comment Is it possible to paint a nearly identical copy of an old photo?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because about painting and not photography. I'd suggest signing up for the Arts and Crafts proposal in Area 51.

comment How can I make dark images stand out when displayed on a website with a dark background?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's not really a photography question.

comment Having focus and image issues with a Nikon D3100 and D3300
Camera settings you're currently using would be very useful, especially the mode setting (e.g. manual vs automatic).

comment What is “brightness value” in Lightroom?
Sony's software may not expose all EXIF fields. Use EXIF Tool for that, it is definitely not created by Lightroom.

comment What is “brightness value” in Lightroom?
@KartickVaddadi - Exposure value has a meaning, which isn't 'exposure' as you're using it. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exposure_value for some details.

Hey Alan, great answers, but if you could please leave off the signature that would be appreciated.

comment How do I update Lightroom metadata after using ExifTool without wiping my edits?
Have you tried removing the image from the catalog, making the change, and then re-adding it?

comment Why can't I get a pure white background, even using multiple light sources?
As James Snell suggested, if you want to get help, a view of the actual setup would make a significant difference. As it stands, despite what you may think, this is still a duplicate of the other question. That none of the answers solve it for you doesn't mean that it's not the same question and you have the option of offering a bounty to promote additional answers that solve your problem.

comment Can I use a plano convex cylindrical lens, instead of a fisheye, to shoot 360°x180° panos with my phone?
I've noticed that your responses are typically more discussion as opposed to answer. This site is a question/answer site, not a discussion forum, so we're generally looking for responses that directly answer the question posed by the user.

comment DIY fix for stuck mirror?
Quick way to confirm is to try live view, if supported.

comment Is the Pentax SMC DFA 100mm f/2.8 WR Macro compatibile with the Pentax K-r?
@Mark - The K-r isn't a full-frame camera... Worth knowing if he plans an upgrade to the forthcoming, and sadly too late for me, Pentax FF offering, but it's not a factor in compatibility with the K-r.

comment What program littered my photo directory with empty directories
Any reason you didn't ask this on Super User or Ask Different? It's not really a photography question.

comment As a professional photographer, how can one handle a wedding photographer being rude or demanding in a way that will compromise overall image quality?
I'm going to be more blunt. If it's a comment after this then it's getting deleted, period.

I've done a major comment sweep through the question and answers here. Please, folks, do not use comments to engage in a discussion over this topic, use chat for that if you feel the need.

Keep it courteous please.

comment How to meter for manual bounce flash?
The reflectiveness of the ceiling makes this unlikely to be accurate unless somewhere close to 100% of the light is reflected. Some amount of exposure compensation is likely to be necessary.

comment Do I need to buy anything more than just body and lenses?
Just a reminder, to a few users, before I get the inevitable meta question... Short answers as comments — please resist the urge.

comment Do images need special treatment for high-resolution (“retina”) displays vs regular displays?
I want to echo the chat sentiment, comments are not intended for discussion. I also don't think this answers the question really, which probably explains the volume of down voting...

comment Freeware/FOSS Image Editor for a beginner
Actually, no, the tools have been maturing in most cases and closing here can lead someone to the old question to answer. You have, however, hit upon the reason questions like this tend to get closed... Maintenance of the information. Software recs are usually off topic here anyways, but we had the info anyways.

I realize the question suggests more advanced users, but the options are really the same.
