Programmer most of the time and photographer most of the time. In a final analysis, I don't know what I'm more: programmer and photographer. Anyway, I do both for the others. This means that I'm a professional, no? Hummm...

comment what kind of qualities can be found among photo taken by winners
...and too subjective. While I certainly understand the poster, I think that isn't appropriate for this site.

"this error" - Which error? 'Video recording stopped'? What camera? At what resolution are you recording?

comment How many keywords are possible in Lightroom without a performance penalty?
@EndreGrünerOfstad: Good question. :) Tried to answer here, I know what to write (there are some points to consider in order to know how to do it/what Lr settings to choose) but here the space simply doesn't help me. Also, IMHO it is a pity to get lost this question in comments. If isn't so hard for you ask a new question with the text above and I will gladly answer you :)

comment How many keywords are possible in Lightroom without a performance penalty?
Sure. In fact any number depends on the concrete hardware and the what means 'acceptable performance' for each user. That's why I tried to give some general guidance/rules to a general question. The actual answer only the one who asked can give.

Please note that he didn't ask if the program has a hard-coded upper limit. He asked till where is possible to go up "without experiencing lack in performance"

comment Photoshop plugin to make part of photo colors pop?
He stress on "easy to use". I really don't think that splitting on channels, doing "mathematical manipulations" and re-combining the channels means 'easy to use'.

The question can be interpreted as time related (as you say, in few months the answers can be irrelevant). Also you don't give the specs of your Mac.

comment Is a JPEG image uncompressed to bitmap prior to displaying it on the screen
I didn't say that exists a program which displays a JPEG without decoding it to a bitmap. I said that there are programs which edit JPEGs in such a way - for ex. crop, rotate in 90 degrees (which are quite common edits on the image itself :) ) and metadata manipulation. For algorithm see at is.gd/1Yw8aw - for an extensive discussion see here: newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?t=24984

Not entirely correct. It depends on the nature of the program and the editing action if JPEG needs to be converted to a bitmap. See my answer for details.
