comment How to visualize combinations of data for a gene discovery application?
"Isn't data-visualisation almost always going to involve brainstorming though" -- Yes. To me, it doesn't become "on-topic" because it's data. If I asked how to design my exiting content into a web site it would be brainstorming and off-topic.

comment How to make PNG-quality animations in GIF format?
Are you certain they are gifs? You can animate PNGs via jQuery or javascript.

comment Change color for a complex logo without using Pen Tool?
CS5 (or older) Live Trace = Image Trace in CS6 (or newer) -- Without Tracing, Illustrator is not the correct tool to alter the colors of a PNG file. Use Photoshop. I'd also hazard a guess that tracing that isn't going to yield excellent results.

comment How to have a “live preview” when changing colors in Illustrator?
I'm fairly certain there's no way to get around the "let go" aspect.

comment How to have a “live preview” when changing colors in Illustrator?
Okay, you do have to let go of the mouse for the color to update. There's no way around that.

comment Is there an easier way to distress graphics in illustrator?
The "Clip" and "Invert" options are on an as-needed basis. Those depend upon the artwork and the mask being used. Sometimes they are needed, sometimes not.
