    The tutorials are great. However for a person wanting to lean at 65 years old and fading eyes you need to use a larger cursor with captions and slightly slower or high lighting the item. When bouncing from one to another absorption time is lost trying to remember the last. Anyway that is not to criticize and do enjoy watching them. Best way to learn. Repeat watching. I am still looking for the cut out to place on a background to use on eBay and enhance family photos.
