We're compiling guides for our website on how to install our software on multiple platforms (WinXP/Vista/7/8,OSX,Linux,Android,iOS). The most common implementation appears to be a series of screenshots demonstrating each step with a sentence accompanying each screenshot. Each guide (one for each platform) will have 8-15 steps.
Page speed is critical and so being able to use lazy loading is essential however I believe this is possible in both instances.
Which would be a better UX in your opinion? Are there any other patterns than we may have missed? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
