If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you are watching this tutorial on disk, you have access to the exercise files used throughout the training title. You can find them on your Desktop in an Exercise Files folder. Inside that folder will be another folder for each chapter in the training title. All the files for each chapter are contained within that particular folder. To follow along, just open up the chapter that you are currently working on and find the file associated with the video that you are currently watching. So, for instance, if you are watching the Auto Select Layer movie, we are working with the Sisters.psd file in that video. So we'd just open up that file and you are ready to follow along.
If you are a monthly or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files but you can follow along from scratch or use your own assets. Let's get started.
