I used to be a kick-ass Web production guy, but that was when Bill Clinton was president, Michael Richards was employable, and DeBabelizer walked the land. Now I feel behind the times relative to production best practices, so as always if you have feedback about what’s useful & what’s not, I’m all ears.

  1. The sprite stuff looks great for desktop stuff but for mobile you may want to do it manually in Photoshop. Theses devices are memory constrained and the physical size of the sprite sheet is really important even empty pixels are dealt with and take up memory. It’s not just about how many Kb the file takes up on disk it’s also the L x W x 4(RGBA) beware those empty pixels in mobile work.
