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.

comment Resize a collection of different sized png images to the same dimensions
@Alan has a correct answer here. I am a Big Nerd so I would write my own Applescript to do this, but there you go.

comment Resize a collection of different sized png images to the same dimensions
Which platform and which version of Photoshop? You can definitely script this, but the platform and version are necessary to give you a reasonable answer.

comment What is kerning and what is the point of it?
Welcome to the community. Please be careful about promoting your own site here and in the other Stack Exchange websites. There is a very fine line between thoughtful help using one's own resources and simply generating more hits on a website. Your response definitely falls within the former (despite you being new here), but others may take a less tolerant view.

comment Tutorial to Create a Wunderlist-like Icon in Photoshop
@kaiser: "...it's abs. not harder than I described." Screenshots to show just how easy would be keen, then. Otherwise, this just isn't a very good answer.

Web questions are allowed here provided the questions and answers relate to CSS affecting layouts and not just to any of the other technologies typical in web stacks (i.e., not just HTML, SQL, JS).

comment How to raster vectors (AI) into 1bit tif in 2000dpi
Actually, despite your request, I am going to ask why you need such a large file. Knowing why you need something like this might help us offer a better way to accomplish what it is you are doing.

Why was this voted down? A ship's helm is as traditional as it gets when talking about navigation as a concept.

comment What's the difference between saving a vector as .AI and saving as .EPS
@bozdoz: The necessity of saving to AI as opposed to EPS is really up to how the art is made and its intended use. EPS simply doesn't support everything AI does. DA01 is right about saving in native as a "just in case" measure.

comment Branding a company that has no public identity
+1 for looking at the business decisions. It could be that MyCompanyLLC is simply more of a "banker's brand" than a public, customer-facing brand, and what the governing board intends to do with that.

comment Branding a company that has no public identity
"My boss is a database administrator..." Right there is your first problem. If your company is so large, then surely it must have a marketing department. They would be better qualified to manage the branding of your organization.

comment Storyboard for a product pitch
Realistically, you can't storyboard or create a functional spec for an application that is undefined. You have to start from somewhere, and the core function, what problem it is trying to solve, of the application is where to begin so that really needs to be stated. A storyboard is an elaboration, a visual representation, of the the core functionality of the application.

comment The most advanced JPEG image compression on mac?
What is it you are trying to accomplish? If JPG compression is such an issues, then maybe you shouldn't be working with JPGs. The type of compression a JPG uses has never been an issue for me, but rather finding that balance between size and image quality using the defaults afforded to me by Photoshop. Done and done.
