comment False appearance of quality loss?
The Adobe calibration thing doesn't change the monitor only how the image inside of a PS/Adobe window is displayed, even PS icons on the desktop, but nothing else non-adobe related, so it would look the same in both monitors, even swapping in your friend's monitor. Like I said, it does weird things that I thought were totally unrelated to my problem before. I am definitely not saying this is your problem, just something to be aware of. But yes, hopefully someone else has seen this and knows what to do to fix it

comment False appearance of quality loss?
yes, I have never seen this before unless it was a smart object. (I have used PS since the mid 80s, Fat Mac days, and both Mac and PC) I have seen the Adobe software controlling your display do some really weird things (show red/blue as maroon/purple) in PS while the rest of the computer looks normal, and if that is your problem you might need to re-calibrate

I can't really tell with your post, but sometimes pasting into PS can import the copy as a "Smart Object", usually showing an X like cross over this image before you actually place the image, this sometimes resizes the image. Could this be what you are seeing? Also check "Menu > Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts... > [Edit Tab]" and make sure your "CTRL+C" is "Copy" rather than something like "Copy Merged" and your "CTRL+V" is "Paste Special > Paste In Place" rather than "Paste" (I know, right?!?) and this might give you the expected results.

comment Adobe Photoshop 6.0 - Can you see the EXACT pixel position?
This link shows a similar question with a few more options you might like to know exist (its CS5, but I think the options are about the same) superuser.com/questions/459216/… but more important, and the reason for posting, is that I saw the picture of the LDS building in SLC in your pic, and just wanted to comment on it ;-)

comment What are the steps in designing a website?
For anyone coming in later: @Darth_Vader mentioned using InDesign rather than PhotoShop. I know PS sounds so inviting right now especially if you are a PS guru, as I was, but I was "Forced" to learn InDesign a couple of years ago, and B!+©#ed and moaned about it until it clicked in my head and I got it. It is definitely worth the effort to learn, and the extra $$ you can charge for making your proposal and design doc using InDesign is worth the few days it takes to learn it. So go learn it!!

comment How to create the round/rectangle dialog on GIMP or Photoshop?
point out that the rectangle tool is right next to the pen tool and that you can adjust the corner radius in the tool's options bar

comment How to capture likeness in a portrait?
Another thing to think of it to focus on what makes his face different than other people. What makes a man look different than his brother? Focus on these details and not so much on the normal human qualities and you have a better chance. This picture is instantly recognizable as Obama: bit.ly/ZriXtR, but looks NOTHING like a real human.

comment Is there a resource that documents all mobile device screen resolutions in one location?
Unfortunately the number of devices is growing by the day. Fortunately we work with Digital Media and can build our apps and such to be responsive to the different sizes (rather than having to make a different spark plug for ever type of car there is). Also fortunately for us, Wikipedia has a pretty good history of documenting these. I realize it isn't what you are looking for, but that is a pretty big project you are trying to set up. If you get it going, you will have a lot of followers.

comment Why do html/css texts appear so “pixelated” compared to texts from photoshop or gimp?
I think it has more to do with the OS than the browser. Some browsers might try and anti-alias, but you can have windows try and emulate it. I don't like how it does it though, it always looks out of focus.
