Software tutorials based on pictures
« on: January 09, 2007, 11:48:22 PM »
In Pictures is a clever (old?) idea of offering software tutorials in pictures. They have OpenOffice 2, Microsoft Office 2003, and Dreamweaver tutorials up now, and more coming soon.

One main negative of the site is the amount of clicks to get through a tutorial.  Its so slow just to get any information.  The concept is OK but the execution is poor.

How about a bookmarkable slide-show where the user can stop, play or speed up/down the 'flipping' of pictures.  This way I can watch at my pace, stop and bookmark in the middle, and not feel like I'm playing a video game by scrolling and clicking a 100x.

Why are the screenshots in grayscale? It's not like they have to save ink from the printers. . .
