For content-heavy websites, it sometimes makes sense to create a "content builder" in Craft by using matrix fields to define a number of blocks that your client can use to publish content. This is really powerful but also leads to a confusing publishing experience.
On big sites, you might have 10s of different blocks in a particular matrix field. When your client goes to publish they'll see a huge dropdown:
There are a number of existing plugins like Spoon and Matrix Mate that help deal with this but as the number of matrix field blocks grows, even with descriptive block titles it can be tricky to figure out what a block will look like.
Craft Matrix Field Preview solves this by allowing you to upload screenshots of the rendered blocks so that you client can see at-a-glance what the content they are about to publish will look like.
When they publish new content, instead of using the native dropdown shown above, they'll get an overlay modal with examples:
