comment How to remove the color fills from this drawing and transfrom lines to B&W vector
I'd just redraw it in Illustrator using the raster image as a guide.

comment .AI vectors and text rendering wrong when PDF exported from InDesign
What are the "compression" settings? What are the dimensions of the file? I mean are you exporting a half inch image to PDF? I never use any of those canned Adobe job options. I use 2 settings - PDF/X-1a and a Basic web/Print proof setting that is slightly better than Adobe's "Smallest" option. Can you explain why you need a "High Quality" PDF?? In my experience a proofing PDF, a press-ready PDFx file, or an interactive PDF are all that's ever needed.

Add the link, then remove it when you're done.

comment Should spacing between containers be consistent?
I'm also in the it depends camp. -- Option 1 if you want separation between left and right content, option 2 if you want content to be seen also as a whole.

comment How to convert guides to objects in Illustrator
Sorry @user61355 I see no guides anywhere in that file.... and unfortunately you are really not describing what you want to do "unable to do clipping mask" is really ambiguous and impossible to understand in context. Slow down. Realize no one here is sitting at your desk with you. We have no clue what it is you are trying to do and why it isn't working. Post exact steps you are taking. You simply aren't providing any useful information.....

comment Importing illustration into photoshop shows pixels
How are you pasting it? As a Smart Object, Shape Layer, Pixels????? A smart object should be crisp and clear. If it's not... standard troubleshooting - trash prefs restart, etc.. Also realize if you are reducing a great deal then those subtle gaps in the logo are going to plug up. Reduce the logo in Illustrator, then copy paste closer to teh size needed. That's some fine detail that is almost always going to get lost on a big reduction. You may need to alter the logo for the size needed.

comment How to make a text fit in a perfect square shape in Photoshop (CC)?
This is a time where you need to treat the text as art, not type. I mean you aren't going to use the same calculations for a 2-letter word, a 5-letter word, and 2 4-letter words. What works for "up" certainly is NOT going to work for "right".

comment How to handle web design hosting?
First: It's highly unlikely you'll insult anyone with your questions. -- then see here: freelancing.stackexchange.com/questions/2022/… In some cases you host on your own server until the client pays for their own hosting.

comment Print effect similar to Tom Haugomat
I agree with @joojaa just simple art brushes on strokes would do it.

In order to Release Guides you must select the guide you want released first. -- just like you would select a path.

comment Adobe InDesign: Need inline graphic to extend outside of text frame
To be frank, I never use inline graphic because they are so restrictive. Anchors graphics offer the same thing without the restrictions.

comment Adobe InDesign: Need inline graphic to extend outside of text frame
@Friedman You can set the text wrap to be top/bottom so it essentially acts just like an inline object without being restricted to the text frame. With anchored object you must use a text wrap if you want any kind of interaction with text. Text will freely float over graphics if the graphic has no wrap applied to it.

comment Adobe InDesign - Courier Not Fixed Width
a) That doesn't look like Courier to me, fixed width or otherwise and B) the "fi" is a ligature... turn off ligatures.

comment Justifying single letters in Illustrator
For things like this, it's often easier to expand text objects and treat them as art.

comment Arrange one object specifically behind another object?
@MrRoundtree Direct Selection while holding the Option/Alt key often works better (this is actually the "Group Selection Tool" -- it's there in the tool bar... but I've never actually picked it from the tool bar. Option/Alt works better :) ) If you are working within a group The Selection Tool won't help, which is why I mentioned the Direct Selection Tool -- and alternatively you could always enter isolation mode. Much depends upon current construction of objects.

comment Can I save photoshop images as a vector?
Photoshop EPS files are not vector EPS files. They are raster EPS files with possibly some embedded vector data. See here: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/7726/…

comment Can I save photoshop images as a vector?
The short answer is you can't use Photoshop. Photoshop does not now, and never has created real vector files. It merely creates raster files with embedded vector data. There is a difference.
