comment Reduce 30MB image to less than 50KB without significant loss
Tom, what did you make the original file in? A graphics program or some sort of math application? You need to create it in something that can handle vectors and save it as something like an .eps file. Then bring that .eps file into InDesign to add all of the text labels / legends. Right now its all raster which is why its enormous.

comment Adobe Cs4, Changing Background
You've already looked at step by step instructions and it confused you. Instead of asking for another one, that might also confuse you (and is off-topic) explain what part confused you and we can try to help. As it stands we don't even know what kind of background you're trying to remove.

comment Unpaid internships: are they worth it?
Not if you expect it to stay open. There's a reason it has two close votes. You can take offense or you can edit your question, I'm only trying to help you. It's your decision. As it stands all you've asked is "I'm looking for suggestions" which is not sufficient here. Here's our FAQ for more information: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/tour

comment Unpaid internships: are they worth it?
Did the duplicate answer your question? We have a couple other similar questions too you can search for and see if any of those other ones help. Edit your question stating a specific question that isn't answered in the other one. Describing their company or how they selected you isn't really a relevant question we can help you with.

comment Unpaid internships: are they worth it?
Have a look at that duplicate, if it doesn't answer your questions than you'll need to edit to be more specific (state why it doesn't answer your question). A big part of the decision IN MY OPINION needs to be financial, are they for-profit or charity, and will someone actually be mentoring you.

comment How do I make changes to an existing gradient in illustrator?
Uh what? Select the object with the gradient fill, open the gradient window? What's the issue?

comment Why does Photoshop outputs such huge PDFs?
Why it occurs is answered in the question you linked. How to fix it ... is barely on topic as its less about design and more about file size which is generally viewed as tech support by the community. If you have the entire Creative Cloud you'll want to make it in InDesign not Photoshop.

comment design on apple.com — how to transition from one photo (color) to another?
This answer is pretty good, just to add to it. The key is also finding images with empty space at the top / bottom. Roads, grass, sky, ocean, etc... Things that are predominately one color.

comment Can anybody think of a name for this weird business
Naming a company has nothing to do with graphic design. Branding CAN have something to do with graphic design, if we were talking about logo or color schemes for example... we are not. If you read our graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/tour you'll see this site is about precise Questions with precise Answers. Brainstorming names for your business is outside of that scope. I'd suggest joining a Facebook or G+ group for surfers and asking them, you'll get a much better response that way from your target market.

comment How to stop pathfinder in illustrator cc from automatically editing / rounding shapes
There's no reason I'm aware of for that to occur. If the original shape is merged the O should be going more into the B and D. Something else is going on that's unable to be determined from the info you've provided. Have you tried Unite instead? It's probably the better command in this usage anyways - though the results should be identical.
