comment Saving sprite sheet into separate images
I have slice sheets with way more than 100 slices. Can you provide a sample document with an issue? You can set the file format for each slice (or all at once) in the Save For Web window — they can be PNG, JPEG, etc.

comment Shapes and text in Photoshop will randomly resize a fraction
Can you hunt down the exact steps to reproduce? If you can, there's probably a reason. Things to check: Ruler units (should be pixels), Snap Vector Tools and Transforms to Pixel Grid (should be on), Align Edges (per layer setting, should probably be off).

Linked Smart Objects can also be used, if you have Photoshop CC.

comment Connecting dots on Illustrator
Looks like it was created in a 3D app to me. Possibly a sphere primitive with crumple effect applied. Much easier than drawing manually in Illustrator!

comment How can I make my Photoshop text appear like it does on the web?
Since answering this question, Adobe added “Mac” and “Mac LCD” options to Photoshop (plus equivalents on Windows) that use system font rendering. It’s often very close or identical to Safari now.

comment Can we estimate the total number of unique still images that are perceivable?
@ZachSaucier I wouldn’t say “answers it”, but “defines why it isn’t easy to answer”. I’m with Peter on this. It’s not really something that I think anyone here will be able to answer accurately.

comment Increase the number of Anchor points on a circle in Illustrator?
@joojaa If you want 5, other strategies can be used. I think @scott’s method is the best way to go for most cases where you need more anchor points.

comment Extract Assets with CUSTOM Size, Format and quality?
Maybe an action + Generator would do the trick? At least that way it can be automated. Can even include a history snapshot initially, then return to that state when done.

comment Export iOS Icon Sizes in Affinity Designer
I haven’t done any testing, but be careful this method doesn’t end up with bitmap scaled assets from the larger size. If it does, they will be worse quality than scaling as vectors/layer effects. You can’t just use slices in Affinity Designer? If I get time, I’ll set it up to test.
