comment What are the alternatives to Photoshop? Is Gimp a good option?
+1 For pixelmator. -1 for GIMP, because I find GIMP hard to use. There is a very high threshold to really understand and master GIMP:

comment Should I choose the AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D or AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G?
I have bought the 35mm mentioned here, but still kept my 18-55mm kit lens. I use them in different situation and there is no problem with overlapping. However when I leave home, I rarely do take both of them with. Thus I agree with @mattdm about the second.

comment Do differences in color saturation across Nikon and Canon pictures matter?
@Nir I understand. However I was giving this information to Rebecca Jones, since the original question was about comparing Canon and Nikon.

Nikon has similar functionality. Only the name differs.

comment What kind of backdrop works best for a home studio setup?
I have also tried DIY with fabric. It was cheap, but it was hard to sew them together seamless. When using it is hard to keep the fabric without any wrinkles. The background is not a big issue, but the fabric on the floor tends to have a lot of wrinkles. So I ended up buying a paper background from my nearest photography shop. Therefore I would go for the real stuff directly, instead of trying DIY.

comment What is the limiting factor in lens construction when it comes to f-stop values?
Thanks! I was thinking about editing the article. Adding the reference and a quote with the relevant parts from the Wikipedia article. This would be added as a new paragraph. What do you think?

In the Wikipedia article about f-stop (f-number) it is mentioned how big the size of the pupil of your lens can be. Found in the "Notation" section.

comment What system should I use for photo management and sharing over a LAN?
I agree that the photo station has very slow indexing. Therefore I do not use it. But this could be turned of if you are going to use Gallery or anything other than PhotoStation.
