comment My Screenshoots are “too light” for printing
I have to disagree with the close vote. This is an issue I have seen before. Basically, not enough color is applied. While there usually is a maximum of color (300%), they seem to have a minimum. But this is determined by the printer, not the publisher. And it is something you have control over to change.

comment What program can I use to convert a 2D industrial design plan to 3D model?
That's mostly the point of 3D software. I would simply look into tutorials for your software. If you have issues turning 2D plans into 3D in 3Dmax I suspect you'll run into the same issues in another software.

That's quite a call. I would test it at least before investing that much money into software. (Unless money is not an issue, then knock yourself out ;) )

The bigger issue you are going to have (assuming ou are talking about a paper plan) is tracing the plan. It all depends on the complexity of your "part". But that goes for 2D as well as for the 3D.

comment What technique is used to create these image based icons?
"photoshop, mask, image, vector" might give more results. e.g.: dummies.com/how-to/content/…

Literally every 3D programm fits that description. One thing you need to do to narrow it down is look into file handling. 2D is not a format. So find out what output formats you have and then look for the 3D software that can handle it.

comment What are good alternatives to adobe software (InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator)?
Have you tried alternativeto.net? That's sometimes a good starting point. Have you tried google? You surely can't be the first person asking this question.

comment Better image compression by combining images?
A sprite sheet is often used as it only loads one file. Also, it's easier to maintain. But I doubt it has much to do with image compression.

comment Simple Line Fading Away At Both Ends
I agree it is the simplest way. But if you ever change your mind (or the client does), you have to do it over and over again. So why not learn it how to do it properly from the start?

comment Simple Line Fading Away At Both Ends
Yes. The fading out edges can be done in non-destructive layer styles. While erasing is a destructive workflow. Meaning you can't tweak it later.

comment Simple Line Fading Away At Both Ends
While you were able to reproduce the proposed picture, I would like to add that using the eraser is not always very precise (and I haven't used it in 10 years myself). Changing the transparency later is just a lot easier with layer styles.

comment InDesign: Is there any way to lock all the styles (paragraph and character) and master pages and keep all of them in a master document only?
I don't want that. That's a straw man argument. But sophisticated layout software has its focus on editing, not on locking it. I am not you so I can't talk to your designers. But moving text boxes off grid is bad designing. So I still believe it's a designer error and not a software error. Either way, I don't know of a way to lock down InDesign. I can only tell you what I expect from designers I work with and how I would solve it.

You have explained your reasons. It's not that I don't understand them. The situation is just that software designed to give designers freedom can't just be locked down. It would defeat its purpose. And the effort would certainly be greater than talking to your designers for 15min.

comment Help me recreate this text effect
I think it would help to state what you have tried so far and what you have problems with. Or maybe also provide an image of it and not only of the desired result. As it stands it sounds like a tutorial request, which is not the purpose here (and there are plenty tutorials on the web about specifically this).

Yes. I should have said the color choice was wrong and not just the choice of black.

um, I think you got the black wrong. Black shiny surfaces make better mirrors...

comment How to remove part of a raster image?
Recreating might be the faster way. Plus you end up with a lossless file.

comment What should I do to get an image equal exactly to my design
Alternatively, pasting it into Photoshop does give you the correct bounding box.

comment Is it legal to use copyrighted fonts without a license for non-profit projects?
First of all, how will you squire them? And secondly, your project will have some purpose, like promoting something. That's worth something too, even if there is no direct cash flow.

comment How to draw different coloured waves in Photoshop?
I don't think there is an easy way. What have you tried so far and where did you get stuck?
