Default how to make a tutorial?

hey guys, a lot of people are asking me to make a tute for my ribbon flowers. I've never made a tute before. Can you give me some tips how to make a pdf tute? how to copyright? and important things I shouldn't do when making a tute? etc... Thank you!
Dilki

Make sure the program you are working in will save as or convert to pdf.

Spend the time to take really good photos.

Just go through as if you are talking someone through it, catching details or little snags someone might run into.

Have someone who's never made a bow try them out!

Good luck!!

Don't use statements like: This is so easy!

It might be "easy" for you, but very frustrating for a newbie to get down. LOL
----

Also don't assume people know what you mean by terms of the trade. You can use the term with a short explanation to help.

ie Heat seal the end. (If there's no picture or description of what that means or how to do it, newbies will stop right there or skip over it.)

Best of luck!

Some tuts will give you all the information to make something, but it is the long/complicated way. If someone is paying for the tut, it is always nice to be told one or two tricks to cut down time or leg work.

I also second the really good pics. Nothing is worse than not being able to see what someone is trying to show you because of poor lighting or low resolution pics.

Sorry, I just had to write that. Wouldn't it be comical if someone did
It's like giving someone a thanks you card for the thank you card they sent them lol

now being serious. I love tutorial with a lot of pictures. Really close up, clear pictures. Almost so clear that reading the description is optional (can you tell I'm a visual learner?)
