Create Animated Rollovers with jQuery and Dreamweaver

with Chris Converse

Video: Using the exercise files

When you download the exercise files there is going to four folders contained inside that Zip. First is the Art Templates folder which contains the source Photoshop files for creating the filmstrip versions of the thumbnail graphics. Filmstrip Thumbnails contains the exported JPEGs in case you don't want to go through the process of saving out the Photoshop files. Final Project, we took a look at in the introduction video and then lastly is the Previous Final Files. These are all of the files that we created in an earlier course called Creating a Video Gallery. And so in the course, we're going to start from that previous project in order to get a starting point for creating our animated rollovers in jQuery.
