comment How to incorporate gradient fill in embedded files in Illustrator?
Hmm.. it would appear to be a limitation of the embedded file. It's actually not rasterized, it's a rectangle with a circle clipping mask (when I set it up). I think this is actually one to ask over at the Adobe Forums -> forums.adobe.com/community/illustrator <- since it's far more tech support than actual design.

comment how do I fill a shape with other small objects and text in photoshop?
I'd wager there's a 90% chance this was done with Adobe Illustrator or some other vector-based application and not Photoshop.

comment How to incorporate gradient fill in embedded files in Illustrator?
What versions of Illustrator? Why embedding rather than copy/pasting? Your gradient is being rasterized (that's why there's a mask) you need to first determine why the gradient is not holding up.

comment Do interfaces really need to “look good”?
If you are going to state that the MacOS is "natively incompatible" you need to also state that Windows is "natively virus prone".

comment Do interfaces really need to “look good”?
In spite of the pruning of comments the moderators seem to feel is warranted. The misinformation in this question itself makes it a bit biased and steers answers away from honest and objective areas. -- My comments were removed.. oh but look at all the other similar ones.

What software are you using? FontLab? Fontographer? Glyph?

comment What is exactly a “Pixel”?
@DA01 My interpretation of the hardware differences is in pixel density not in pixel size. But yeah, it's probably more science than I'll get into :)

comment Animating in Photoshop with transparency
Simply remove it. It's only "default" if you set it to white in the New Document window.

comment sprite css not hovering correctly
Better suited for stackoverflow.com - would appear to be an issue with incorrect measurements of the icons. The tablet icon seems to be 40px wide, not 47. (it seems jsFiddle is broken in chrome for me.. odd, that's a first.)

Alpha refers to a mask in this instance. 8 bit.. black and white mask of the image.

comment Smooth faceting of beveled/embossed text in Adobe InDesign?
This is not something I'd do in Indesign. But have you tried using the "Smooth" Setting or "Chisel Hard" for the Technique? Or increasing the "Soften" value? Chisel hard seems like it would work.
