Nice tutorial

I love the versatility of symbols in Illustrator. They really do save time in similar cases like this.

I'm curious about what screenshot application you use to create your step-by-step screens. I'm a terrible video tut guy (can't stand listening to myself) and like to do some simple step-by-step tuts like this.

I use Snapz for screenshots...

...but I manipulate the hell out of them in Photoshop: cleaning up edges, removing void space, adding graphical cursors. It's a standard I learned working on Deke's One-on-One books.

Thanks Colleen!
