How do I create a 10″ envelope in Adobe InDesign CS4?

Question by Steph: How do I create a 10″ envelope in Adobe InDesign CS4?
I need to create a corporate identity package for a design class, using InDesign CS4, I have already created the letterhead and business card, but how do I create a 10″ envelope? There is no option for envelopes in the default document sizes but I know it is possible. Help??

Answer:

Answer by iDesign71
Instead of picking from the list of preset sizes in the New Document dialog, key in your own values – when you select say A4 you’ll see 210 and 297 but you can enter these values yourself too.

10″ envelope – do you mean C4 to fit a piece of A4 paper without folding? If so size is 324 x 229 mm, set orientation (portrait or landscape) depending on your requirements.

If a different size, measure the envelope you have to match and enter corresponding values.

How to install photoshop cs4 without loosing .bmp in new files to create?

Question by Sam Merlotte: How to install photoshop cs4 without loosing .bmp in new files to create?
After installing photoshop i loose ability to create .bmp on desktop (Right mouse click > new > bmp).
why photoshop replace this and i want it back.
HOW?

Answer:

Answer by Nahum
This has more to do with your operating system than with Photoshop. PS does take ‘ownership’ of the BMP format, but you can return it to the OS.

If you’re on Windows 7, you have to make a registry change. This site has a file that can automate the change for you:

In Windows XP, you can add items to the C:\WINDOWS\System32\SHELLNEW folder. Copies of these will appear in the “New…” dialog.

Q&A: Does Photoshop CS4 require you to manually create alpha channels to save clear images?

Question by Luna: Does Photoshop CS4 require you to manually create alpha channels to save clear images?
I use 7.0 and it automatically saves images as you make them transparent or opaque. I have never had to create an alpha channel because it already does it. But when I tried demos of the newer versions of photoshop, instead of saving the TGA image as clear or opaque, it just makes the checkered areas solid white.

Does anyone know why? Did they remove this feature from the newer versions?

Answer:

Answer by Joe-Devola
I’m not sure about TGA’s but you could save it as a gif or png.
File > Save for Web (make sure transparency is checked)

Is there a way to create a live broadcasting flash project in adobe flash CS4?

Question by Callum P: Is there a way to create a live broadcasting flash project in adobe flash CS4?
I would like to create a live broadcasting adobe flash CS4 project to film live 24/7 on my webcam, I’ve tried blog tv, and world television websites, but there crap, so is there a way, a walkthrough, an actionscript code to do what my question asks?

Answer:

Answer by Kris M
You should look into a using a flash media server. They’ll be a monthly fee, but its the ideal tool for doing what you’re describing.
Red 5 is an open source project that is similar if you wanted to setup your own server.

What you’re asking is not a remedial coding task however.
Both uploading the streaming video and user playback would need to use the netconnection class and netstream class.

you’ll want to become familiar with this class:

Question by caitie578: Is there a way in Adobe CS4 to be able to create PDF presentations?
In Photoshop CS3 you were able to just go File>Automate>PDF Presentation. CS4 does not have this option, is there somewhere else I have to go to make it as seamlessly?
