comment How to change index image to background image in Photoshop
This does not just happen. Someone indexed the image, possibly to reduce file size or use a specific color set.

comment Does the Retina Icon pack represent good value for money? (1200 - 3000 icons for $58+)
If you need them, the are. Try making an icon or have it made and you'll find out that it takes a lot of time/money. Which makes those a good deal by default if you need them.

comment Error opening EPS in GIMP 2.8
I am unsure what your question is and if it relates to graphic design. What is it exactly you are asking of us?

comment Visualizing a droppable field
You can also look at video games, when an item can be picked up in some games the character reaches out. You see that simplified with a hand cursor as well, just look at the hand tool (H) in Illustrator.

comment Classification schemes for icons
Personally I think that clients don't need classifications and designers don't really care. They only care if the icons work well together, with is not always quantifiable. So I guess the only people who need these categories are the ones that buy iconsets. So, the only use is to find icons in a larger set. Which is exactly the same as shopping for anything else, making the a search-optimization question :)

comment Recommendation for 2 column gutter width
That's not what I would take away from that. Have you considered a baseline grid with a proportionate gutter?

comment Design books with quantifiable, real world resources (vintage)?
I am not sure what you ask does really exist. At least it sounds like you are seeking for a level of detail that is simply considered the application of design principles. Design is living and breathing and you can't "nail it down" like that.

Then please share this magic with us. The GIF Format does not support alpha-channel transparency.

comment Recommendation for 2 column gutter width
I don't think it's too specific but rather too broad. There simply is no "standard gutter" for A4 paper.

comment Visualizing a droppable field
"droppable" isn't really anything specific. what you want to do is show that an item can be moved or picked up (unless you can find me a physical object that looks droppable).

comment What makes gradients in graphic design look attractive and what's the best way to use them?
I have used gradients to show a buttons "curvature", so to say. Thats what many UI elements do to give a look of a real button (where you can feel this curvature with your fingers). You can simply use gradients to show a transition from one value to another. But again, I have never looked for a reason to use a gradient, but the other way around. "How can I show curvature or transition? With a gradient, among other techniques."

comment Pathfinder result sightly different from expected!
My point was that you will see this behavior on every screen, just a little different depending on the screen. Ergo, you can't "fix it" in Illustrator.

comment Can you change the opacity of a white image without getting a gray result?
Then I don't understand the question. Do you want it to be gray like the first or whit as the second?

comment Can you change the opacity of a white image without getting a gray result?
Can you provide the file that you are inserting? I suspect that it might simply not be white.

I suspect that this behavior will be different on every screen you use. Have you tested that?

comment Name for the art style with wacky space alien illustrations like on the Area 51 SE site?
I assume you mean more specific than "cartoon"?
