To begin our project, let's create a folder on the desktop. We'll name this myWebsite. I'm going to open this up and put it over here on the side. Now, with our folder created, let's come back to the exercise files. Let's go into folder 1. Let's grab the CSS folder and the HTML file. Let's drag a copy of these into that folder we just created. Now, as I mentioned earlier, most of the content in these files is empty. I just wanted to make sure that we all had a properly formatted HTML and CSS file to work from.
Inside of our myWebsite folder, let's create another folder, called images. I'm going to open this up. Let's come back to our exercise files. Let's close up folder 1 and let's go into folder 2, Skip Photoshop. Let's open up Images to add, and let's come in here and select all of these individual graphics, and let's drag a copy of these into the images directory. So these will give us a series of images that we can start from. And later on, if you want to skip the Photoshop chapter, you can just skip that and go right back to the HTML and CSS.
But if you want to follow along in the Photoshop chapter, we'll actually customize some of these graphics based on the images you want to change inside of Photoshop. So once all of these files are in place, close up my exercise files. Now on the desktop we have our myWebsite folder, we have the CSS folder and then an index.html file. Now in the next chapter we're going to talk specifically about how to set up Dreamweaver to follow along in this course. So if you're not going to be using Dreamweaver as your authoring tool, you can skip ahead to chapter two and continue on.
