Can you do that in any Adobe programs?

comment Using incomplete web designs in a portfolio
I didn't feel it was informative enough to be considered an answer. I'd want to put more effort into it first. Once I find the time to do that (maybe later tonight) I'll reformat as an answer.

comment How do you explain the value of native files to an uneducated client?
Whether they read it or not is their responsibility. Yes, it might feel weird to say "It's in the contract", but the fact is, it is. There's probably a more elegant way of putting it, and I think @Lauren Ipsum had a good idea for how to present it.

comment Using incomplete web designs in a portfolio
I would think client work is more valuable because it shows you actually have clients and it reaffirms what your resume may say. as far as fully functional websites go in regards to portfolios, I would say that you should only need a couple of examples and the rest could just be design mock-ups. Besides, are you applying for a web developer or a web designer position or both? The answer to that question may help balance that equation out.

Whatever contract you're using should specify that you maintain the source/native files, that way there is no confusion and they can't complain about it.

comment Creating realistic shadow of an irregular object
You've got a pretty good start. I think what you're missing is an actual shadow on the wire. Because without it, it just looks flat, but the shadow underneath is good in my opinion!

comment Can you re-number the order of artboards in Illustrator CS4?
The only problem I see with this issue is that if you have 15 artboards and the order is 15, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 1 then this will take some time.

comment Adobe Photoshop CC: deleting only the outgoing/trailing handle/direction line at an achor
I'm not sure I understand, doesn't ALT-clicking give you the "incoming handle?" What do you mean by incoming/outgoing? could you link to an image maybe?

comment Should design dimensions be in inches (or any other physical dimension unit) instead of pixels?
If you're designing for screens you should be using pixels. Pixels are the only measurement to stay constant across screens. Also ppi is irrelevant on screens, only dimensions matters.

comment Flat Rate vs. Hourly: Fast work = lower pay?
Depends on what the client wants. If they want it done quickly, then you're still the more attractive option.

comment How do you align an image to pixels in Illustrator
Alright, but using the option and the replacing the object worked? i was thinking about including that in my answer but didn't think it was necessary but it seems it is. I've edited my answer to include this.

comment How to apply, blend or overlay a texture or pattern image to a layer in Photoshop?
@Dominic, I disagree with the edit you made to the original question. It's confusing to add that Note in there, it should be in your answer, not in the question.

comment What is the average pixel size for human writing?
The problem with human writing pixel size is that it varies from person to person. Not only does each individual vary in how they write but also is how their eyes read in information. Some people have better eye resolution than other people. This is why it's advisable to get your eyes calibrated so you know you're seeing things properly.

comment What skills to learn for web development?
This is the right forum for asking questions, however we concentrate on the design aspect of things and here at GD.SE we answer specific questions that have a clear answer and are applicable to a wider audience. As it stands your question is too broad and complex to be answered in our typical Q&A format. If you have a specific question about certain techniques or design principles feel free to ask another question.

comment How to sell a design to a company?
Exactly this. I knew of someone who shared their designs with a company she wanted to work for without an NDA. The company stole all of her designs and she didn't get the job.

What's wrong with taking your existing PSD and just upping the opacity to 100% and changing the blending mode to Normal?

comment How do I make a texture similar to the ones on Subtle Patterns, but with colour?
While this helps in creating your own patterns, it really doesn't address the question of "How do I change the color of an existing pattern?" That being said the question's title, and the question asked in the body of the question are actually two different questions.
