burninate [font-matching]

Merge [presentation] with [presentation-design]

There is a difference. One is about designing presentations; the other about presenting designs... There is certainly overlap but it is an important distinction. It is, e.g., the difference between ...

Merge [photo-editing] and [image-editing]

To be pedantic: every photo is an image, but not every image is a photo. As long as they are correctly applied, I do see a use for both of these tags. There are certainly techniques that only (or ...

Should we add the tag "File Conversion"?

Makes sense to me. Go ahead, if the tag turns out not to work or have way too little questions, we can always burninate it later.

Do people read Tags before the question body?

Synonymize [web-applications] with [website-design]

I think the two serve different functions though web-applications doesn't appear to be getting used properly very often. Things like Pixlr would be a web-application. Webflow would be another web-...

Is there any use to the [images] tag?

I agree with @Dom. (see it happens) The image is similar to resolution or color or any of a dozen others. It's not a great tag in itself, but it does narrow a question down into a specific sub-...

Is there any use to the [images] tag?

Merge suggestion: [layout] and [page-layout]

Are [information-graphics], [data-visualization], and [information-design] all necessary?

First off, please be nice. Second, remember that anyone and their sibling can make a new tag by just including it into the tags with their question. We mods can merge tags, so that anyone who wants ...

Merge [photo-editing] and [image-editing]

Should we burninate [extracting]?

The "or" doesn't make any sense to me. Theres absolutely no reason at all to have a tag with two completely unrelated meanings. There are no not many questions using the tag for the second "data-...

Burninate [scale]

I think these are two different tags to a degree. scaling refers more to changing the dimensions of an object/shape/etc. Being a verb it is different than the noun. Where as scale could mean drawing ...
