comment I wonder if I can get >116 simple linear shapes to use them as a Alphabet?
There are 26 letters in the English alphabet along with the numerals 0-9. If you flip each of these on the vertical and/or horizontal axis, you have a base set of 144. Some of them are symmetrical on one or both axes and some will resemble others, but just on this basis alone, I would say your simple answer is "yes."

comment What is the name of hobby grade equipment to create photos where the background can be easily removed?
I have been in pro studios. Paper, cardboard, and lots of tape are professional grade tools

Not sure the math community can help further. You pretty much covered it: 116 shapes does not require a lot of components. However, the key feature of writing is data extraction, not ease of writing so the real challenge (before getting into how one gets a new system adopted) is error correction and recognition/discrimination.

comment How can I create an action that hides or shows layers by a specific name in Photoshop?
activeDocument.artLayers[i].visible = true; you can reference by ("name") or index (1). For the OP's use, one needs to iterate through the whole list (for (i=0;i < docRef.artLayers.length ;i++)) and search for the string inside the layer .name

I have never done this, but what you are doing is something akin to "Sinusoidal Projection" used in cartography. See for example christopherstevens.cc/blog/interrupted-sinusoidal-projections

comment Best sans serif webfont that display well on Windows and Mac
It is important to understand that Retina displays have muddied the waters in discussions of this sort. A Mac with a Retina display may be rendering at twice the "set resolution." In computer gaming this is very similar to full scene anti-aliasing. The details are not that relevant except to say that web fonts may be said to look better on a 2500 pixel wide screen pretending to be a 1980 pixel wide screen. Completely understandable and defensible until you generalize and transmit the information in a form that looks like misinformation tailored to non-technical users.

comment Why is it that this color gradient is so much more attractive than others?
I agree with scott and I will go so far as to answer "Why do they look good?" with "Who says they look good?". But that is subjective. My objective comment is: I guarantee you that you are evaluating the colors within the context of the whole screen that includes the light green window border. This color alone will prejudice you against certain color choices within the viewport.

Always use the right tool for the job!

+2: 1 for the illustrations and clear information, +1 for the ms-paint arrows. So inform, much pro.

comment Photoshop - How to reduce the file size in KB by reducing resolution
One confusion for people new to this is that software often automagically resamples (adds/removes pixels) when they edit the dpi value. When they change 100dpi to 300dpi, they fail to notice the pixel dimensions tripling.

comment While copying text, why more than just the highlighted text is copied?
I don't have a reason, but I do know that Adobe uses its own clipboard (or extends the clipboard in some manner) and that Adobe products don't honor the other copy/cut/paste system keys aka shift+insert; shift+delete; ctrl+insert

comment InDesign XML import — am I missing something?
It does look like the tabs outside the xml delimiters are being inserted. Maybe also try: duplicate the xml file and remove all tabs. Also the heads are missing.

Is this art 100% vector? No textures or placed files, and just the single opacity applied?

comment Photoshop - How to reduce the file size in KB by reducing resolution
The key portion of the answer for the OP is the first sentence, ignoring the definition of resolution. From a file size perspective, DPI is stored in probably somewhere between 2 and 4 bytes and changing the DPI value doesn't alter the number of bytes used. An RGB pixel is a minimum of 3 bytes per pixel. So removing even one pixel reduces file size. Then compression, then profit.

comment How to create transparent 1 bit background as in the sample?
I think your sample is probably png-8, but with either 2-colors, 1 being the matte; or 1 solid color field with the pattern as an alpha channel. I don't think Photoshop supports png-8 with alpha (at least, not "save" or "save for web"). For ideas regarding textures, cover a piece of glass with black ink and then dab a garbage bag on it, place this on some clean white paper. Photograph it and then convert to 1 bit bitmap. Alternatively, google images of plaster or ink and even "brush sets" of the same. The reason you can't tell it is pixel art is the lack of color contrast.
