Indeed. I'm surprised they didn't use a dotted or slashed 0.

What modifications do you think "et" and "ro" need? Do you have a screenshot of the problem?

comment GIMP Rounded Rectangle Radius > 100px?
Ah ha! I see - you're looking in a different place. If you make a regular rectangle selection first, then go to Select -> Rounded Rectangle, it will bring up the above dialog where you input the roundedness as a percentage.

I have a hard time believing they would implement it differently for the Mac. Do you have a screenshot? Here's the relevant page of the documentation saying it's a percentage: docs.gimp.org/en/script-fu-selection-rounded-rectangle.html

comment Bill a client for a design error?
Maybe you could add more detail about what happened. I'm finding it hard to understand what the client sent you and what they asked for, and whose fault the mistake is.

comment Create a Triangle with Rounded Corners
I usually switch to Inkscape to do stuff like this. You could also use Illustrator/CorelDraw/your preferred vector graphics editor. Not that using Photoshop is wrong or foolhardy, I just prefer a dedicated vector graphics editors for these things.

comment I am trying to identify this font used in RSK Group's logo
The "K" really looks like the K from Arial Black - have they combined the typefaces?

Tell you what though, the K really looks like Arial Black's! Is it possible they've used Franklin Gothic for the RS and Arial Black for the K??? Is that even a good idea??

It does indeed look like ITC Franklin Gothic Std Heavy but with the top of the "K" modified.

It's not Arial's capital R, unless they've done a custom modification to it...

comment Switching to GIMP from CS5.5. Is it feasible?
Plugins in GIMP are a whole lotta effort to get working and frequently disappointing, in my experience.
