comment Create a sprite sheet with animated gifs and still images
That doesn't sound like a good idea. I'd rather keep the sprite sheet and gif separate... Or turning the gif into png sequence, put that in the sprite sheet and use css or javascript to animate it... Or perhaps consider a svg loading icon.

comment Turning Ads horizontal to Vertical
I don't know if it would be easy to convert horizontal text to vertical in flash, but what I do know is that manually or not, you're going to have hell of a time trying to get a single word to fit in that vertical banner, since it's super narrow. Point being that you're totally not going to be able to keep the original text size. If you're willing to resize the text, I believe it would have to be about as small as the text you wrote on the right side of the second image ....and even then, the word "believers" might not fit.

comment Is the use of a QR code worth the space it requires?
The only somewhat useful usage for qr codes that I've see. Is game dvd's that contain a qr code that leads to a trailer of the game. There has also been a text near it telling you to watch the trailer or something, so you know what's there. --- I was personally pretty fed up with qr codes as soon as they became a thing. The reason is exactly this. Everybody just wants to use them without any thought.

comment Multiple colors for different shapes under one layer (Vector) in Photoshop?
Only if it's in another layer. Or depending on how you're going to use it, you could clipping mask a color layer over the the existing circle.

comment Photoshop - How to apply gradient to only part of an image in photoshop
You need to separate him from the background. I'd use Pen tool and draw a path all around him and then right click the document and choose: Make vector mask. So that the edge doesn't look odd, you could then tweak the path with Direct select tool and possibly blur the edge later on, if it looks too sharp.

comment photoshop render fibers and export as transparent background png
Other methods aren't that difficult, but looking at that one answer below and the slight white glow present in the result, I'd suggest a simpler method: 1. Take brush tool 2. Edit > make brush preset 3. make sure you have black color selected and opacity is 100. You may want to resize the canvas or open a larger document. Brush somewhere in the document by clicking on once.

I know this question has been asked many times in here, but I couldn't find any of them.

comment How do I color a table to look neutral?
I'm assuming you mean how the color differences makes your eye focus on some cells more than others, right? Wouldn't the obvious choice be to tone down the color differences, so that nothing stands out too much or use a single color?

comment Image Opens as Layer 0 rather than Background
Just so you know... You could make that happen, but as Scott points out, it wouldn't make much sense. It would do more hurt than good, if every single transparent image would get it's background taken away.

Buy every person in the world the same exact display and hope for the best.

comment Auto-updating linked smart objects in files that were closed at the moment of the update
@ChrisZimnowski Yes. I am aware of this issue. To get rid of the error message, it would have to be at least partially scripted. Nothing too heavy. You could do it by making the action and everything the same, except you would also make a script with a single if statement and inside it doAction() function, which will trigger the action as long as the if statement conditions are met. Also in the above screenshot you'd choose script instead of action. This would be a good opportunity to try out scripting, if you haven't already, as it would be a super light script.

comment Indesign script to replace paragraph style
OP's quite often want one thing but actually need something else. When someone asks about automating a seemingly automatic function in a software, I'd rather figure out why, than to just blindly do as master says.

comment Indesign script to replace paragraph style
I didn't quite understand. How much more automatic can you get than the delete method? ...the delete method, that automatically replaces all occurences of one paragraph style with another...

comment Blob on path (precise), how did they do it?
You can create that png sprite sheet in pretty much any image editor and even in vector applications, that can export pngs. The png by itself is not an animation, so you hardly need after effects to do it.

comment Bleeding line looks weird in illustrator cc 2015
This is a bug in cc 2015. Top of the artboard is missing too. If you turn the pasteboard color to white, you can see it better.

@astralmaster Try to find reference pictures. Otherwise you are going to have hard time making it look realistic.

comment Create light with two layers of different levels Photoshop CC 2015
So you want to turn that into night time picture and make it look like car headlights are hitting the road? I'm not sure if I'm going to be ready to answer this question, cause it would be a long one. Well, maybe some key points could be explained...

comment Fix gap between path and shapes in Illustrator
Ok. Another quick and dirty fix. Duplicate the layer until the gaps disappear.

comment Can I use the Collections Groupings in Font Book within Illustrator?
@bcolmer this is part of the reason why a lot of third party developers, especially font manager developers offer plugins for indesign, illustrator and photoshop: Suitcase Fusion, FontExplorer, TypeDna. There are also some stand-alone extensions.
