    Ok so yesterday I put together this hub. Looking at it I can tell something is wrong, but I can not figure out what! Please tell me what I did wrong! Is it too short? Is there too many pictures for such a short recipe?

      The biggest thing is we are missing the finished product. If the bottom picture is the finished product, you will want it at the top. People want to see what the finished product looks like right away, so they know if they want to even attempt the recipe.

      I like when people have it as a full view photo at the top, rather than at the side.

      Also, you need to source your photos, and write a brief description underneath them. Just put your name as the source's name.

      I also think your brief description at the bottom, should go at the top, right below the final product. Then at the end, you can give additional information, such as where the recipe originated, or the benefits of eating honey, or just a closing.

      I do not think there are too many pictures. You might want to separate the sections by adding dividers or white space.
      Also I was interested in your comment about using homemade bread crumbs. You might want  to add how you make yours. Do you just crush them, add garlic, bake them or whatever? I know you added salt and pepper but more information helps a new cook.
      I hope this helps. I love to cook and publish recipes. Now you have me in the mood to cook. laugh

    Thanks I went back in and added a section explaining how I make my bread crumbs.  Are you saying that the pictures need spaces between them or the capsules? Thanks for your advice! I cook all the time but had never thought of doing anything with my recipes... until now.

    Spaces between the capsules would help the reader separate the steps. I had never published my recipes either until recently. Now I find it so much fun that I take photos of everything I cook. I am working on one right now actually. I told you I got inspired by your Hub.

      I'm still not good at taking pictures of food, but I guess I will get some practice. Thanks again for your help!
