questioner is looking for.

I'm not aware of a free solution but I guess anyone who can afford Lightroom can afford 3€.

comment How to correct photos which were overexposed at the edges only?
You can easily compensate for that by using the Exposure slider though. Use Recovery first to get the blown highlights to where you want them, then tweak up the Exposure to correct any loss in other areas. Recovery remains the best tool for correcting the kind of damage you described in your question. You did say yourself that "it may be hopeless" - unless there's a better answer out there, unaccepting this one seems harsh!

comment What filter should I buy if I wanted to do 5 min shutter speed in daylight?
@longneck Exactly as they would be because the dock is stationary whilst the water and clouds are moving.

comment Can I save the JPEG preview image that's generated in-camera when I shoot in RAW-only mode?
Nice to know about I suppose, but dcraw -e wins every time on simplicity.
