comment What is the tool that web designers do to present prototype
Yeah, the best way to test anything is natively on the device. Other than that I'd look into getting emulators for android/ios/etc. Finally you could get a browser add-on that re-sizes your window to a certain size to simulate a certain device.

By having those devices? Adobe Edge also let's you live preview your work on pretty much any device

comment Am I allowed to embed Typekit fonts directly into a website and host them myself?
Thanks Scott, just came to this conclusion myself. Seems like it's best to seek out licenses that I need directly from the font foundry.

comment How would you rate this logo-concept for a fiber optic Internet company and how can I improve it?
I'd think you can stick with having the cables be an N but perhaps it should just be more obvious. What about taking an actual N and just manipulating the ends and thickness of it to make it look more like cable?

comment How to duplicate an image into a new PSD and keep the original title (name) of the image?
I can verify that it exists in CS5 -- and apparently it's been around since CS3

comment Am I working too slow?
Sounds like you've got a bad boss. But you also need to make sure that you're properly communicating your own obstacles and communicate the difficulty and time involved in these projects. Did someone have that job before you? Were they cranking out stuff that fast? What was their quality like?

comment How do the terms image, picture, graphic etc. relate to each other?
Right, but those would be contextually based, as they often are in English. I'm not disagreeing with the validity of the question, I think it's good to ask, as it is difficult to understand the nuances between them by definition.

comment How do the terms image, picture, graphic etc. relate to each other?
German does have translations and distinctions for these words though. Ein Foto und eine Skizze sind doch anders? So I suppose it's not a language issue but rather a definition issue.

comment What Color Theory goes into designing camouflage?
Desserts can be all different kinds of colors, not just tan. That aside, I've never heard of anyone needing to blend into cake or ice cream or any other type of dessert. I suppose perhaps if you had someone hiding inside of a cake it may be of some use, but I digress.

comment Did Photoshop change vector formats?
Since you're working for the same company, you should ask for a CC subscription if possible. That would take care of any incompatibility issues you two are having.

comment Critique: how to awesomize this logo?
I just wanted to comment and make sure you mean alley as in a small pathway between two buildings, and not ally as in a friend or a mutual alliance.

comment Do I need to create my images at twice the pixel dimensions on a retina display?
But wouldn't you still want to export a 16x16 icon at 32x32 for macs? I guess I'm a little confused about how this works.

Hey, you're right! Let me see if I can salvage this post. Though it looks like the question itself is broken too :)

comment How to turn a path with straight lines into a curved path automatically in Illustrator?
This will not turn the lines into a single path, it will just round out the edges.

comment How to separate and reposition select parts of image
I'm a little confused, could you give more details? Is your source image a JPG, or PSD? (As in, are there layers to work with?) I'm just a little confused about what exactly it is you're trying to do.

comment How to slice this pattern for HTML/CSS
Possible duplicate of Testing if a BG will Repeat Tile Properly in Photoshop?. Its answers address how to accomplish what you're looking for. Here is another example. If you read through it you'll note that you use offset to see where it needs to be cleaned up, and then you clean up the edges
