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 Should I get poster printing for higher resolution than 5400 x 3600 for 36“ x 24”?
I've modified the question to bring it more in line with site guidelines.

comment Powerpoint-like presentations with InDesign?
For ease of use, I'd suggest Interactive PDF unless you need elaborate animations right away. There's less involved in creating a PDF, so it's the simpler way to go.

comment How do I horizontally distribute text with equal spacing?
It requires Full Justify (the extreme right icon). Left Justify would have no effect.

comment Adobe Photoshop - How do you arithmetically add two images?
Intensity could mean highlights, contrast, shadows, or gamma depending on what you're trying to achieve.

comment Does this poster convey femininity and multiculturalism?
Another suggestion would be to make the subhead quite a bit smaller, perhaps half the current size, to give more contrast. It will help the visual impact.

comment Adobe Photoshop - How do you arithmetically add two images?
Um, no. The question is "how do you arithmetically add two images". Intensity could have a variety of meanings in this context, but since the OP is a Stack Overflow and SU user, he's probably a developer. I'm willing to bet he means exactly what the question says.

comment Adobe Photoshop - How do you arithmetically add two images?
Multiply is a multiplication operation, not addition. When image values are added, the image becomes lighter. Multiply always results in a darker image unless the layer is pure white or pure black.

The rest, as they say, is left as an exercise for the reader... (Calculations or Apply Image rock for creating masks.)

comment Adobe Photoshop - How do you arithmetically add two images?
@joojaa I've never done that (ha! I wish...). It was a coincidence that I'd written that linked article just last week. Frequency separation retouching is the only technique I've come across that explicitly requires Linear Light, so it was fresh in my mind.

comment Adobe Photoshop - How do you arithmetically add two images?
@joojaa, the only clean add operation is linear dodge. Linear light does add, but also subtracts, which is why it's grouped with "Overlay". You can see an important use of linear light blending here: creativepro.com/article/…

comment Prefered format(s) for data efficency in full rendered quality. (assumed raster)
This question appears to be off-topic because it isn't about design. It would be better asked on SuperUser or perhaps SO.

comment how to put 4 page layout to each other in indesign
I think it was a bit hasty to mark this as a duplicate. The original question was about pages side-by-side, this is about 2 up, 2 down. The answer would be quite different.

comment How do I do these certain things in Adobe InDesign CS5.5?
Nah. Don't ever blame anything (or anyone, for that matter) for your own situation, no matter how blameworthy it is. Blame says it's bigger than you are. It's an excuse. When you make excuses, you stop trying, and that is the one thing that guarantees you won't win.

Define the terminology. 99% of so-called "ADHD" is "went past misunderstood words." No fooling.

comment How to ensure high print quality / fidelity when sending artwork to a print house?
Add an image of your artwork to your question. There are many possible reasons, and seeing what you're submitting would let us give you a useful answer, rather than speculating.

comment Inserting page causes master to center\resize
If you can provide a link to the template and/or part of your book, I'll take a look at it. It does sound like the template has a hidden problem that you're surfacing by adding headers and footers. Indicate in your question which version of ID you're using.

comment Is there no such thing as OCR-B font in bold?
It would be readable, I'm sure, but it was simpler to make one readable font. Technology wasn't as sophisticated at the time OCR-B was invented.

comment When should we prefer rounded corner rectangle over square corner rectangle?
The problem is that the question is non-specific. There are so many use cases, so many possibilities that might favor one over the other, that it's impossible to give an definitive answer.

comment Where can I find a package firm that does the same as Moo does, but for packaging?
Be a bit more specific as to the type of packaging you are asking about. There are many companies with international reach in the industry, but the answer would depend entirely on the nature of the packaging and product.
