comment Sync up photoshop canvas with mobile screen?
@Joonas: We sort of have USB support if you’re using Personal Hotspot via USB: bjango.com/help/skalapreview/personalhotspot Adding direct USB support isn’t easy and may not be possible while abiding by the App Store rules. We’ll do what we can though.

comment How to share Global Colors in Sketch App?
@Jessica I’ve just added another potential method. Not ideal, but it might be good enough.

comment How to share Global Colors in Sketch App?
@Jessica I think I’ve figured out why — the color profile in the image needs to match the current display for the values to be maintained. So it works on one Mac, but (unless the other Mac is the same model and generation) might not be accurate on other Macs. Stripping the ICC profile of the PNG doesn’t help. Gah. Setting up a PNG with the correct profile doesn’t seem like a fun idea. Sorry! Please note that this is an issue with the OS X Color Picker, not Sketch.

comment Sync up photoshop canvas with mobile screen?
@Stephan-v There’s a fair bit of data being transferred (Skala Preview sends uncompressed images), so a few seconds is probably the best you can hope for with a similar setup. We’re working on making it faster and more stable, but anything below ~2 seconds is difficult while maintaining quality.

comment Font size on iOS7 looks different from Photoshop even though resolution in mockup is same as iPhone dimensions
The document DPI does actually matter if you’re using points, because Photoshop uses DPI to convert points to pixels. And it is for this reason that a Retina mockup for an iPhone 5 design should be 144DPI. A non-Retina mockup should be 72DPI.

1 CSS px = 1 iOS point = 1 Photoshop point (if the document DPI is set up correctly).

comment Generate/Extract for Illustrator?
Just checking that you know this: Photoshop can export SVGs using Generator. There are definitely limitations on what’s possible, but for single colour icons and simpler web interface assets, it’s a good option if want automated SVG exporting.

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.

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.

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.
