comment How can I easily preview my illustrator document on my iPad?
The drop box app can preview .ai files. It's just a rasterized preview, but as long as you don't zoom in, it should be fine.

comment >Indesign>Data Merge> AppleScripting a “Desktop” Indesign Server
There could be better ways, but off the top of my head: You could perhaps make a automator app that filters a specific mail ( from the mail client ), downloads the attachments to specified location, opens a indesign script. The script opens Indesign and triggers the datamerge functions. Then you could trigger that app via Calendar event(s) that open the automator app.

comment I would like to convert my image into a 'transparent mask' with shadows
Replace the text with the couch and you got exactly what you want. I didn't ask the question. You do the comparing. This is answer for another question, so it's not an exact answer to your question and certain things need to be the changed. Doesn't change the fact that it takes opaque image and makes it transparent.

Which is exactly what that answer is about.

comment How to set guides at exact positions / coordinates in Photoshop?
Not sure if these fit your use case, but just so you know, there are also 3rd party extensions like guideguide and griddify.

comment What does the interlaced option in Photoshop do?
@Jan-Philip Gehrcke Interlacing does increase the filesize a bit. What you should do is first go with personal preference or use case ( It isn't going to do much on print work ). Then check if interlacing adds too much to the file size and act accordingly. Jpeg progressive is way more efficient and doesn't really affect file size as much.

You could use the technique in this answer: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/29609/…

comment Match eraser settings to brush settings
Theoretically you could make a script that saves the brush preset and switches to either brush tool or eraser tool depending on which one was selected and then selects the brush preset that was created last.

comment Are there any online applications that are compatible with tablets?
I believe DeviantArt Muro has that support. Why anyone would want to use web application over some sort of desktop app, goes beyond my understanding.

comment Create foreground/background color pair presets to cycle through
The best option for you might be just making swatches and picking them with and without cmd as I mentioned earlier. Because photoshop doesn't have groups for swatches, you might wanna do something like: add white swatch between every set of 2 swatches, so it's easier to differentiate. The only difference to what you want is that you need two mouse clicks instead of one.

comment Create foreground/background color pair presets to cycle through
Only the three methods that I mentioned. Nothing else comes to mind. I mean I guess the closest to what you want would be an extension (which is pretty much script(s) with a panel gui), but you'd pretty much have to make that yourself, as I doubt something this specific exists as a script or as an extension.

@Scott No. No, my friend. Listen, let's not be hasty here. For you, I have something else in store. Better than candy. Think big. Iiit's a brand new Wacom Cintiq 27QHD with 10 year worth of pen nibs. The brand newness of the product can not be verified, nor the brand or the model. Joonas for president!

comment Create foreground/background color pair presets to cycle through
The best/least complicated option that comes to mind is making an Action for each set of colors, which you can then activate with the assigned shortcut keys. --- You could always make a script that toggles between swatches in sets of two, but I would just make swatches in the Swatches panel And pick them from there. Doesn't take too long. You can pick two colors, by first clicking the foreground color swatch and then with Cmd pressed, the background swatch.

comment How do I sharpen a bitmap image that has been enlarged from a small size? Is it even possible?
No amount of sharpening or any other automated process can make this image look good.
