comment One-way sync from Linux to Flickr
Found script source at sourceforge.net/p/flickrsync/code/ci/master/tree/…, but I don't know perl.

comment One-way sync from Linux to Flickr
Just downloaded it and it is in fact an exe == Windows. Tried to run it with mono runtime and wine with no success, so sorry for the earlier comment.

comment One-way sync from Linux to Flickr
Haven't tried it, but take a look at sourceforge.net/projects/flickrsync It's written in perl, so it may run on Linux. The top descriptions don't say one way or the other.

comment Does the brand of the micro SD adapter matter?
Just a guess, but with all the smartphones and tablets using micro SD cards, they're probably just selling more of them with more competition on price.

Appears to be exactly what I need. I will have a look at it asap and probably accept this answer. Thanks.

comment What does the expression “V+F” (or “V&F”) mean on a photography web site?
Great photos. If you made them a little larger, they'd make great screen wallpaper too (meant as a compliment).

comment How do I compose an image for use as a browser background or wallpaper on a widescreen monitor?
I appreciate that. However, composition of the image is a separate question that might not even fit in this forum. I wear reading glasses and I'm careful about using appropriate backgrounds to make things easier to read. The idea of the lion facing the menu is cool though.

comment Compositing portrait adult/child
Wouldn't this be better titled "Composing ..." rather than"Compositing ..."? I understand compositing as putting two or more pictures together in post-processing.

comment How do I choose a title for a photograph?
If you happen to use Linux, KPhotoAlbum is great for tagging lots of pictures efficiently and then finding them later.

comment I just saw my children in a photograph on the wall of a chain restaurant. What rights do I have to protect their image?
Given what other posters say the US laws are (IANAL), we shouldn't be "afraid" to take pictures of people in public, but, as situations like this highlight, it's important to be sensitive to the people (especially children) whom we photograph, especially if the pictures will later be displayed in public places.

comment If I swallowed my SD Card would it be readable when it emerged?
I would not risk swallowing an SD card. Aside from choking, there's a possibility that it could become lodged in your intestinal tract or even perforate it. Lodging would necessitate surgery to remove it. A perforation could cause internal bleeding or death from sepsis. A microSD would be a lot safer (just because it's so much smaller) and wrapping it securely in plastic wrap might also make it less sharp and a bit less likely to get stuck. If you made a plastic/rubber "vitamin pill" to insert it into, that might make it a lot safer and disguise it a bit too.

comment Which laptop has the best display for photographic processing?
I have heard that Apple Retina displays are very good with color accuracy, but I have not used one.

comment Canon 60D with SanDisk 32GB microSDHC Class 10 = Card Error
I don't do macs, so I don't know the details. What you want is a long format (not quick format), preferably with no other options. If you have another card that works in your camera, see if it's fat32, or whatever exfat is and then use that to format the card in question. MBR is master boot record which "theoretically" shouldn't bother anything, but why open the door to problems if you don't have to.

comment Canon 60D with SanDisk 32GB microSDHC Class 10 = Card Error
Why would you put any mbr on a memory card for a camera? That's only used if you want to boot from the card. Fast format usually just sets everything as erased, but leaves it there. Long format gets rid of old content. But neither of these should affect the camera's ability to read your card.
