comment Auto updating an image and its thumbnail version in a document
My first reaction was the "Update all occurrences" that you found. The only reason I could think that wouldn't work is if the two images ever need to differ but being a thumbnail and original that shouldn't be the case. There's no reason not to use that capability. Could you edit the "Answer" out of your question and post it as an actual Answer though so you can mark it correct for us please.

comment How to auto fill dates while doing a calendar?
There's probably a way to do it with scripting but otherwise the most efficient way will be to suck it up and type it. Illustrator has very minimal variables (found in Variable Panel) and you'd have to type each date into a spreadsheet and give each its own variable... being more work than just doing it directly.

comment Cant Change Font Face in CSS
Its hard to say without seeing more of what you're doing. Another issue could be some Browsers have a "View Everything as Helvetica" option you might have turned on.

comment How do I create a granite / stone effect using Photoshop?
@TroyWoo not really, that's the only way you're going to get close using Photoshop. Feel free to ask other questions if you get stuck along the way just be sure to show your work and some effort.

comment How to find a professional designer
As it stands I'm voting to close because I don't believe this is the correct website for this question. Instead you could edit the question to ask "What should I look for when hiring someone to design my logo?" And if that hasn't been answered would be a better question. Recommending businesses for you to hire is outside our scope though.

comment Is a poorly designed website better than no website for a commercial enterprise?
think you're missing my point. You only mention "client/user trust" in what you call dynamic websites as though its not relevant for static websites.

comment Is a poorly designed website better than no website for a commercial enterprise?
I have to disagree with you on the extent you put "User Trust" into only the second category. Branding creates trust. It's as important, sometimes more even, in your first category of "static websites" (which I'd usually refer to as a brochure site or informational site).

Interesting question, sorry it went unnoticed until now. First I've seen it and appears first others have seen it too.

comment What is the equivalent to Corel's “Collect for Output” in Illustrator?
@ShaikEmraan I already edited your question to something people might be willing to help you with. I'd suggest leaving it how it is.

@DA01 couldn't remember if I learned it in College or HS but that makes sense. My degree is in architecture haha

comment What is this design pattern called? “Continuation wave.”
I'm pretty sure I was taught in school it was a straight line then angle down then angle up past the horizontal then angle down to horizontal then continues. I don't know the name either though. I imagine it comes from torn paper.

comment Use of Pen Tool
I've edited your question to only be about the centering so its not overly broad. It would be helpful though if you could edit it further with a screenshot showing your issue centering anchor points and describing what you've tried.

comment Are there any go-to resources for how to grab users or readers attention?
Shoot on my old laptop I've got a few articles on this topic bookmarked. I'll boot it up when I get home and link em for you. Hope you stick around, would love to get answers from the neuro side of things. Eye movement studies are so interesting to me.

comment Efficient printing of custom trading card design?
Yeah enlarge the artboard and put 6 on a single board. Or as I said, if you have Adobe Creative Cloud subscription then you can use InDesign. Setup a Master Page with 6 placeholders then link the cards. Can even automate a lot of it in InDesign. Those are the main methods that come to my mind, someone else might have another solution for you.

Are you trying to figure out how to skew something in Sketch or are you trying to locate a template??

comment Efficient printing of custom trading card design?
Why can't you arrange 6 on a page? Or better yet if you have Adobe CC link the cards to a layout in InDesign. Sorry, I might be confused on what's challenging.
