comment Colors appear differently on webpage when saving in sRGB
Are you using Safari 6 for Mac? This discussion may be of interest: feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/…

comment PSD Files: Quick Preview without opening Photoshop?
+1. This has one caveat though: Maximize PSD and PSB File Compatibility will have to be set to Always (under File Handling in Preferences), otherwise QuickLook shows an all white image.

comment How to use H1, H2 etc. tags properly?
There is sometimes discussion if more than one H1 tag should be used per page. Apart from that, I agree, there isn't much to it.

comment Is there a Photoshop action to create bump, normal and reflection maps for rendering software?
They're all very different things. What are you trying to create those from? Photoshop is a 2D application (with a little bit of 3D in the Extended version), so bump maps, normal maps and reflection maps aren't really its thing.

comment How do I avoid lines at top and left borders of png files exported from Illustrator
I'd recommend using Slices rather than Artboards. Slices are always pixel boundary aligned, Artboards aren't.

comment How is the artwork at Adobe.com created?
If I had to guess, I'd say you're right. Looks like they've used a 3D app to build at least the underlying image.

comment Can I blend layers by formula with brackets?
Yeah, I think so. But I don't think screen is the same as pure addition of the values? I'll edit my response.

comment Text hyphenation in iOS apps
@Lauren Ipsum I'd recommend against justified text, too. But that's definitely my own opinion. Others may disagree. “justifying and using hyphens would reduce fatigue” — I'd say the opposite. Ragged lines give the brain patterns to lock onto.

comment Photoshop - retrieve graphic from off screen / outside canvas
This is the way I do it, too. Definitely works and is quick. +1

comment Layer mask not taking in gradient outlay
Can you provide a bit more info? This should be an easy one to solve, with the right details. A screen grab of your canvas and layers panel would help.

comment What elements should be on an iPhone app's splash screen?
“they would prefer you simply show the default interface devoid of any content” — That's definitely the way to go, if you can swing it. Mobile hardware is really quick these days, so anything too different to the app itself will often be jarring.

comment Triangle for a popover (Photoshop)
Got reference? Scott's answer is a good one... but if you're after something different, visual reference would help.

comment How to Make Letters Like This?
Yeah. The Pathfinder panel in Illustrator is also great for this kind of thing.

Great to hear! :)

comment Is it possible to divide one Photoshop document into multiple source files?
That's ok! You went into far more detail. :)

comment Is it possible to divide one Photoshop document into multiple source files?
Yeah. I think the best answer is that Photoshop shouldn't be used in this way, because that's not its strength.

comment Improved splash screen design
5 seconds seems quite long as a load time. Are there ways you could optimise that, even if the loading finishes on another thread after the main app has finished?

comment Improved splash screen design
Is this a mobile app? How is the splash screen used? How long does it display for? The best splash screen is none at all. Can you remove it completely?

comment When saving as a PSD, have a PNG also saved automatically
Sure could. Looks like Krazer's built something similar! Excellent.

comment How do I create color swatch for Photoshop from a list of RGB values?
Just added another option above... you could create a script to add the swatches directly to Photoshop.
