If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you've purchased a DVD of this course, you have access to the Exercise Files that I'll be using to demonstrate the lessons throughout the course. If you do have the Exercise Files, I strongly suggest that you put the entire Exercise Files folder on your desktop as I've done right here. If you look inside the Exercise Files folder, you will see that the exercise files are organized by chapter and inside each chapter folder are sub-folders, one for each movie in the chapter and then inside each movie folder are the individual files that I will be using for that lesson.
I suggest that you open your files into Elements 8 by using Adobe Bridge CS4 as I will show you how to do in a movie during the course. Adobe Bridge CS4 is a file viewing and organizing program that comes with Elements 8 and that makes it easier to view and open files. Now if you're not a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, if instead you are monthly or an annual non-premium subscriber to the training library, you don't have access to these particular exercise files.
But I don't think you'll have any problem following along with the course and using your own photos or other image files to work through the lessons with me.
