By day, I am the Director of Publishing Technology at Jones & Bartlett Learning. I spend most of my time in Xcode and Applescript.

At night, I am a degree candidate at Harvard University, Extension School working towards a Bachelor of Liberal Arts with a concentration in Computer Science.

The rest of the time, such as it is, I futz around with my website, Oatmeal & Coffee.

FontCreator is not a font management tool; it is a commercial font editor

comment Photoshop CS6 - Get width of paragraph text in pixels by script
Good idea, though that also assumes the text is by itself on a layer and alters the document like mine.

comment Photoshop CS6 - Get width of paragraph text in pixels by script
@JohnB: I think you're right, but TextItem appears to be the lowest, most atomic object in the hierarchy. I think the values being returned are a bug (shocker) because they have no basis in reality from what I see.

comment graphic design - high or low resolution
I would add that web design itself could be done at a high resolution to ensure the art, and even a mock-up of the site, could be printed if need be (it happens), but also as you note to help support Retina (and similar) displays.
