comment How do I put a photograph inside the letters of a word (like Zero Dark Thirty)?
Command-click definitely works, but results in a bitmap selection, making future edits a little harder and lossless scaling impossible, which is why I've kept the example above as vector shapes... which may not matter, depending on the application.

And make sure Global Light is the same in the destination document, or the layer styles might look a little strange.

comment How to reset layer style properties in layer styles window in Photoshop?
Those actually sound like the defaults in Photoshop. I'd recommend setting up your own how you'd like. Scott's post shows a screenshot with the "Make Default" button. Set things up how you'd like, and click that.

comment How can I make a screenshot look like a photograph taken of a real surface?
100 screens? Set up a tripod and a way to easily flip through the images, and fly through the job. Just because the technique is analogue doesn't mean it's slow or can't be reproduced for many images.

If you need a photo on a concept device, you could take a photo, then corner pin the result. I definitely see your point though — in a situation like that I'd probably just do it all digitally.

comment How to create a shape, in a form of two basic shapes partially substracted?
Amazing answer! GIFs! In addition: “Merge Shape Components” under the Path operations popup menu (the one with Combine Shapes etc) might be of use.

comment Photoshop - Multiple layer styles of the same type
No probs. Unfortunately all the methods will require multiple layers or groups.

comment Photoshop: How to use a non-white background as the basis for semitransparent layers in PNG8 export?
It's also possible to save a PNG24 from Photoshop (24bit RGB with 8bit alpha) and use ImageAlpha to convert that to PNG8 with 8bit alpha. pngmini.com
