comment Can I use old filters from SLR film cameras on newer DSLR cameras?
Of course, older filters may result in some interesting side effects as a result. Could be fun just for that reason. :)

comment How do I create emphasis with a single color in a B&W image?
As an aside, folks, he didn't ask what the effect was, he asked how to get it. The originally selected "duplicate" question didn't answer that.

comment How do I create emphasis with a single color in a B&W image?
There are additional descriptions of how to do this for other photo editing tools, just click on the selective_color tag to find them.

comment Does a photographer take pictures or make pictures?
The term "making a photo" isn't new, Ansel Adams coined the term decades ago and even had a book in 1935 called "Making a Photograph" that was widely distributed. Rather than assuming elitism is behind it, you might consider that it's trying to tell you something about how to think about the subject that you're photographing.

comment What is a “pseudo mannequin”?
Hard to tell, but in the sample shot there appears to be a wire frame across the back. Perhaps it's a wireframe mannequin, but not being sure, I can't really supply it as an answer. I don't think I've ever heard that term before...

comment What is the difference between levels, curves and contrast settings in post processing?
@chuqui - I have to admit that I'm failing to see the duplication.

comment Can anyone identify the silver rangefinder-style camera in this advertisement?
Nicely found, I was beginning to think it was a fake prop.

comment How can I recreate the Instagram Filter “Slumber”?
I think the Instagram filter is adding a slight haze to the image, creating a softness to the look. Reminds be a bit of the glamor glow in Nik's Color Efex.

comment EyeFi doesn't support CF cards. Are there any alternatives that do?
@mattdm - I've updated to the latest information. Looks like it's now coming to a CF card near you... :)

comment Is the build-quality of the Canon 60D as good as the 40D?
@Stuart - as mentioned by Matt: What you need to do is merge your accounts - the guest one and your new one. To do that, go here: photo.stackexchange.com/help/merging-accounts

comment Pros and cons of cheap studio strobes vs. hotshoe/speedlight flash for portraits?
Modeling light is handy for shadow and highlight determination visually, but it's not make or break there because the intensity levels are not always high enough to get a really good sense of how sharp or diffuse those shadows will be depending on ambient light.

comment How can I upload photos rejected as corrupted to Blurb Books?
Are the file sizes of the rejected images much larger than the ones that succeeded?

comment Should my collection of older Pentax lenses be a deciding factor in my first DSLR purchase?
Not sure where you heard that Pentax cameras aren't too great, comparatively, but I might suggest that you ignore their advice in the future because it's almost a polar opposite at the same price point. The list of cameras you have there are quite old, current Pentax cameras are amongst the best going.

comment Do photographers see ambiguity in the color of the blue/black (gold/white) dress?
Sorry Matt, protected this to avoid the flood off the Internet treating the site as a discussion forum.

comment What should I consider when using DSLRs in cold weather?
@Robin - I suggest looking at the posting date... However, rating is service recommendation by the manufacturer. Check your manual.

comment Should I buy a compact, SLR, or DSLR camera?
@AndréDaniel - Please don't use comments to answer a question. Use the answer functionality for it.

comment Performance of large libraries
Generally, as mentioned, we prefer to avoid compound questions here. I think both of your questions are answered though, but if there is still something you'd like known beyond that, please ask a new question. As an aside, 15K images isn't really that large a library, mine exceeds 50K and I know others that have way more than I do.

comment What publicly-accessible high-elevation photography-locations exist in New York City?
@Itai - No, no tripods that I saw. There are some ledges that you can probably use for stability. Also, depending on the camera, you might be able to use a Gorilla pod. Failing all that, the classic "string tripod" will work.

comment What publicly-accessible high-elevation photography-locations exist in New York City?
@vclaw - I took a dSLR (Pentax K-5) up there without a problem. What they're trying to avoid is commercial photography. Besides, there are plenty of "professional" cameras that don't look it...
