comment How to distribute an equal amount of space between each object in Photoshop?
@John - Yes, that's what I was trying to ask. Is there an easier way to do this than to manually move each object x pixels from the edge of another? Very slow going if I have 10 items in a navigation and want to increase the spacing for each by 5px.

comment How to ensure scalability of logo design?
I'm basically agreeing with you, in an ideal world, all vector graphics would be created in programs dedicated to the purpose. I can see from your profile that you'll know exactly what all the differences in how Photoshop and Illustrator handle vector graphics are, but you have to understand that it's not always practical to have a 'purist' attitude to this kind of thing - if the OP has and knows Photoshop and has never touched illustrator before, it makes sense to use Photoshop (if possible), if not, go for Illustrator.

comment How to ensure scalability of logo design?
@Scott - 25 Years experience means nothing and is probably more of a hinderance as it sounds as though you are not up to date and current with software. Photoshop CS6 is an extremely capable bit of software not just for raster graphics. It's true that Illustrator is better suited for vector graphic production as that's it's exclusive purpose, but if Photoshop is what one is familiar with and owns, it makes ZERO sense to buy and learn Illustrator if they can get by with Photoshop.

comment “Black text has been set up so it prints as 4 colours, rather than just black” - what?
@Scott - Thanks Scott, that fixed it. The question now is... After reading this question (graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/668/…), what if I wanted my text to be a 'rich' black but not blurred? Would there be anything I could do in that case?

The first part worked. However, isn't the second paragraph for Illustrator? That or I can't find a pathfinder panel in Photoshop? :)

comment Time requirement for Photoshop Vs Illustrator for mobile app
That was quite the comment-trail! However @DanielHanly - If these graphics are to be used on common devices, as the question suggests, it comes down to whichever program the user is most proficient in or can pickup the fastest. There is nothing wrong with working at a larger scale than you'll ever need with raster graphics if that is convenient/fastest and all you will need. So I question why from a workflow point of view it is better to use Illustrator? I quite like Fireworks when layouts are concerned.

comment Is the print process different for business cards oriented in landscape or portrait layouts?
Very true. Just thought I'd ask here for a quicker, impartial answer since I've come across this with a number of printers. :) Thanks.

comment Small-run or DIY printing solutions for packaging design?
A little off-topic: At-home laser cutters do exist, though the one I have fills a garage. :)
