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.

comment Align to pixel grid problem
The example file isn't remotely pixel snapped, so yes, I'm struggling to see what the OP is after.

Compound paths, yes. I've edited my answer to include compound path examples.

It doesn't really matter what kind of path it is, they all play by the same rules.

comment What DPI should be used for what situations?
Regarding Retina iPhones and Retina iPads (and probably Retina Macs): Apple defines one point as two pixels, so points do matter, but not in the way @JFW is probably asking. I agree with everything you've said. If you want to make your life easier, web and app PSDs should be 72PPI, but it mostly doesn't matter.

comment SVG Filter: Fisheye
A vector fisheye, that's being applied to the vector points, or a bitmap fisheye, that's being applied to bitmap images in your document? Or both?

comment RGB and CMYK: Why both?
Fair call, but I'm talking about a theoretical situation that ignores profiles and gamut (which is a moving target anyway)... a conversion between normalized RGB and normalized CMY. Your point is a good one though. Worth keeping in mind. (AKA the long answers on this page still don't do the topic justice!)

comment RGB and CMYK: Why both?
“RGB 256 colors of each shade” — because 8bit = a 0-255 range. Are you talking about what’s technically possible or what the human eye can see? I assure you that RGB 16 16 16 can represent 281,474,976,710,656 different colours (this is very basic programming theory).

comment Thin font output
I agree. Lots of thin typefaces simply can't be used at small sizes for screen design (or print design in some cases).
