comment What's the difference between opentype vs. truetype
Add the very important benefit that OpenType fonts are completely platform-agnostic. Before OpenType, we'd run into endless problems with cross-platform incompatibilities, usually at the worst possible time. In my own work, if an font isn't OpenType I either a) don't use it at all, or b) outline the text before it goes to prepress.

comment Beginner Web Designer
First off, full marks for recognizing that knowing how to use a design tool does not make you a designer. That instantly puts you in an enlightened minority. That said, Farray is correct; there are already good answers to this question. The one he cites is great. See also graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/2167/…, which will help.

At the bottom of the dialog, there is a dropdown to select the alpha channel setting. Change it from None to Unmatted.

comment Extract individual layers from a PSD without much effort
If you expand the question a bit, with more information about how these files are put together, you'll have more chance of getting the exact answer you need.

@lawndartcatcher I could never get my Wacom pen to work properly with those wax stencils, but yeah, the ink was awesome.

Right on, Horatio. Getting the same fonts is by far the best solution to this issue.

Q2ID is the only game in town worth mentioning. I consider it pretty cheap, actually, considering what it does. It rocks.

comment How do you say “Layer” in Chinese? As in photoshop layer
@FlaviusFrantz If you do a lot of print work, you should definitely get familiar with Acrobat's ink management and prepress features. They can be life savers.

@baudot "Safety First" is a good motto when stuff is going to press. Especially if it's a long job in a print shop far, far away. :)
