This tutorial does not work and is very badly laid out. There is insufficent details and you leap from section to section without any expalanation of how you got there. A bad tutorial is worse than no tutorial. Please go away and look at what you have built from the eyes of someone who is not a developer.
while I personally agree that the tutorial´s layout could be better and some more explanation could help improve the understanding, just let me add my 2 cts:
1. writing *good* tutorials is pretty hard, and learning how to get there does take some time and experience -- plus helpful response from others, which Waleed rarely gets at least in these forums.
2. let´s not forget that Waleed is not a native english speaker/writer, what makes it extra hard to get one´s stuff across to a mostly native english audience which seems to expect perfection -- that´s something I know myself, and it has admittedly taken me some time to understand that this requires some extra care.
3. "This tutorial does not work"
well, if this statement were addressing one of my tutorials, I would have to ask you to provide some more details like what exactly doesn´t work -- the fact that something doesn´t work, may have many reasons, and this statement alone is way to too blurry to be helpful.
4. "A bad tutorial is worse than no tutorial".
Maybe you´re right, but Waleed is currently the only regular ADDT user who *does that*, and this deserves some acknowledgement.
5. "Please go away"
a little harsh, don´t you think ? I´d rather prefer him to *continue* contributing tutorials, and I´d prefer others to help him improve his writing without dispiriting him.
6. "look at what you have built from the eyes of someone who is not a developer".
To my experience there´s one particular pitfall which any tutorial writer will always stumble across -- the question "who am I writing for ?". There´s no easy answer to that, and no matter what you´re writing or how, you always risk to fail addressing the requirements of one part of your audience.

Thank you, Waleed; I look forward to completing your tutorial!
Thanks for all of your great work on these tutorials. I've learned quite a bit more about ADDT from going thru these. Please keep them coming.
I hope you are alright.
thanks for your comments and giving me the attension to improve my tutorials looking "layout".
but i`ll tell you what the main issue i consentrate on while mading my tutorial is not the looking or the layout of the end application, but the main issue is how to start building the application from 0 to have working application.
This tutorial does not work
I tried it local and on the internet and it works very fine... also there is more than one user created and uploaded his own photo album, with easy steps.
any way i`ll try to make my tutorials more suitable, thank you again, and I`ll tell you what "i do my best" to reach that limit.
thanks again and i hope you are not so angry from me that much...
I'll definitely check it out, I've been immersed in ADDT on a dev project for two months, when I'm done, I plan to write some tutorials as well to help others where I personally have struggled. Cheers.
I downloaded the user_album.rar, it appears to only contains images and thumbnails, no script?
well am i expect some competition? it will good to make it as a competition this will help everyone of us to showup his skills and what he get in his pag,
also the benifits will gain to other users of ADDT's Tools.
actually Adobe premit me to share the *includes* folder as a copyrights reserved, i am sorry for that.
but if you have your "includes" folder everything will work very fine...
