Illustrator has an "Unembed" feature that will extract a source image in its original resolution as either a PSD or Tiff. "Unembed" appears in the control panel when the image is selected, or from the Links pallet flyout menu. You can then batch convert the images to PNG if you like.

I don't use any extra plugins to export .pngs in Illustrator. I've found that using a single large artboard and creating named slices work well to export multiple .pngs. Simply create the slices you want and then use File > Save for Web and either leave All slices selected or choose the slices you want. I then optimise the exported files for the best ...

There is more than 1 right program for the job. If Photoshop works for you, then use it. Is there something you think you're missing by using Photoshop and not something else? A lot of people do like Sketch because of how well it works with for creating UI Designs and exporting assets. The biggest upside to using Sketch or Illustrator would be creating ...

you can use this famous extension made for Illustrator. Layer Exporter for Illustrator PS: I recommend you to use a more appropriate tool to make UI. I suggest you Sketch App or keep using Photoshop. Exporting assets from illustrator is a bit harder. With Sketch you can export your assets easily and you can work with vectors and symbols.

I think what you want is a website builder tool like Webflow or Divshot. It brings the best of both worlds: design flexibility of Photoshop and the HTML/CSS result will be rendered in browser exactly as same as the way you intended when designing it (because basically you are creating inside a browser). There are several options such as Webflow ...

I am using Adobe Illustrator CC. You can use the shortcut Alt+shift+ctrl+K or Alt+shift+cmd+K in case of MAC for keyboard shortcuts and Make sure it has the default shortcut keys. Hope this resolves the case.

If you're using windows, increase font size to 125% or more in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display. Log off and log in again. InDesign's interface will have large fonts.

I don't "design" in any application. I design on paper with a pen/pencil. I will then use Illustrator to create cleaner wireframes for presentations. I then move to using Foundation directly when starting the visual build stage. I dislike Bootstrap for the very reasons you point out -- you have to remove too much to start with a clean slate. By using a ...

HTML is itself quite slow That's debatable. I'd say production-ready presentation layer code takes longer to create than a quick sketch in Illustrator, but you don't necessarily need production-ready code to design in HTML, either. There really is no alternative between static mock-up tools like Illustrator and Photoshop and actual markup. There are ...

The reality is that most "user friendly" tools you are gonna find are too limited to live in the jungle of modern webapp craft. You cannot drag N drop your way to an asset-rich and use-case finished product. So the solution is to DiY it up using an accurate [shadow]DOM: Chrome Inspector, often called DevTools https://developer.chrome.com/devtools. It has ...

To create the best possible design experience, design in the browser itself. And not just one browser - all of them across all devices. There is no better way to determine how something will look or function than actually testing it in that browser. By doing your design and development in the browser itself, you're doing this throughout the entire process. ...

That's a great question, the chicken and the egg problem - how to design web site that can be easily and properly coded without following templates and having everything look like Google Design. I think the best you can do is follow a set on standard practices - 12 column grid, default form elements without additional styling, non-aliased live text, no ...

Naty's answer is close but since you're looking for the "correct distortion of a cylinder", you should use an actual cylinder. Illustrator has very limited (and sometimes buggy) 3D tools available, but this is a case where it has just what you need. In short, you should 3D extrude a circle and map the text around the cylinder that is created. To do this: ...

I'll open by saying that this is something that you should do on photoshop, but if you insist on illustrator here is how it goes: Create the type, separated into 3 objects - top, middle and bottom: Go to the top group, create outlines, make it a compound path (object>compound path>make) and give it a 3d rotate effect like in the image (the 20 degrees is ...

For points in Photoshop to match points for iOS and OS X native development, you’ll need the document’s DPI to be: For a 1× document (non-Retina), use 72DPI. For a 2× document (Retina), use 144DPI. For a 3× document (Retina HD), use 216DPI. Document DPI typically doesn’t matter (it’s pixel dimensions that matter), except when talking about points. Points ...

As @Bennett McElwee also points out, the checkmark is something we're getting more and more used to in our interfaces. Also the asteriks is used to indicate something that's not saved. We might combine the two into one button that changes state depending on the state of the document that it refers to: (icons adapted from ...
