    I have a client who I am going to design a book for. I met with her about 4-5 months ago to discuss. She emails me each month to tell me she hasn't advanced any further on the project. She's been overseas...

    It sounds to me like you are hitting a retina issue. When I look at your site the graphics look fine to me on my 25" monitor. I just googled "SquareSpace Retina Support" and quickly...

    I have to add, please ask questions if you are unsure. Even confirmation is good so that you know you are on track.

    I have a junior designer that never asks questions. He just battles through...

    I agree with b, make the images the size you require, then save for web choosing a fairly high setting if that is important to you.

    Hello fellow designers.

    I know most/all/a lot of you use USB Keys to transfer work, send to an annoying printer, exchange files with a client. This is somewhat off topic because I know I can just go buy another USB key for a couple bucks but this is going to annoy me if I don't figure it out.

    I received a pair if USB Keys from my dealership after purchasing my 2008 Lancer. On said USB Key was a bunch of useless info on my car and some free space that I can do whatever I want on it.

    I tried getting rid of the useless information but I CANT And it's driving me up the wall!

    I tried formating it but it won't let me... Does anyone know of a "Force Format" Kind-of-thing? I'm on a Mac but if you give me a solution on a PC I shall love you all the same.

    Thanks

    Yeah, I've seen a few thumb drives like that, where the info can't be erased. Never found a solution.

              That is just like iPods and many other storage devices, it's like they have partitioned the drive into two. One that you can access, and other that you cannot.
              I don't know of a solution sorry.

                    "I can type" clearly you can't.

                        My iPod Touch doesn't even use close to that amount. 616MB for apps, 55GB for music, 225MB for other...

                              you can stop rubbing it in any time now Artist....

                              lol

                              and 1 method requires a microwave.
                              Another requires a large, rare earth magnet.
                              The third requires fireworks/bottle rockets.
