comment Solution for making flash animation without grainy look?
How are you exporting your work? I'm not super accustomed to Flash but coming from After Effects and wanting to export gifs I usually go through Photoshop and its "Save for Web and Devices" feature. That lets me fine tune the controls to my liking in order to compress the gif file more/less.

comment Icon/Glyph Suggestions to represent “Manufacturer Information”
What kind of products are being sold? I could see some kind of tools icon, possibly placed over something representing the information part, like an "i" or instructional booklet. Some examples of the direction I'm talking about: 1, 2, 3, 4.

comment Icon/Glyph Suggestions to represent “Manufacturer Information”
Hi and thanks for your contribution! OP never said anything about using bootstrap. Also, if all he needs is a single icon then it's better to take them from the source, which in this case is Font Awesome. I think your answer could be even better if you link to the specific icon your suggesting from that icon set.

comment Saving all visible content over and over with ascending names in Photoshop
Hi and welcome to GDSE! In order to better help you I think you'll need to clarify a few things. Am I understanding you correctly if I say that what you want to do is to save a snapshot of your Photoshop composition as it is at the time and then continue working as usual? If so, could you not simply create an Action that saves your composition as a png?

Exactly. Record the above with an Illustrator action and you're good to go.

comment What is the name of this element?
Yeah, I don't think it has any actual name. Though I admit it's often commonly used to highlight text, especially blockquotes, in web articles or e-mails. Maybe something like an "indentation bar"?

comment color shift when duplicating layers in photoshop
It certainly sounds like a transparency or blending mode problem. One thing you might not have already thought of: is there any inherent transparency in the image itself? You could try merging your image layer with a solid color background and then duplicating that to see if that does the trick.

comment How create such amazingly smooth grain with gradient like this?
A slightly more elegant way to do this is to use gradients. That's the way to do it in Illustrator as well. Mind if I edit and add to your answer a bit?

comment What kind of files, graphics, and information would be in an “identity starter kit?”
Great advice. Just wanted to chime in and add a couple of resources for the budding identity designer that I'm finding helpful. Graham Smith's site is great. Not only does he do great logo/identity design work but he blogs, inspires and otherwise helps out the design community as well. Brand New is another fantastic website for identity inspiration. You should be able to pick up you some ideas about what a great identity does and does not usually entail from there.

comment Are there any go-to resources for how to grab users or readers attention?
I guess what it can be narrowed down to is "how can I structure my design/layout to bring attention to certain aspects of it?" But that's still an extremely broad question. In order to be a bit more helpful though, here's a decent read on structuring your design to communicate more clearly. It's far from perfect but will help introduce a few core concepts of good design. Beyond that I'd suggest looking up lists of good design books to get you started on learning graphic design. There are a few such questions on this site.

comment Which fonts don't come with Windows 8 that would come with a new MAC?
Just to help out. There are a bunch of decent to quite good fonts available for free these days. Check out fontsquirrel.com for a good selection. Another good service if you have the money is typekit.com though it's also included in the Adobe Creative Cloud-service if you're subscribed to that. Both these options will give you a good selection of quality newer fonts. Unfortunately the classic, good ones are more expensive to come by. Though a decent amount is included with Adobe's software.

comment How can I beat the browser when it comes to reducing image size?
Not sure I understand your question. How is the browser beating Gimp? In perceived quality of the image (when resized)? In that case, how are you actually resizing the image? Would you mind posting some examples?
