comment How to reduce the size of a (chinese) .ttf font file?
Instead of trying to modify an existing font (almost always a bad idea, unless you're the font author), I would just avoid using webfonts with Chinese. Instead, use standard Chinese system fonts that are already installed on most computers: kendraschaefer.com/2012/06/… en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_CJK_fonts#Ming

comment How to reduce the size of a (chinese) .ttf font file?
@DA01: It's fairly normal. They're all around 7~12MB, at least. You can't store 20,000+ (in some extreme cases up to 200,000) hinted glyphs without exceeding 6MB. Here are some other common Chinese fonts that you can use as comparisons. Most are between 20K to 40K characters. This is one of the major drawbacks to ideogram-based languages (multi-byte characters, way too many glyphs, large font sizes, no standard ordering...).

comment What design trend led to movie trailers displaying the title at the top of the screen?
@Ryan: TV networks do use similar on-screen graphics to brand their channels. Likewise, news stations often follow very similar formats (especially for things like sports). Many channels also use similar on-screen animated promos in the lower left corner of the screen to promote upcoming programs. And movie trailers/posters have long followed a standard format. However, the title/hashtag + release date thing isn't nearly as standardized to the same extent as the other things I've mentioned seeing as the vast majority of trailers don't have them.

This isn't a standard commercial style. The hashtags/title and release date aren't part of the trailer. They're just thrown in by some uploaders to make use of the letterboxing space because theatrical releases are presented in a CinemaScope (2.35:1) aspect ratio while YouTube displays all videos in 16:9. But most official trailers don't have them, and especially if the video isn't hosted on YouTube (e.g. go to the Apple trailers or the official website for the films).

comment How to cut off overlapping outlines in Illustrator
Make sure the outline of the snowboard includes the bleed, otherwise you're just gonna end up redrawing part of what you're trying to remove for purely aesthetic reasons.

See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_gamut and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_space to understand why changing color profiles can change the colors of an image.

comment Do I want to convert or just tag with the CMYK profile?
@spiderplant0: You can't tag an RGB image with a CMYK color profile because RGB has 3 channels while CMYK has 4. Therefore, some form of color conversion needs to take place. You can assign a different RGB profile to an RGB image without color conversion because it's still going to be 3 channels at whatever bit-depth the image is. Image viewers will simply display different colors for each RGB tuple.
