You can't get vector from a PDF with Photoshop. Photoshop rasterizes everything when you open a PDF. That is unless the PDF was created by Photoshop with Preserve Photoshop Editing Capabilities on. In my experience, those type of PDFs are rare. But it can happen. If you do have one of those PDFs, just opening it with Photoshop will show the layers... ...

If you have Illustrator just open the PDF page with gold circles and you will get perfectly crisp edges at any resolution.

In terms of evenly spacing elements in drawing software, I'd use the alignment tools and/or blend tool. Illustrator has both. My typical process is: draw single object clone/duplicate as many as I need position one at the beginning and one at the end select all then use the align tool

You're using a Brush that has transparency built into it. There's no way around that effect as a result without opening the .abr file and adjusting the opacity of the stroke which would defeat the purpose of using that brush to begin with. For example here is a Watercolor Brush on white background: If I remove the white background even though the brush ...

Another method to do this is to create "Layer Comps" and from scripts export each Layer Comp as a file. I'm sorry, I'm new here, so I do not know how to put in advanced formatting and images, so my answer may seem pretty empty.

You can use Blending Options > Drop Shadow and adjust the Blend Mode (set on Multiply by default), opacity, shadow color, contour etc. Another way could be to duplicate the layer, set it in Pin Light mode, and again play with opacity. If the edges are too hard, you can use a Gradient Overlay, Gaussian Blur or simply erase the edges with the Eraser (soft ...

Have you tried to redraw in illustrator? This is a very simply image, will not take more than 15 minutes to do. You can't just resize a image larger without quality loss. Also you can try to rasterize it: Select the image > Image trace > Sketched Art Result:

I think the only way to get the spinner (Image A) to spin at the center is make the spinner a square. You have the artboard a square but when you move the PNG, it does not move based on the artboard but on the center of the spinner. You will have to move one of the points to fit the edge of the artboard. For this, I made the right part fit to the bottom ...

I made something similar recently in Illustrator. To start out, I created a diagonal line, then copied and pasted it multiple times on my artboard. After I added the desired number of diagonal lines, I used the horizontal and vertical distribution and alignment buttons to evenly distribute and align the lines. For me they are visible by default in the top ...

You can create your own photoshop action that does this. Create a new action in the action panel, then open one image as an example, then crop and scale the image to the right size, then save the resulting cropped image as a png. Then stop recording your actions. You can then batch edit an entire folder (or custom selection) of images using that action. ...

You're right about the anti-alias. You get the halo effect (blurry pixels) in Photoshop when you don't work with clean whole pixels. Typography is usually a problem, because of the curves. Since I don't know how you will use the letter, I will try and suggest a couple of things. You can try and place a fill of the color behind the hole (known as the ...
