I am barely a gifted amateur when it comes to this stuff. I have been seeing tools and terms frequently that I am not familiar with.
As a general request I would like if we include pictures wherever possible. It would certainly help me ( and as a result other beginners). I haven't seen many pictures while reading the post here. I would just add them myself but I have always been wary of editing other answers, except for grammar and typos. Like I said, I am sometimes not sure and just adding a random image myself might not align with the OP or answers view.
I know if would save people stepping out of the site for Google images. If we can get into a habit I think it would improve the site overall. Personally I think it would be more visually appealing.
As far as making this a request, instead of just a statement, we could have a blurb about this on the about for this site.
