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?

comment I have a Photoshop .pat file, but I don't have Photoshop
That maybe true. In this case it's all about handling one single file, for which it might just be enough.

comment Edit Smartobject in current window
You don't have to drag them back in. Simply save and close them and your main file should update them accordingly.

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 still think that smarting up the designers is better than dumbing down the software. You want them to be responsible workers and I don't think that can be done by taking responsibility away. Have you asked them why they change it? Maybe there is a good reason.

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?
It sounds like you are trying to solve a communication problem with software/scripts. What exactly keeps you from asking the designers not to change the paragraph styles?

comment How to create the effect in this animated GIF of morphing faces?
Great addition on how to execute those details. I totally missed the gradient mask.

comment How to produce a blurred abstract (frosted glass) background like this?
There really isn't. It's either an image or gradient, or multiple semi-transparent gradients, blurred out and a elyptical vignette to finish it off. Everything else is just tweaking those settings.

comment Exporting iconsets to XAML
Glad I was of help. I've been experimenting with it and will update my question as the biggest issue is not the export anymore but rather the carrying over of naming conventions.

comment How can I overcome the impulse to continuously critique (and possibly rework) my designs?
I can certaily relate (and I agree this needs re-wording). Two things come to mind: Keep the development steps, print and hang them. It's easier to apprechiate your work when you can see all the changes and drafts that went into it. Secondly, show it to people. You didn't design it for yourself but for the eyes of others.

comment How to convey requirements with a designer?
Like Lauren said, you got what you asked and weren't happy. Without further detail it's hard for a designer to correct the work. Or in other words: If meeting the requirements isn't good enough, what will be?

comment Importing spreadsheet data as layers into Adobe Illustrator
"Data merge" for business cards would only take seconds in InDesign. Is there a specific reasone you are choosing Illustrator?

Could you add the resulting PNG. I can't reproduce this result.

comment Export InDesign CS5 file for Corel Draw
PDF should be your choice if you want to preserve your design. Why hand over the source file at all?

comment client logo - large dropshadow and awkward angle - looks terrible on any media, any guidance?
There are quite a few questions on making nicer shadows, if that's what you are looking for. e.g. graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/5251/…

Exact duplicate of itself or wrong link?

comment Is there an icon set containing icons for different platforms/stores (e.g. App Store, Play, Windows 8 Store, etc.)
Those stores supply "bagdges" to link to their store items, maybe that will suit your needs.

Then I suggest to go with Joonas idea to use the trial version. That's simply the problem with free software; sometimes it is not as advanced as the expensive market leader.

comment Photoshop - Multiple layer styles of the same type
You could convert the original layer to a smart object before duplicating. Then you only have to change the content of one smart object and all others will change with it.
