This cursor indicates that you are in "copy" mode which for example: if you hold the combination of keys like you did (ctrl+alt, while using brush tool) over any layer you will automatically copy it and grab it while you can move it around holding keys and releasing to place the copy wherever you want. Hope that helps.

Do not make the photos that large, only if you expect the people to download them for free. As they are just a gallery try something like 1280px wide. In this case, in my opinion forget the 2X option. Edited. The max resolution I would use for a gallery is Full HD. In this case either 1980px wide or 1080 px height, whatever ocurrs first.

Enable the application frame (Window → Application Frame). With the application frame active your whole workspace is treated as one window that you can easily move/resize etc. From Illustrator Help / Workspace basics: The Application frame groups all the workspace elements in a single, integrated window that lets you treat the application as a single ...

The easiest way to tackle this is using the lasso tool to trace the text and do a 'content aware' fill (edit - fill - content aware). Then brush over ugly edges with the same color and you're mostly good to go.

Contacting your printer about required resolution might be a good idea. There's a good chance that you will not have to print this at 300 dpi (20m @300dpi would be a whopping 236,220 pixels!), but at something like 30 or even 15 dpi. They might also instruct you to deliver a file at 10% size, so effectively a 9 x 200 cm file.

I compiled a little tutorial for you. My Interface language is Polish, but I'll translate the commands to English version, so no worries! Using Pen Tool (hotkey: P), make a path around the object you wish to select. However, there are other other options of making selections, but this one is the most accurate, effective (and thus time-consuming), by far! ...

You will find plenty of graphics that look like that (maybe different color). In Illustrator you can open the file edit text and save it as whatever you need. Hope that helps. You could also you Photoshop to either paint over the ...

If you have a shape layer that you want to use as a mask for another layer you could just use a regular clipping mask like I describe [here]. A clipping mask is probably a better option but if you do want to use the shape as a vector mask you will need to copy the shapes path and use that as a mask. For example, I have an image and a shape layer: Use ...

To answer your main question, I'm assuming the problem with your path is that you havn't drawn with the correct shape modes. If you have multiple subpaths you need to select the correct shape mode for each subpath from the options bar (i.e. select Subtract Front Shape to create your "holes"). Your selection should then work as expected. Creating a ...

I'm not sure whether this should actually be just a comment, but the reason you're getting blurred, slightly jagged edges, is because you're using the line tool on a fairly low resolution image and are zoomed in. Try changing your zoom to 100% and see if the jaggedness remains. If you need more detail, then consider chaning the resolution of your image (...

What's the Key? As always, with any project, experimentation is the key to success. Play around with the tools at your disposal and see what fits the bill best. Making your images too large or too small obviously have their advantages/disadvantages, but in this instance you really do need a middle ground. Formats There are various picture formats around ...

This is a quick, easy way that I've found to remove a white background: 1) Use the Quick Selection Tool (w) and paint around the inside of the object that you wish to isolate from its background. You might need to go in and manually deselect some areas, by holding down ALT while you paint. 2) Click on Refine Edge at the top of your screen and adjust your ...

In Photoshop the easiest way is to make an action and then run a batch. First step is to change image size to desired and then change canvas size to 600. Illustrator don't allow to record an action with artboard resize but you can do it with macros but you would still need to open every file manually and then start the macro.

Rough fix: copy image, lighten copy, give the copy layer a mask, paint to blend nicely using a huge and soft brush.

Illustrator: outline type, create shape in angle, pathfinder, than clean up and save.

If I understand you correctly, what you want is a clipping mask. Place your texture on layer directly above your text layer in the layers panel Alt+Click the dividing line between the two layers. Your texture is now clipped to the text layer. You can move, edit, transform and do whatever you like to either layer without having to edit or reapply any ...
