Need revising, all around

"Easy Flash Tutorial 05" by Danishx83 is a semi-interactive flash tutorial that targets beginning animators that are trying to teach themselfs how to animate on Macromedia Flash MX. The fifth installment in the series by the author covers the "insert" menu and gives an insight of every option in the menu. Danishx83 makes an effort to explain everything in detail.

I have found some issues trying to enjoy the tutorial. First the Flash Window image. I suggest the author consider changing the image he used for the Flash Window for something with better resolution as it's hard to understand even in expanded view. Second, add more images. I consider the tutorial needs more example images of the different options; say, when I click on layer what happens on the window I am working? What is affected and such could be easily explain with a couple of images. Third, explain a little more. I have found that you don't give enough info on the terms you use. Explainning the meaning of frame and scene among others could make the person reading the tutorial learn more fluently. I recommend adding a glossary of terms to solve this.

Last note; it's a good tutorial I am sure that when the author works through the issues it would be a better experience. Also, please consider grammar revising there are some obviuos grammar mistakes.
