Needs more

So, while you do technically teach people things about flash, you seriously need to add more to it before you submit. I don't like the layout you use (it makes it hard to see any particular thing when it's just tiny screenshots), but I do think you have potential.

You do explain what you teach well, each of the menu options was well explained. You don't, however, go beyond that. You don't show people how to tween, or how to use simple actionscript, you don't even explain the art tools.

You need to think about what you want to teach people with your tut. Do you want them to learn art? Game making? Buttons? Find something that people will be able to have a produced project at the end of, and focus on that.

I'm sorry if this review seems a little harsh, as I said, you have potential, but you just need to work at your layout, and actually teach people how to USE flash. Keep working at it though and it could get there, good luck.

Thanks a lot for reviews from all of you, since yours is the most detailed that's why I am answering this one,
1. I thought of sequence and that's why started from top left of the screen.
2. These are just the introduction of the words that are written there, what they actually do, is far away for the kind of audience i have in mind.
3. Yes in next I will try to improve the readability.
4. The graphics and beauty of tutorial, well I thought of it but came to a point that if i get into that, than I might not even be able to post a single tutorial.


in your further on ones you sholld teach how to make diferent things Eg buttons games (done in parts) and simple animations this series seems good so far

Not alot that will help me but...

This may help someone. There are things we take for granted as a "duh" effect of "how could anyone not know that". Having been in customer service years back I came to realize there are people who do not grasp even the most basic concepts of computer use. For these people and really new people to flash this could be helpful. Keep up the work, improve your presentation, and since you started at such a basic level make sure your future tutorials follow a logical progression.


I see you tried to put alot of effort in, so im not gonna blam it.
You Have potential, so keep trying! :D
