An independent graphic designer and instructor in InDesign, Photoshop and Dreamweaver after tiring of working for other people. I'm also a software tester for various companies and "Tier 0" tech support for friends, family, various associates and lots of clients...

comment When holding shift + scaling a shape layer = doesn't constrain a perfect shape.
That's likely. At any rate, you can always work numerically using the object's properties, and scrub to enlarge/reduce. I tend to use properties more than WYSIWIG scaling, so perhaps I'm a bit biased. :)

comment Why are circles used to draw a logo?
If you're interested in this kind of stuff, I highly recommend Mario Livio's book "The Golden Ratio," which 'splodes myths (he covers many of the bogus phi examples), gives fascinating history, and shows the ubiquity of phi in nature. And he does it with restraint, never getting too mathematical for a prototypical "intelligent reader."

comment Saving ARGB 32 Bits BPM in Photoshop
To be fair, it's not exactly spelled out in the UI, and you would have a hard time finding it in the Help docs, I suspect, although the information is probably in there somewhere.

comment Recommended Body Font Size for Print Magazine?
Open Sans, which you mentioned, has such a massive x-height that it's quite legible at 8 point (much more so than, say, Helvetica or Myriad). It requires a healthy dose of leading at any size, so it would require as much room as, say, Myriad at 9 pt. It's also not that comfortable for long text in print.

Good on pointing out that the font used makes a big difference to both the point size and leading required for readability.
