If you are a Premium member to the lynda .com online training library or if you are watching these movies on a disk, you have access to the exercise files. Once you have located the exercise files folder, go ahead and double-click it to open it up and here you will discover that we have all of the files that we are going to work on in this course and they are organized into folders based on the different chapters. To start working on the images, just open up that folder for that chapter. You also may want to work with Adobe Bridge.
By working with Adobe Bridge, you can then point that to the exercise files folder and then you can select the chapter that you want to work with and also the image that we are working on in a particular movie. If you don't have access to the exercise files, no big deal. You can always simply follow along, or of course, you can always work on your own images. All right, let's begin.
