comment How to put a 'gap' between pages in a spread in Indesign
Cheers Alan, I hoped to have objects spanning multiple pages so unlikely multiple documents will work. another work-around could be a single 'page' that is 4 panels wide + the gaps between and then use gutters. I just hoped there might be a more elegant method.

comment How to put 4 pages next to each other in Indesign
Thanks Alan, worked well, then i realised i would really love a 50mm gap between the sheets since they won't actually touch when they get pinned up. Posted a new question: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/2496/…

comment Colors in PNG inconsistent between Windows and Mac
Looking at the values you give in edit 1. my guess is that OS is irrelevant, as photoshop and paint.net provided the same value. Photoshop CS3 on Windows: (181,10,0)

comment What elements should be on an iPhone app's splash screen?
the reason apple recommends using a the default interface as splash is because it gives the illusion that the app has launched faster than it really has, i.e. "the app has loaded, now its loading the content". If the view your app opens to is consistent enough, then do this.

comment Creating Line Based Shapes In Illustrator…
you don't need to use live paint to achieve the effect in second shape - just use the 'fill colour' part of the colour palette

comment How to get this design in photoshop?
as a totally personal opinion: that shadow effect is awful- i don't know why everyone is using it all across the web. I should add: if you want to know why i think its 'awful' i'd be happy to answer that in another question

Hi sanjeev, welcome. this question needs more detail; can you tell us specifically the effect you want. e.g. the bendy look created by the shadow (see this post meta.graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/52/…)
