I'm in the middle of using Photoshop and select the wand tool, and suddenly a tutorial video pops up on top of Photoshop while I'm using it, as if I haven't been using the wand tool for years.

You say: "The video was showing you a new feature!" I don't know what it was saying, because I angrily closed the video without looking at it. Why? I was *in the middle of using photoshop*, not watching videos. I had something to get done, and this got in the way. It's a completely useless way to try to tell users anything, because you're shoving it in their face as they're trying to do something else.

I hope this isn't a sign of what the future holds for Photoshop. Get rid of this intrusive, distracting nonsense.
