Love the video Tutorials .
Very Very helpful, I am a visual person and prefer learning new programs this way.
Having Dyslexia, makes reading written tutorials more time consuming and difficult ( very discouraging).
I am sure there are others with similar issues.

Looking forward to seeing more.

Maybe a simple navigating around getting started with the Smart Photo Editor or how to use your program for beginners.
I would think that would be a big help for someone considering purchasing your product.
( may even help with increasing sales) :D
I had to go on your forum to find out how to get back to the original start window when first opened.

Thank you

Hi Ernestine,

Which version of Adobe Flash are you using? The videos are hosted at vimeo. Can you normally view their videos without any trouble?

In order to learn from existing effects I'll would like to see the sequences used to get to the results in Effect Editor ?
Is there any tool that show the nodes used between "effect input" and "effect output" ?

Regards
Patrick

I think this is what you mean.

Open your original image.
Apply an effect as normal. Press OK to accept it.
You will now have your image top left and the effect applied next to it.
Right Mouse Click over the effect at top right.
You will see an option called Manual Edit. Select this.
You will now see the structure of the effect to either edit yourself or learn from.

My only problem is I can't figure out how to close the edit screen!

Richard
