I've been working for what seems like a century on getting some on-line tutorials up and running on my website.  I have finally learned enough and have a FREE test tutorial up and running.  It does require that you register for my website to access the tutorial, but there is no charge.  Just click on the "free tutorials" button to get started. 

I thought that since spring is finally here and lots of artists, including myself, are making bunnies, I should put my Wired Ears Tutorial on first.  I hope that you all will take the time to go through the tutorial.  Please send me your comments.  This is our test and we need to know if you encounter any problems.

What a great way to deliver tutorials Alison! bear_thumb

The only thing I can offer as constructive criticism is is that I found the pages turned a little too quickly for the viewer to read through comfortably.

You clicked the arrow to automatically flip the pages.  There is a pause button if you need more time.  Or, you can click the arrow just one to the right of center to flip the pages manually.  I hope users can figure out the buttons.  I can just picture frantic bear makers trying to finish the step before the page automatically turns.   bear_grin   I didn't want to do the tutorials as a down loadable pdf. and found this plug in that works with Joomla which is what I use for my website.  I already have some ideas to make it more readable.  No fancy fonts in the next tutorial and larger pictures.  But, I made it through the first one!

Hi Alison, bear_flower

Oooh, what a lovely website you have, and thank you for popping on the free tutorial, that was very kind of you.  :hug:

I must have been on your site while you were writing your last post here.  I registered on your site and I found the tutorial absolutely fine when I soon realised about using the centre "button" to start and pause the frames so was able to use it with no problem.  Very nicely done I think so a big pat on the back for you Alison! :clap:  :hug:

Many thanks once again for your kindness!

Take care.

Thank you, so much easier than the only other time I tried with a bunny pattern that used pipecleaners, that was messy!  I worked out the pause button after a couple of pages, I just had to remember to pause each time otherwise I've be halfway down and reading something else entirely lol

Hi Alison,

Love the tutorials, they are well written and easy to understand. One thing though...on the wired ears one right after step 11 I find step 5 of the fairy wing tutorial.

Thanks for the heads up!  I was wondering where step five went.  I just clicked the wrong book to upload that page to.
