yes, that’s clear from the title of the thread.
DxO’s website currently presents 82 tutorials under the “DxO PhotoLab” tab.
Many of these tutorials carry “OpticsPro” in their name, which means that they are either outdated or general enough to be kept - even under an older product name. A few tutorials are webinars, others are reading material etc. the whole thing feels like a box of legos scattered in the room…
There are several ways to present information
- Reference, explaining what there is and what it does - basically what’s in the user guide
→ add links to the online guide (or the pdf) that point to specialised tutorials…
- Use cases, explaining which tool to use, why to use it and how (my image is flat and noisy…)
Often, there is more than one way, so it might be useful to also show alternatives
- Level of detail (surface tutorials vs. in-depth tutorials)
- Beginner, intermediate, advanced
- Reading vs. Video
- Structured presentation vs nonchalant chatting vs length
- Key technologies vs. working with them
The sheer number of tutorials offered dictates a comprehensive directory with filters/switches for language, length, type, content, depth etc. Adding such a directory is possibly the easiest first step for better accessibility of the content. Define characteristics, assign to available tutorials.
Create a matrix (this is an example, a different structure might fit our needs better)
How to use:
- select language from dropdown
- clicking on a row title creates a list of relevant content from where the user selects a tutorial
→ e.g. Tutorials for new users about general/special etc. features
- clicking on a column title creates a list of relevant content from where the user selects a tutorial
→ e.g. Tutorials about Colour for new/intermediate/advanced users
- clicking on a bubble opens the tutorial directly
