comment How can I automatically create an image “key” with group photo silhouettes tagged with people's names?
Don't know the answer, but I hope someone does. It would be a useful tool. I'd bet good money that most intelligence agencies have this. The first step would be to identify all the people and a number of apps have tools for that. KPhotoAlbum on Linux recently added automatic face recognition and tagging. The problem is that systems like this probably don't save the coordinates where each match occurred, so there would be no direct way of knowing where to graphically tag/annotate the image.

comment Is there a tool to compare image EXIF data across folders, so I can eliminate duplicates?
If you don't find a Windows solution, then the link @inkista provided may still be your best solution.You could install virtualbox and put a Linux distro in it and give it access to your photos. Then, you can use all those Linux tools without having to completely switch to Linux. It's not super difficult to do, but more details would be way off topic for this community.

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.
