Video: Using the exercise files

If you're a Premium Member of the lynda.com online training library, or if you're watching this tutorial on DVD-ROM, you have access to all the exercise files used throughout this title. In fact, here they are on my Desktop. I'll open this up, and you can see right in here there is an Assets folder that contains all the assets. There is Chapter folders as well, so you can always jump in here. Start with these Begin files, but really, here's this Final folder for each one, you can also take those and use them, and there's even a FinalWebsite folder as well.

Using the exercise files

If you're a Premium Member of the lynda.com online training library, or if you're watching this tutorial on DVD-ROM, you have access to all the exercise files used throughout this title. In fact, here they are on my Desktop. I'll open this up, and you can see right in here there is an Assets folder that contains all the assets. There is Chapter folders as well, so you can always jump in here. Start with these Begin files, but really, here's this Final folder for each one, you can also take those and use them, and there's even a FinalWebsite folder as well.

So feel free to jump in here, you can change all the graphics, call it your own, do whatever you want if you have access to them. Now, if you are a monthly member or an annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to these exercise files, but can easily follow along from scratch with your own assets, which is really going to be what you are going to want in the end anyways. So let's go ahead and jump right in to creating our very first website in Dreamweaver CS6.
