Here is how I would have liked to read the instructions:
How to enter: (put this at the top of the page where work is done.)
Text field has the same orientation as the image, therefore start by looking at the top left of the image and enter the data line-wise from left to right.
Enter a bit by typing "1" for a dotted spotted and "0" for a blank spot.
If you are not 100% sure, type "H" instead of "1" or "L" instead of "0".
If you have no clue, type "?".
The two 8-bit fields per line are to be separated by a space character.
After the first 8 lines, insert an empty line or type "GUTTER". Do this only once per image.
I think that the example with the colored circles is totally misleading, just show a sample image + corresponding text field and put the png right on the page instead of making users click.
At the bottom of the page, below Save:
Put a note what will happen next: namely that your entry and name will likely disappear and be replaced by a new todo.
Mention that at the end of the project, credit will be given - this is what people are interested in.
Also put a note on the top of the "working on" page that says: "If you are serious about this, enter your name and save as WIP now."
