comment Photoshop Pen Tool: draw lines in a vector mask
@AlanGilbertson Which behaviours have changed? Seem very similar to me. Stroke is new. The way they appear in layers panel is new. Align Edges is new. Switching between solid/gradient/pattern is new. Everything else I think we could do in CS5. (I'm not complaining, just suggesting shapes were very powerful in CS5.)

comment With Photoshop, how to batch replace white background with transparent in the image
I'm glad I'm not the only one still doing this. Old school PS channel techniques FTW. It's worth noting that if the images were all similar, you could probably do a half decent job using an Action to batch them all.

comment MacBook retina Photoshop save for web
Also, remember it's a 24bit IPS display. I can't stress enough how much of a difference that makes for design work.

comment MacBook retina Photoshop save for web
I'd definitely recommend keeping the display at its native setting. This is called "Best for Retina Display" in System Preferences (I'm suggesting to not use the "Scaled" mode). "Then rather get the 15" with 1680x1050 hi-res glare model" — If you want the res and UI scale of 1680x1050, then that might be a better option. Maybe visit an Apple store and take a look?

comment Text hyphenation in iOS apps
If you can ensure a good line width (10-15 words average), then I think hyphenation detracts from the reading experience. Hyphenation is good for narrow columns, horrible everywhere else, in my opinion.

comment Mysterious line next to shape after saving for web in Illustrator
Smart Objects in Photoshop CS5 have similar antialiasing and dithering issues. Photoshop CS6 has some fixes when dealing with Smart Objects from Illustrator, but they're still not perfect. If you can, you'll be best pasting into Photoshop as a shape layer and colouring in PS.

comment Select background against trees / hair
In addition to the answers below, taking bracketed exposures would have given you lots more options. Even if the shot was handheld, doing a little blending might have been easier than compositing a new sky.
