comment Is it possible to export a *.png with RGBA8 in Photoshop?
Thanks for the info! Both files are perfectly fine PNGs (according to pngfix-32; no errors or warnings whatsoever). Closer examination shows that their IDATs (duh ;}) and some pixel values (may be caused by color management) differ. Besides that, the first has additional 5 chunks defined, that the second file is missing: bKGD, cHRM, gAMA and 2 text. The first of them declares the background color, so my guess is it could be misinterpreted by some half-baked PNG decoder. More could probably be said if we know some more details about the target app.

Could you provide a sample image from your generator? Judging by the message returned by your application, generator exports PNG 24 not PNG 32. It would also help to know specifically which generator do you use.

Could you provide us with the image? It's very hard to answer without “eyeballing” the specimen first…

comment Is there benefit to old-world, analog, customer appreciation?
About the Adobe… I think the lack of strong competition that could really “hit the sales” did the part of the trick ;}

comment Insert multiple glyphs at once
I have the impression that you're trying to “type” using the glyph panel. If so, you should instead try to find some suitable input method on an OS level (maybe custom keyboard layout). Could you please give some information about the OS you're using?

comment When/how to stop brainstorming new ideas and move on when there is no clear frontrunner?
Exactly :} Although not a CfH story, but still… A friend of mine ordered a business-card design. Because he wanted to have a choice, a designer send him a couple of different variants. For the next 2 weeks my friend tried to decide on one. When he finally did, he was exhausted by the process and in the end his choice was as good as any…

comment When/how to stop brainstorming new ideas and move on when there is no clear frontrunner?
Pretty well, actually. As to the second question, I always try to explain my reasoning, the same way as I did here. The thing is, you always need something to differentiate the choices—the said evaluation criteria—to be able to say “this is better than that”. If you can't do that, then you either lack some additional criterium or your choices are equivalent. Realizing it can save a lot of time…

comment How to size canvas and add and retain full image in GIMP?
@mikeLdub The resolution is your most probable culprit. It's not enough to say “my image is 8×11.5 in” in the case of raster image. You also have to say how many pixels fit in 1 inch.
