comment Are these photos ruined because of ISO?
Noise is mostly alright. However, in every second group shot, only one person is in focus. I probably would have increased the ISO even more, to allow for a smaller aperture.

comment Lossless export from Picasa?
To verify this, if you are on Linux you can use 'jpegtran -copy none -outfile out.jpg in.jpg' to remove all metadata (otherwise lossless). Diff the files again and see what comes up.

comment Why is my Canon 5DMIII draining batteries overnight?
I've had this several times on a Mk II. Can cause exactly what Bob described. There is nothing left in the batteries at all, the camera will not turn on. As to why the light doesn't keep flashing, that might be a limitation of the ML firmware. I would assume it's not how Canon programmed it to work.

comment Changing grid-color of Cropping tool of Lightroom
People have been asking for this for a long time, but there is still no official way (tv.adobe.com/watch/learn-lightroom-5/lightroom-5-features). As a workaround you could temporarily change the exposure.

comment Starting out professionally in families/kids/events photography in mostly natural setting vs studio
I second getting the 5DII (or maybe the 6D). The Mk III improves most importantly in ISO- and AF-Performance. ISO is already pretty good on the Mk II. Low light AF on the MkII is indeed a pain (only middle sensor useful for me if at all), but if you know you'll usually have plenty of light (or are good at manual focussing) it shouldn't be an issue. And yes the lens is more important so better put your money in that.

comment Can deleting files using Windows corrupt camera cards?
If it isn't too much work in your case, I would first try to access it from Linux which from my experience seems to have a more robust file access and might suffice to copy over the remaining data. If it doesn't use one of the recovery tools mentioned by the others. I like the Testdisk, which is free of charge, but not the easiest to use.

So that's why you put the 'ultimate'. Good to know, thanks!

@ElendilTheTall : Not necessarily. See here for a comparison of TIFF and PSD: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/12655/…

Also, as long as you stay in LR all is fine and you could even delete the TIFFs after sending them off, since LRs history allows you to easily restore it and export again. However if you do changes in Photoshop, you will not be able to save them in any other way than TIFF or PSD (right?). Assuming of course you want to stay non-destructive with the ability to go back at any point in time to make changes.
