Adobe uses a hotspot-fashioned element to introduce its users through ultra-short copy and gifs. Each tool in the editor screen prompts a tooltip that explains the tool very briefly and clearly.
✅ Less friction - Because the tools aren’t introduced through a tiring walkthrough or modal, users are naturally prone to feeling less friction.
✅ Onboarding blended into everyday use - Because the tooltips appear every time the users hover over the tools, they are reminded every time about the use case, which can help make a difference during the early stages of onboarding.
✅ Visual - The visuals in the form of gifs help make the tooltips more digestible and the onboarding smoother.
