I have been using LaTeX since 1987 or thereabouts and have been on the LaTeX3 team since before we released LaTeX2e. I'm currently somewhat inactive in the LaTeX project but show up in related fields, I'm an editor of the MathML spec for example.

I am employed by NAG ltd, but any opinions expressed here are personal.

comment Produce the GMail and Google Logo? Perhaps a TeXiy version of it?
what do you mean by texified? same image generated by tex, or the word TeX in a similar style?

there is the small matter of that TM symbol....

comment Pagestyle plain. No page number on last page of chapter
The class redefines \cleardoublepage so that if it needs to make an empty page to get the next chapter open on the right it uses the blank page style rather than the default one. that seems to be a major aim of the class but \makeatletter\let\ps@blank\ps@plain\makeatother probably changes it.

comment Placing Image within double column text without resizing
That's the same as my answer except it has a left aligned caption which the OP said in comments did not want.

comment Placing Image within double column text without resizing
you can edit the question rather than adding code in comments (but it's not very useful unless it is a complete document that demonstrates the problem)

@A.Ellett perhaps. I'd align with the quote as that seems more logical (and easiest to implement:-)

why is 1. 2. 3. aligned with the open quote in 3.7 but indented under the n of "Ignore in 3.6?

comment Placing Image within double column text without resizing
Perhaps you did something wrong, if you show what you did someone could help. Every question should have a small example document from \documentclass to \end{docuemnt} that demonstrates the problem. You can use \usepackage[demo]{graphicx} so we don't need your actual image.

comment Write a text into an image
@envy_intelligence I just meant change the 5mmto move up or down and the -10mm to move left or right. You can use any units you like and unless you are doing automated printing of thousands of these things I'd just adjust "by eye" looking at the final output.

comment Change the height of minipage in the figure environment?
also don't use both width and height or you will distort the figure, and did you intend ` height=.8\linewidth` ie setting the height of the image based on the available width?
