Include screenshots in tutorials?

Post by kevinkabatra » Fri Sep 18, 2015 6:22 pm

Some tutorials includes images, which can certainly help some audiences. Should we include screenshots were applicable inside the tutorials? And if so, is there a tutorial on how to do this?

Warm Regards,

Why wouldn't you want to include screenshots in your tutorial? A lot of people are visual. Following directions is easy, but when there is a lot on the screen, it does help to be able to look at a screenshot to relate what the instructor is trying to convey.

In regards to how to create screenshots, just google it. Use the "prntsc" feature, crop as needed and pasted it in the tutorial. [Joomla's Vulnerable Extension List]
