comment Regarding mainframe - sort card
I'm strongly against downvoting an answer because you don't like the question. Downvote the answer because it is incorrect or poorly written, but not because you don't like the question. Not everyone understands or agrees on what is a "good question" or "bad question", and P.SE's definition of such has changed over the years too. It is a very poor habit to get into. Personally, I don't even think that questions asking "Can someone explain the use of X keyword (or line of code) in Y code snippet" are bad questions either. I've learned a lot from such questions, and they can be very educational

comment How are dynamic images programmed?
No experience here, but my thoughts are it is either A) multiple versions of each "component" of the image, which then assembles them into one combined image and presents to the user, B) a photo for every single variation, or C) an image with a color overlay, like this. I would personally try to go for A. B is too much maintenance and C isn't really accurate. A combination of A and C is probably used there, as if you hover over some of the gems they are 100% identical except for color, which is not the case in nature.

comment Is separating design from implementation a net win?
You need the design to know how to implement, just as you need to know implementation restrictions to know how to design. So there should definitely be some overlap in communication there. As far as actual implementation goes though, write your code in a way that makes sense from the technical perspective, not that makes sense from the design perspective. UI design can change, and this makes it easy to update just the UI, or vice versa.
