comment How to use Skala preview with a usb cable?
It is possible to use Skala Preview via USB, but only on iOS devices where Personal Hotspot can be turned on: bjango.com/help/skalapreview/personalhotspot

comment Turn off antialiasing for artwork and ignore type?
@Senjuban That will be because the stroke is centred and the size is an odd width — A 1 pixel stroke that’s centred on a pixel boundary will be half in the pixels either side, causing it to be wider, lighter and blurry. As you've said, you can use an inside (or outside) stroke to fix it. I'll add some more info to my answer.

comment How can I easily preview my illustrator document on my iPad?
Yes, Skala Preview can send AI and PDF files, but just the first artboard or page. However, you can reorder the artboards in Illustrator to send any artboard.

@joojaa Photoshop’s 32bit mode is linear, which might be handy for this experiment.

comment Export Sketch dashboard to PNG…use as smart object in Photoshop
You can’t just Update All Modified Content? Can you upload some example files? Seemed to update ok over here.

comment Creating layers with different sizes from existing PNGS and imported into a PSD
Generator’s a great suggestion for the exporting, but I don’t think it can help with the importing.

comment How to create vector graphics In Photoshop CS6
I completely agree with “that doesn't mean Photoshop is good for everything”. I’ve been using Illustrator since version 3 and still use it today. But, for saving iOS or Android solid color UI assets, I’m all for Photoshop and Generator. And for that, Photoshop is actually better — Illustrator’s pixel preview of vector is sub-par (stray antialiasing and other issues).

Scott, I think you have to admit that Photoshop is actually an acceptable vector design tool for some situations.

It depends what you need the SVG for. You’re right though, support for exporting SVGs is sketchy at best, but if you just want solid icons or path data, it works really well.

Photoshop’s Generator can save SVGs.

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 Is it possible to have global color swatches or color styles in Photoshop?
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.

comment When I export an image from Illustrator, why is it a slightly different color in the exported image?
It’s also worth noting that profile conversion is a bad thing. It often leads to rounding (visible as banding) and clipping. If you can create with your display set up as sRGB with no conversion, you’ll be better off for it. Print design is not the same as UI design when it comes to colour management.

comment When I export an image from Illustrator, why is it a slightly different color in the exported image?
Nope. The main difference is that UI typically isn’t colour managed — if you provide a file with an ICC profile and pixel that’s #ff0000, then iOS, OS X and Android will display it as #ff0000 with no conversion. If you do the same for a JPEG photo on the web or for print, the profile will be used to convert to the display’s colour space. They are absolutely NOT the same. People who argue they are clearly have no UI design experience.
