I would not continue trying to learn how to slice up a PSD for HTML. This practice is outdated and you're only going to be hurting yourself down the road. In regards to "current standards" people usually code in an IDE. One thing you have to understand with slicing is if you have a responsive website you're going to spend a ton of time trying to cut a ...

Most likely not the answer you want to hear..... If you really want precision in the line art you have to do it manually. I've not seen any auto-trace feature anywhere get good, clean, precise line drawings from a color photograph. Yes, you can try and simplify the photo, remove color, use the Find Edges filter in Photoshop, etc. But the end results are ...

Even if I use RGB Colors in inDesign and print the document, I will still get the right colors on the printout Nope. There are 2 primary reasons as to why there is no guarantee that your chosen RGB colors will print the way you want them to. You can't reproduce all of the CMYK colors in RGB space Converting RGB to CMYK isn't an exact process and ...

You could change all of the black to transparency as is answered here Or a possible alternative since you are programming (depending on what you are programming of course) could be to program the behavior that the screen blend mode enforces; From Wikipedia; With Screen blend mode the values of the pixels in the two layers are inverted, multiplied, and ...

You want to use the Direct Selection Tool, it is the one pictured below. You can then select the individual Anchor Point that you wish to move: Then move it!

Well sure. Record action, where you right-click a linked smart object and select Update all modified content. Go to File > Scripts > Scripts events manager... and: Set Photoshop event to Open document Select the action you made earlier click add ...and now the action runs and updates all linked smart objects when a document is opened. Note that ...

It would be slightly simpler with Layer mask, but I prefer using Clipping mask if the edge of two layers meet. Key points of the example images below: The person layer is put into Smart object and duplicated. This way you can just edit the smart object contents once and both images update. The first person layer is put in a Clipping mask with the ...

Simply add a Color Overlay layer style to a black and white photo. Set the overlay to Multiply and reduce the opacity until you are happy. In this case a blue-grey color is used for the overlay.

I don't know why your Properties options don't have the radius section. I think Emily is on the right track, in stating that your "shape" may in fact just be a layer mask on a filled layer. My Properties option box has a separate "Shape" section in it (see below). I would just create an actual shape and scrap what you have there with that mask, but if ...

Changing the aspect ratio doesn't alter the image, it only tells Photoshop how to interpret the image's pixels. (Note how the ruler in your "Unedited" and "Edited" images shows the same pixel dimensions). You need to alter the image, stretching the pixels horizontally, to achieve the look you want.

I do this quite often and the biggest tip that I can offer you is to always convert the screen image to a Smart Object before you transform it. I say this because it will allow you to open up that smart object and make any changes that you might need to make in the future to the screen image and not have to re-transform the screen. In the image below, you ...

Re-enabling grid - I've been doing that for the past two months occasionally but nothing would have happened but now it's magically gone, some kind of a visual bug it seems.

After working elsewhere and when you come back to work on this layer, make sure 'shape tool' is selected, and you may have what you want in the top-bar. I hope this helps. :)

What is the PSD to HTML best practices with HTML5? There isn't one. Designing in Photoshop is not considered a best practice by much of the industry. When teams design in Photoshop, they tend to not be designing with HTML--which is ultimately what the site needs to be built in. As such, many argue (as do I) that your design should start in HTML. You ...

There is no one approach. Each game is different. Just like most technical solutions the look and feel of the game follows a normal design workflow. It could look as follows: Preliminary planing phase Concept generation and definition phase Asset creation phase Integration phase Though there are numerous variations just like in any field that deals with ...

Best I can say: You are not as experienced in certain tools. That is fine: you were upfront about it, and there will be a learning curve. The best advice I can give is to ask the more experienced designer for help in concrete, single tasks. Make it clear that you want to achieve one clearly defined task, and ask how he would do that one single thing. Even ...

That person is definitely trying to help; they may also be looking for a promotion; but why look a gift horse in the mouth? They're trying to help you. For me, optimising workflow is pretty much: learn, practice, learn, practice - constantly. There's no point at which you can know everything; there's always more to learn. My advice is, continuously show ...

The easiest way would be to create a temporary layer with a fill, which will travel with the icon layer to the sprite sheet, where, after it has served it's purpose, can be deleted. New (temporary) layer in the 48 x 48 px document (Layer menu > New > Layer…) Fill the layer (Edit menu > Fill… > Black, or whatever). Send this layer to back. In the Layers ...

Of course they don't align: You will have to calculate how many subdivisions the Grid should have to match the Pixel Grid.

No, the main role of a web designer is to design web sites. After all, that's likely why they were given the title of 'web designer'. That doesn't mean they can't handle other design tasks, of course.
