I'm creating a wizard for importing files as part of my desktop application. This isn't the main focus of the application, but it is an important feature. When a file gets imported, depending on the format of the file (image, text, audio), the wizard will auto-detect the format type and offer different choices based on the format.
Audio and text will only offer two to three different choices, but images have a wide range of possible import uses. Currently, I can think of 11 different uses for images that I plan to have the wizard support.
Here's the page in content to the unchanging elements of the wizard, which adds a bit more visual-clutter:
It feels cluttered to me. Is there a cleaner way to present the branching wizard paths to the user? Once a path is chosen, the user will be brought to one, two, or at the very most three pages, each with simple clear places to fill in some parameters for that specific import path.
It's just this one page that seems cluttered. Any suggestions for improving it? Additionally, since Text and Audio imports will present a similar page, but with only two or three command links, if any, any change to the Wizard should be as usable with just two possibilities as with twelve.
Thankfully, this is the worst page (by far) in terms of clutter for the wizard, so if you don't think it's too cluttered, let me know.
