comment What pixel width should a designer use for the PSD, given the pixel width of the website?
The design ideally should work at various resolutions. The rule of thumb we follow is that designs are provided at our minimum support desktop resolution (1024x768) and then any size over that just expands naturally. For resolutions smaller than that we do different designs.

comment Legibility of familiar fonts vs. typical considerations for typeface legibility
As you seem to acknowledge yourself, what makes a font good is not how familiar or widespread it may be, but rather the quality of the font itself. A good font will be legible no matter how unfamilar, though a 'good' font is still rather broad as it may change per use case.

comment Spanning text across facing pages in Indesign
Why wouldn't you just use an 11x17 document if that's your intent?

comment Creating a desktop wallpaper for any resolution
You could have a background that's just the logo on a solid color background, and then different resolutions would simply have more or less white-space. You could also create an image, and then change your computer's resolution to test it using different settings and see if that works for you.

comment Preventing adding up of colors for multiple brush strokes
@SirKurt, Naty is 100% right here. Just change the layer's opacity, not the brush's opacity. If you're using tablet pressure to determine opacity, instead use the pressure to determine color and then lower the overall opacity and it will create the same effect without causing the issue you're mentioning.

comment How can I make a pattern transparent in Illustrator, when the elements in the pattern are overlaid and should not show through?
You could just set the transparency of the image using CSS, the benefit there is you can adjust it without needing to resave the image.

comment How to view all layer sizes?
Also if they can share the PSD with you over Adobe Cloud, then you can use the online tools to make measurements and to generate the CSS directly from their site

Hello there! Could you please add more detail to your answer? Personally I'm a bit confused as to what it all means. Thanks!

comment In illustrator file, how to print/report swatch
I think @Scott means that it would need to be scripted, not that he has a script in mind.

comment Split layer based on contiguous area? (PS:CS4)
You'd want to select them with maybe the lasso tool and right-click and cut as new layer.

Why not just do it in illustrator to begin with?

comment Is there a name, term, or practice for off-centering things based on volume rather than by width and height?
@joojaa could you explain that? I don't understand your comment.

comment How to select colors for target audience based on age?
I think Ryan is asking for sources on those things. Obviously they have their reasons for picking what they pick but it sounds like he'd like to know why.

comment Gaussian Blur in Illustrator CC Problem
Sounds like what you really should be using are gradients, not blurs. The blurs are working as intended and you can't just delete part of the blur.

comment Trifold Brochure: Where do the fold lines go-?
Won't the entirely depend on the size of the paper? It's either too broad to answer or unclear to me exactly what you want answered here.

comment What are the best tools/processes for web design refinements / adding polish?
Unfortunately there's no magic pill here. CSS isn't necessarily easy, you need to learn it and practice it to get good with it, just like everything else.

Sounds like OP is already using Save as in the action so I'm not sure what this answer helps with exactly.

Also, not sure if it's relevant or not, but that picture is not from Harry Potter it is from Batman.

comment What is the font used in the www.whitehouse.gov Presidential portraits?
Do you actually need the source font or are you just wanting to create another presidential image and number it? If the latter then you could extract the numbers and fake it.
