comment What are the more respected sans serif fonts that come standard on most computers?
Also, I'd have to add a "citation needed" to "Verdana tends to get the most love". I'm not sure if I've experienced that.

comment What are the more respected sans serif fonts that come standard on most computers?
It's always confused me why Arial gets panned so much while Helvetica gets so much love. To me, Arial seems to fix a lot of the things that I really dislike about Helvetica such as its R, G, and C and is more human. That said, I'm not a fan of Arial's Q.

comment Different Logo Colors for Different Uses, Appropriate?
It seems as if having multiple copies of your logo (sometimes for no functional reason) in different colours is a current trend. I can think of a few examples including City of Melbourne, Telstra, or even varying both colour and shape of the mark eg Pepsi.

comment Identify the font in the King's Hawaiian logo
While it's awesome to see a response from the company itself, this doesn't seem to actually answer the question at all, apart from saying it was a "custom font" - well we already knew that from the swooshes, etc - it kind of goes without saying.

Yes, it still isn't a perfect match.

Here's a much bigger copy of the logo if it helps.

comment GIMP Rounded Rectangle Radius > 100px?
No, no cap. 100% means that it's as rounded as it can possibly be. The percent sign means that it isn't measured in pixels, percentage is a measurement where "100%" is the maximum, meaning the diameter is the same as the smaller dimension of your rectange. 100% on a square would turn it into a circle, for instance. You can't get any more rounded than it. Perhaps I've misunderstood your question, or what you want to do - if so could you add an example of what you want to achieve to your question?

comment Can the end of double spacing after periods be dated?
Some of the absolutes about the "one space rule" are not as absolute as you - and many - think. The practice of additional spacing after a paragraph is not something that originated with the typewriter, it dates back a long time before that. Single spacing as a "rule" is relatively modern. Moreover there is an important distinction between double spacing by pressing space twice, or additional spacing that is added during typesetting when a space appears after the end of a sentence - many don't consider the two as distinct. The link in the above comment is a good start.

comment Is this a photo or 3D render, and how would I give a photo a similar effect?
@4thSpace well clearly the 3D rendering has also had a bloom effect applied which is why I mentioned it. You could certainly get a similar effect on a photo, yes. You probably want the "hard light" variant or a combination of mostly "hard light", some "soft light".

Great 3D work there. Note however that just because this is a 3D render doesn't mean you can't get the exact same colour treatment with a photo. As Marc's answer reveals, a gradient map is just one way of going about this (I'd wanna give it a bit more saturation there Marc). Plus you'll wanna give it some bloom.
