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.

comment How to apply, blend or overlay a texture or pattern image to a layer in Photoshop?
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.

comment How to set the default line cap and corner style in Illustrator CS5
The Windows path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS#\Cool Extras\en_US\Templates I believe. Though the Cool Extras bit may vary by version, I'm on 5.1.

comment Is there a good sans serif condensed safe font for web?
Check out Google Webfonts they have some thicker fonts (Gudea, Francois One, Istok Web, etc.) and they are made to use on websites.

comment Creating see-through graphics for window decals in Photoshop
If you have a printer in mind give them a call and they should be able to provide you with the right information.

comment Creating see-through graphics for window decals in Photoshop
I would imagine that it's printed on transparent sheet, but you would still need to lower the opacity of your artwork to the proper transparencies. After all, they can't possibly predict what should be transparent and how transparent it should be. But this is just an education guess, I've never done this kind of printing before.

comment Can I use CSS spritesheets to give a div a re-sizable background?
I made a quick example (without the corners or background-image) here.

+1 for the effort of writing a script, no matter how many naps you need to take while waiting for it to finish.

comment Is Adobe CS2 free?
Adobe has always reset my license keys when I asked them to, they're pretty good and quick about it too.

comment How do I remove a green screen background in Photoshop?
possible duplicate of Alpha Transparency Remove Background Photoshop. Check out that question, it should answer this one. There's also this question as well.

comment Export photoshop layers programatically to individual pngs of different sizes
Ferdi, it seems like you are posting a lot of scripts (which is great!) I would recommend though that you open a github account and just upload your scripts there. That way people look at the scripts, download them, and even ask to improve your scripts and contribute if they see a way to make it even better.

comment Do plotter units define quality in PLT file export?
Hey Nicholas, thanks for providing answers to these questions and sorry that it seems like no one else is sharing any insight. Also don't forget you can mark your own answer as the accepted answer (which is preferable as then this question no longer falls under the "unanswered" category).

comment What size images should I use for PowerPoint Templates?
Make sure that you also adjust the resolution of your computer to best work with the projector or whatever device you are using to display your powerpoint.

comment How can I add perspective to something using Illustrator?
While this is a quick solution Scott, the biggest issue is that the "further away something is" the more stretched out the details get, which is contrary to how perspective actually works. You can see an example here. So it works well for simple shapes and object, but not for anything that has any sort of detail inside of it.

comment Lorem ipsum equivalent for Spanish, Polish and other languages?
Well, Lorem ipsum is in Latin on purpose. It's supposed to look like nonsense to people so you don't concentrate on it much because it's designed to just be placeholder text to take uproom. While I suppose it could be used to test out typography, it is not its intended purpose. However I do think it's a valuable question to ask if there's a tool that allows you to preview various fonts with non-Latin characters.

comment Script iterating through layers stops halfway
extension seems to just be a parameter, most likely a string, that is used to make a name in combination with the layer name.
