    It's better to write I would rather than I'd but if you think you wont fit necessary content into PS then its better to just shorten it
    thats just my opinion tho

    Isn't 'I'd' a shortened version of 'I would' anyway?

    If you get really really stuck on characters, then do. If not, always use the full form.
    You ought to be writing with the full form. Get space elsewhere. Would it be appropriate to leave a word out just because you were running short on space?
