comment Bootstrap buttons - text hard to read?
Hi there! I think the main issue here is not if they look to small for the OP alone, but if "Are there general principles for choosing font and its size inside buttons?". Could you for example add some more info to explain why they are fine in your opinion?

comment Why should I buy licensed software?
This question was closed because it appears to be off-topic. As DA01 mentions, this is really about ethics rather than graphic design. The simple answer would be: Because it is illegal to use a pirated version of any Adobe program. Regarding what the professional consequences of doing it are, I imagine the main one is that you won't be able to share the original assets if required, because you will be stating you created them in Gimp when in reality you are working on PSD files. I think this question can be reopened if re-focused to the technical issues related, rather than the ethical ones.

comment What are the basic rules of “flat design”?
Yes, they are now. But very subtle ones in the case of backgrounds, or blocky in the case of shadows...
