Easiest way: in Illustrator with a grid

comment Smallest readable printed font size for Calibri on my inkjet printer?
A very easy way to find out, since your are the reference here, is to print a text page with many different sizes (and perhaps fonts too).

comment InDesign: In a table of contents, conflicts between bold & italic text
Not sure that has any influence on the issue as it is reproducable on my machine and is actually about paragraph styles...

comment Illustrator: How to add 3 or 4 part gradient to this logo?
I think he simply meant to comment on the fact that this shape stems from a question how to make the shape. And perhaps now we get to live the entire process of creating this logo with him. Maybe expecting text placement as a next question (and so on). And no, there is nothing wrong with the question itself.

comment Inner shadow issue in Illustrator CS5
That is in fact, a very neat trick. I will try it out and see what I can get out of it.

comment What is the best way to create light-weight PNG images?
Not sure what you mean by that. Compressing and removing meta data is really all you can do other than actually making smaller images.

comment Bulk download or Web service offering brand logos
The problem you are going to have is to specify what logos as there is no naming convention and those sites offer sometimes multiple versions. I guess depending on the project it could be an option to mail all the companies for their logos. But that really only works if you have a business relationship with them.

comment InDesign: Blank pages on 1,4 when creating a booklet?
Quickest fix: insert blank pages for page 2 and 23 (the inside of the cover)

comment InDesign: Blank pages on 1,4 when creating a booklet?
Have the same experience with printers. Document supplied in order of page numbers. They won't accept 22 pages though.

comment When saving as a PSD, have a PNG also saved automatically
How exactly did you do this in CS5? I habe never heard of this.

comment CS5 export layers as files no number sequence
While I dislike the numbering as much as you, they do make sense in addressing layers with identical names. So for me, renaming them with a small app afterwards is part of the workflow now.

comment What materials should a web designer using Photoshop send to a developer?
I agree, those details should all be adressed. I was covering the basics from a designers point of view. For me, these details have been worked out collaboratively though in the past instead of me dictating what happens. It depends on the work relation of developer an designer but I personally like to work in a back and forth way trying to combine design and coding requirements to find ideal results.

comment How to convert every pixel of raster picture to square objects in Illustrator?
I have been looking for a solution to this as well, Thanks a lot! SO far I only found "just use Flash".

comment Screenshots on Mac Monitor Widget
I have seen this too but can't really comment on the developer side of it. From a graphic point of view it's a merge of 2 screenshots, the app and the empty desktop. Here is an example: realmacsoftware.com/courier

comment Software recommendations for PDF layout review
I found that this feature has to be enabled first. Something like "extend functionality".

comment How does one turn a white background transparent in Photoshop but keep transparency?
I prefer the masking method as well. But I'd like to add that that leaves white and gray pixel on the shadow. So instead of using the original image, I apply the mask to a solid black layer, ensuring the shadow to be made of one color and transparency alone.

comment Is there a way to extract the pantone colors from a scanned image?
The device you listed and the Pantone Guide are the only options I can think of.
