I love the use of the images, and how the information provided with the images is concise and to the point. I just have a hard time seeing what the arrows are pointing to. I think it would help if you screen shot a specific part of the webpage you want, so the reader can see it better. Great job!!
Hey guys, great instructable! Really helpful. I'm just wondering about pages 7 and 8 -each page ends with a colon, and underneath I expected to find an icon (page 7) and a logo (page 8). Are we supposed to go to the next page to view them or are the images yet to be added? Was just a bit confusing. Otherwise great job, thanks!
