comment Are there any Android App or Apple iOS Apps that can process camera RAW?
"processing jpeg could actually damage the image"? How so? I think you mean if you overwrite the original one. RAW files give more latitude for post-processing, but editing JPEG doesn't mean you'll lose your original picture, just don't overwrite it.

revised In Lightroom how do I determine what collections an image is in?
Transformed the question into a statement (the OP says it fixed his problem, and I tested this solution myself).

comment How has the price of a roll of film developed over the last few decades?
Interesting answer, but incomplete. You'd have to account for inflation here.

comment How do you use Snapshots feature in Adobe Lightroom?
I use it to keep both a b&w and a color version. I guess virtual copies would work for that too.

comment If shooting in RAW and processing, why still care about WB?
From my experience this is correct, BUT I would assume that in most cases (and especially for amateurs like me, not professionals) that going with Auto will allow to get something close enough and not a crazy high/low WB value that will lead to exposure issues mentioned. After several 100k shots on DSLRs, I'm confident with going for Auto.

comment Is it possible to record private comments in LR5?
You can remove the comments as you export. That would seem to solve your problem (keep your comments, but not have the clients see them).

comment What to look for in a wide angle lens?
24mm isn't really wide. I suggest the Tokina 12-24mm, although it's close to $400 so not cheap. For your portrait upgrade, I had the same issue and went for the Tokina 50-135mm 2.8, but it doesn't seem to be produced anymore :/.

comment How can I get rid of a black dot in a picture?
FYI, these kinds of dots are usually dust particles on your lens and/or on your sensor (if you own an interchangeable lens camera). I've had the same problem as you many times, and the best solution to take care of them is to avoid them in the first place: carry a piece of soft cloth (like for washing glasses) and clean off every lens before and after you use them. You can also use the cleaning feature of your DSLR to wash the sensor, if it has such a feature.

comment Style with dim background, warmer tones and subject being almost the only light-emitter?
Are you asking how to achieve this?
