  • Video tutorials are frustrating as all-get-out. I know it’s probably harder to type the instructions out, but it’s SO frustrating to watch these videos.

    You can’t skim the information to find out if you already know what they will say. You can’t skip over what you already know and get to the one juicy tip you didn’t.

    You can’t watch them on your home computer with no speakers. Or on the office computer where you would annoy your non-design coworkers.

  • Sorry Melody, it’s just the way that I prefer to post them. I try to keep the tutorials brief to allow for skimming.

    I am getting frustated with video tutorials also. They are getting more and more and aldo I can read in English is too dificult to follow the tutorial with sound. It is also dificult to follow the video in a small screen and I can´t have a wider screen.

  • I liked the videos, though I did skip to the relevant parts for me.
