This paper describes an experiment that evaluates the application usability concerning of two types of feedback, they are anthropomorphic and non-anthropomorphic. The aim of this research is to examine whether such approaches are effective or liked by the user. With regards to this, a tutorial prototype application specifically in learning a photography technique developed as a model for this experiment. An interface with video presentation is the anthropomorphic feedback and plain text presentation is the non-anthropomorphic feedback. The same procedure applied to both feedbacks. Statistical analysis results from an experimental study with 30 novice photographers revealed that anthropomorphic user interface feedback was effective and preferred by the users. At the end, this research will serve the focus group (photographer) on the best method effected them in learning a photography's technique as well as will serve the web or application developer an idea of guideline when developing a technical application.
