comment What are my rights as a press photographer?
@Caleb it wasn't my intention to have this answer be un-accepted. I'd like either new answers or this answer could be edited to have some references.

comment What are my rights as a press photographer?
@MichaelT that is a fascinating website. Maybe some of these sources could be mentioned in an answer.

Not every reader will know that Ken is the same as Rockwell.

comment What are my rights as a press photographer?
I'm sorry but -1 because there is no source, or link to some actual case. With law being generally somewhat complicated, these statements need to be backed up. I don't disagree with your points but since I could make an equally good case for the exact opposite I know that I want more sources to be convinced.

comment How do I lower ISO in an intentionally dark photo and maintain contrast?
Did you try with a normal fill flash (turned way down in power) aimed at the ceiling? I'm guessing any lighting would be very complicated as you want to avoid illuminating the background more than now. That leaves using brighter Christmas lights or getting a more expensive camera with less noise at this ISO.

comment Retina Display-Can anyone suggest how to literally make an image “retina display”?
I voted to close. Please clarify what you are asking. If you are asking about Retina Displays (as answered by a_henderson) then this is off-topic and would belong on StackOverflow or some other site.

comment Create a huge collage of photos
In Lightroom, you could also create a "book" with a single page and a grid of 2300 photos. Then auto-fill the book with your images, and they will be placed automatically. I think this is more or less random but you can change it afterwards.

comment Why taking pictures on night time results to have a black color in bottom part [ nikon d3100 and nikon 300mm ]?
Is this with flash? What are the settings? (Mode P, A, S, M?; ISO, shutter speed, aperture)

comment How would I blur something out of a photo?
@clabacchio, it really doesn't depend on the amount, the math is straight forward. However, discretesation will cause problems, and possibly more so if the blur is large. In practise, I've just tried to reconstruct the first image and couldn't do so in GIMP in 5 minutes.

comment How would I blur something out of a photo?
The Gaussian blur can definitely be recovered. It won't be pretty but to obscure license plates this way is not safe. Here's an example where something similar was done. With license plates it is even easier.

comment How should I set the Canon T2i for low-light?
Not helpful, as motion blur from people will outweigh.

comment Is it possible to trigger a Canon 600 EX-RT with a Fuji's on-camera flash?
I've had great success with a pair of wireless third party links. In my case the Yongnuo.

comment Working on JPEG saved from RAW is this the same as working on RAW ?
@damnedtruths, No, just full size. exiv2 -ep DSC_0656.NEF from here gives full sized image but at 970 kB. A quick search shows that a Fine-Quality JPEG would be 3MB. I suspect that this corresponds to a basic.

answered the issue that was raised in the comment. Unfortunate tone with the intent to confuse.
