Hello and welcome to Instructables!  

If you're having trouble starting your first Instructable, this is the right place for you. We'll be going over how to create 3 different types of Instructables: photo instructables, step-by-steps, and video instructables. We will also be going over how to change your profile image and how to add photos to your image library.

Before we start, make sure you've already made an account!
Click here or the link below if you don't know how or if you'd like to know how to make an account.

Step 1: Getting Started

To create an Instructable, hover over the "Create" tab at the top of the page. You then have the option to pick one of three:

PHOTOS - Less than 10 photos + a description.

What you made, how you made it, why you made it.

STEP-BY-STEP - Minimum: An intro + 3 steps.

Photos & descriptions are needed in each step. If your project doesn't meet those requirements, make a photo Instructable.

VIDEO - Your video + a description.

What you made, how you made it, why you made it, and a breakdown of the steps.



CONTESTS: If you are going to start a contest, create it as a guide or a forum topic. Manage it yourself and provide it with prizes. Please don't create it as an Instructable!
