If you have a monthly or annual premium subscription to the Lynda.com library, you have access to the same example files used by the instructors in the courses you watch. Allowing you to follow along doing exactly what the instructor is doing with photos, videos, audio files, business documents, and so on. The files are provided in the zip compression format. To download the files associated with the course you're watching, make sure you're logged in, and then simply click the exercise files button at the top of the course's page. In the window that opens, click the zip file. You may also want to not the size of the files you're downloading.
If you're using Windows you may be asked whether you want to save or run the file you're downloading. Be sure to click Save to save the zip file to your computer. Mac OS 10 has the built-in ability to unpack zip files, and most Windows PCs have pre-installed software for unpacking zip files as well. Once the exercise files have downloaded to your computer, we recommend placing them on your desktop, if you haven't done so already, for easy access. If you're a Mac user, simply double click the compressed file to unpack it. Similarly, if you're on Windows, right click on the compressed file, and choose, extract all. Again, I'll choose to save this to my desktop, and click, extract.
Once the exercise files have been expanded, you can delete the zip file or keep it as a clean back-up copy of the files you're working on. The instructor of the course you're watching will explain how to use the files you've downloaded.
