There's a graph tool in Illustrator. This is the resulting artwork when using the Pie Graph Tool in Illustrator: If you want a more elaborate appearance you can: Create your pie graph ungroup apply Effect > 3D > Extrude & Bevel expand alter for better appearance. This is not even half as easy to accomplish with Photoshop. Create it in ...

You can still do it in Photoshop, it takes a little more effort than on Illustrator or Indesign. It will not work with just diagonal text. Activate the grid (Show > Grid) and (View > Snap to Grid) to make the following steps easier. Use the Pen tool (P) to draw a "staircase" Path. Type your text in the staircase: Use a monospaced font (I used Courier in my ...

Try to uncheck all of the other snapping options and check just the one you need. From the top menu: View » Snap to » Guides.

You need enable the Snap Option, and Smart Guides In your case, Snap to Point is the case (View > Snap to Point) . And the Smart Guides (View > Smart Guides) Screen Shots: [I am using Illustrator CS5, but Im sure these have been there for a while, not sure since when]

i would suggest if you import to library the photo to Adobe Flash, this will give you frame by frame the image from which you can select the frame "still image" you want then export iit as JPEG to your computer. hope this was helpful.

Lazy method: Draw the circle with the Ellipse tool With the Direct Selection tool (A, the white arrow) select one of the anchors and delete. Works great if all you want is a simple quick semicircle filled with color. Drawback: it might cause trouble if you try to use stroke or other path operations (because it's an open shape). In which case I'd do it as ...

You cannot select multiple paths in different layers. If you have paths in multiple layers, use the Direct Selection tool A and select one of the paths. Cut and select the target layer. Paste your path there. Repeat until all your paths are in one layer. Now you can select all of them at once.

You need to use Shape Burst. I'm fairly sure this existed for quite some time but its hard for me to remember every update so let me know if not and I'll delete this answer. Apply a Layer Stroke. Switch the fill type to Gradient. Then you'll see more options, change the Style to Shape Burst. Adjust for your desired results:

Inside Photoshop (doubtful) Photoshop (and most other Adobe products) come with an ExtendScript Toolkit, an (somewhat Adobe-flavored) javascript, that might be up for the task. In theory. See here for a dip into acessing the XMP metadata object (which reconciles back to EXIF, IPTC). Some sample code here. I have doubts this is a quick way. And more doubts, ...

With multi channel artwork, the easiest way I have found to provide a quicky overview is to just go into View > Full Screen Mode and take a screenshot. That will save yourself a lot of headaches, but the quality won't be great. If the extra channels are spot colors, you can always select the spot channel(s) and select Merge Spot Channel: The results from ...

Can any one help me how can I crop images from layers? Well... I don't exactly fully understand what the end goal is so let me take a guess. One way that you could crop images from layers is to only hide all of the layers except the one that you want to make the crop size to be. Then go to Menu->Trim->Transparent Pixels && Top, Bottom, Left, Right->...

I usually use this way: On the menu bar, find object, then crop area --> make. And when I export, all I get is everything inside the box. I'll try it on my Illustrator CS2 and I hope there is the same menu on CS3. And if I want to export just the illustration, I export it as .PNG format. Make sure you have chosen the color drop down with transparent.
