picture gallery?

It seems to me that it could be very helpful for component_help to include a gallery of images showing what the different modifications can look like. Sometimes I really have no good idea of the effect some modification makes (and I note many people include drawings in describing their problem or what they'd like done). Most of the time that's because the person who originally posted the modification no longer uses it in their page, or created it for someone else and that requires digging through the thread to find out who, and sometimes THAT person no longer uses it, etc.

Could also be useful for the notes on modifying layers etc. I know that creating the styles versus layers is very confusing because there's one point where you create a style and it gives you an error that the style doesn't exist when you create it, but if you go back and refresh all is well. That kind of thing could be helped with screenshots too.

So I wondered if it would be useful for the tutorials here to link to screenshots stored in the component help gallery?

Since I'm suggesting something that would take some work, I hereby volunteer to do this, as much as I can within the purview of permissions, etc that exist here. I can collect screen shots, make a list of which would go to where, or actually do the edits to add to component help's gallery and add links within the tutorials, whatever.

But I think it could be really helpful!

Just a thought. Feel free to shoot it down or whatever...
