comment Is there any service where you can check your designed logo against trademarked logos?
Depends on your luck - perhaps it only scores a direct hit on truly stolen images, even if they are cropped, resized and placed in a bigger image we have had startlingly good results before now.

comment How can I graphically represent width, height and depth dimensions?
Eyes definitely roll - I am not having any of that Flash nonsense on a web-page of my own devising. I am not having any WebGL effort that won't work on the customers screens. Week 1 of any Comp Sci 3D Graphics module and you have a box on screen with a few lines of code. We have had this internet thing since Al Gore invented it and I seem to be the only person wanting to draw a basic 3D in 2D box. This would be easier on the ZX81.

I put a lot of time into trying to draw a simple box in 3D on a webpage - 2D picture of 3D was all I needed, no interaction, convoluted lighting model or anything involved. Yet, much to my irritation it seems that none of the '3d on the web' toolkits actually work, they might do if you have the right browser/operating system but they don't work on mine! What I don't understand is that you would not be able to have a computer/console game in 2D, it has to be 3D, yet, with the internets it seems we collectively do not care about 3D - if we did it would have worked properly ages ago. I despair!

I think that processing.js is exactly what I need - the box primitive should do the job just fine.

comment What's the easiest way to convert a .jpg image with white background into .png with alpha channel?
Far from moot - some habits are good and you don't want to get stuck with the wrong techniques even if there are lots of ways to 'skin a cat'. Tidy edges to images is something I learned with 'blue-screen' television production - creating a 'matte' on moving images even if they were wearing blue, had fine hair and stepped out of the lighting. I am a stickler for those principles and cannot 'just chop stuff out'. An adjustable matte is what works for me, but different strokes. Using Imagemagick and not even looking at stuff opens new creative opportunities too, particularly with websites.

If you look behind the back of the monitor you can see them. They can also fall out the bottom and go all over the desk. Happens all the time. Anyway... It is about using a non-destructive workflow. For internet projects you can have a complex action - removing white space borders, applying a mask, resizing and applying a 'sharpen' filter to get some of the resize blur back is a typical batch task. This can go badly wrong for some images or the complete set needs adjusting. Having a non-destructive 'hide' instead of a destructive 'delete' helps with any adjustments even if saved out to PNG.
