I couldn't agree more with other comments regarding how it is so easy to
follow the step. The demonstration is easy to understand and follow. The
explanation is clear, detail, informative... I have a language barrier,
yet, I have no problem understanding the tutorial. Also, I do appreciate
the demeanor and the tenure of the person who do the tutorial, he is very
knowledgeable, yet, not by any mean arrogant or conceited. Thank you for
doing this tutorial.

Author Cedy B (1 month)
What I liked about this tutorial was the clarity and the time to explain.
Most tutorials especially for beginners assume that the student has a basic
knowledge and thus the student is lost almost immediately. I liked this
tutorial because it only assumed one thing and that was when almost at the
end, the 'Delete Key' was mentioned. I know this may seen picky but for a
total beginner like myself this did give me a problem. Now I know how to
delete by checking elsewhere my problem was solved.
I only add this comment because I used to teach the those with learning
difficulties and with them you don't assume anything with the first lesson.
I truly hope you don't mind me mentioning this.

Author KaiaMar (5 months)

I only get a white or a black background or another color. I don't get a
transparent background. Is there something I missed? I don't seem to get a
transparent background whatever I try.
