Jimbo

P.S. Here is a much snazzier one I made before the video!

The above picture took all of 3 minutes to do because I didn't have to worry about video recording and typing in sticky notes. Notice the title is also in the picture. Nice, If I say so myself.

I certainly ain't no artist, no internet whizz kid, no graphic designer or the like...So what I am trying to impress upon you is that even an idiot like me can do this.

Just think what you could do if you were a bit more artistic and experienced than I am.


What do you think? Please go ahead and comment and Like...

How many trainings per day is one permitted to upload?

I got a few I can think of from the top of my head.

Perhaps readers here can suggest a tutorial for me to do, and I will do it (if I know how to!!!)

Hi,
Its amazing, I enjoyed watching it.
Great idea to open all the tabs at the beginning then it's allot faster to go through all of them in no time.
And taking us through to where the image is added on the website - brilliant.
Thank you
Blessings in abundance

just hoping I haven't "plagiarised" a similar tutorial that I haven't seen!

Mostly I think if you haven't seen it, you can't be held responsible for copying it - everybody does things in their own unique way.
The first YouTube video I put up was about blow drying curly hair with a diffuser (don't search for it, I removed it), but I never thought of searching for other youtube videos on the same subject.
As awesome as YouTube is, they said I might also like "these Youtube videos" and they threw up a list of videos on blow drying curly hair with a diffuser. I never saw any of them and never even realized there are videos about it online.
I didn't remove it because of plagiarism, the only reason I removed it was because when I put up a song I wrote I got allot of ugly remarks and then it started moving over to the other videos I put up, so I deleted everything.

Moral of the story - there will always be someone who had almost the same idea as you, but presented it in a completely different way and sometimes using different tools to get the same job done.
Sorry for the long comment.
Blessings in abundance

That should be very useful for people.

I'm a big fan of canva. A lot easier for featured images than messing about with Photoshop - which is what I used to do.
