comment Make Multiple Circles In Photoshop
I would add, a final step, before saving, make a copy and then select all of the text and then select Text > Convert to Shape—this will make your text into a vector so it scales. cheers!

comment Floating info menu in Photoshop CS5
When you say, "pixel information," what exactly do you mean, or what information do you want to be displayed near the cursor?

comment Create equirectangular/sphere projection map
Yes, Alan is totally correct. Painting on the object itself (projection painting) will make the painting/cloning look proper based on the camera angle and the surface of the object, as opposed to painting directly on the texture map (which may not have a 1:1 pixel ratio).

comment “Fake” 3d effect in Photoshop/Illustrator with raster images
Also, I should note, if you want some depth (thickness) to the floating layers, make 3D Extrusions as opposed to 3D Postcards. Cheers!

comment How to design 3D logos like this?
Yes, however, you can render at any resolution you'd like, non-destructively, whenever you'd like, much like an EPS. So if you need 72 dpi for screen and 300 dpi for print, it's all the same... 3D is very much like vector, the (non-shader) textures are the raster portion, but everything else is quite scaleable—and if the raster information is even average resolution it should not be an issue unless you're very close to a low res surface. Cheers!

comment How to make an image look like it's been printed
...Also, I'd like to agree with the sentiment, that nothing beats the real thing, and that if you can take a photo of your background/subject image and then impose on that, then great as 3D isn't always the best/right choice... it's just an variation on a workflow. In addition, you could order an embossing stamp from a stationary store for less than $100.00 and actually do it for real. Cheers!

comment How to make an image look like it's been printed
@RKS: Not necessarly. Illustrator would be good but rather ridged in it's effect. Photoshop may be a better way to go, using the standard Layer Effects, or using a combination of Photoshops' (CS6 Extended) 3D tools, material textures, and Layer Mask effects. I've posted an illustration on the 3D method below.

comment Photoshop blurring peaks (it's hard to describe in text)
Oh! I just realized, you can do the same thing in Photoshop CS6 using Filters>Blur>Tilt-Shift..., without having to define a selection at all. Better yet, if you convert the layer to a Smart Object (Smart Filter) you can apply the Tilt-Shift blur non-destructively. Cheers!

comment Photoshop blurring peaks (it's hard to describe in text)
In addition, you can store the unmodified (sharp) selection (Layer Mask) then use the Feature properties in the Mask properties panel to adjust feathering... non-destructively, so you can change it. Cheers!

comment How to slightly rotate my photography images with a little twist of 3d perspective?
I agree, it might seam like a sledghammer for tac, but since a designer probably already has Photoshop open... Here's another example for the same thing that someone else asked. The 3D camera and Blur in the last image are a cool effect. graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/6791/…

+1's for Photoshop's 3D tools and user experience refresh. I can't post an image in the comments so I'll post one below of a quick example of the first logo. Cheers!
