Better plasma screenshots

Help me take better screenshots on my plasma. I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01, and probably my settings are bad. Screenshots are either too noisy (at high ISO ratings) or blurry (100 ISO). Exposure is often whack. I see great screenshots online, taken on big LCD or plasma. How do they do that? Thanks!

Looking for a specific, well known photo of Yorkshire

Looking for a photo/photographer I saw in a documentary a few years back. It was a black and white shot taken in the 1950's/60's and featured a typical small Yorkshire (or at least northern UK) village on a steep hillside at night. It was a long exposure and the glowing street and window lights illuminated the buildings and made for a very striking scene against the black sky and surrounding hills. [more inside]

Help me consolidate thousands of pictures

I have a bunch of directories of pictures across multiple disks. Many images are duplicated. Additionally, I had to use some disk recovery software to rescue other images and the filenames changed. At the moment, I can't guarantee that all of the filenames are unique. I'd like to weed out the duplicates and then ultimately consolidate everything into iPhoto. I'm talking close to 20,000 pictures. [more inside]
