- If you're a premium subscriber to the Lynda.com online training library, you'll have access to the exercise files associated with this course. And you can download those to your computer as I've done here, and drop them onto my desktop. Once you've got them, all you'll need to do is to expand the ZIP. So, I'm just double-clicking on that, like so, to expand it. And then, copy those across to your Creative Cloud folder. So there's a couple of different ways you can do that. The experience on Windows is similar to what I'm going to show you here, apart from the Creative Cloud app is normally pinned to the taskbar on your screen, or easy to find via the Windows menu.
So if I just come up to the Creative Cloud app which runs inside the menu bar on my Mac, you'll see that if I go to Assets from the categories along the top, I've got two choices. I can either open my local folder or view the files on the web. So if I go to Open Folder this will open up my Creative Cloud files, like so. I can then just drag the Exercise Files folder into this file and then it will be copied up to Creative Cloud. And, in fact, you can see that synchronization happening just there.
And if I go to the Creative Cloud app, see this actually synced already. And there's a little tick, just there. If you wanted to do it via the web, you can click the View on Web icon and then it would take you to assets.adobe.com and your files. Here's the one that I've just copied. But I could equally just upload the assets from here, also. So if I come across the the right-hand side you'll see there's a drop-down that says Actions. And if I click on that I can choose to Create a Folder. And If I give it a name, if I just call this exFiles1, just here, it will create that folder.
I can then just go into that and then upload the files from there. So I would go to Upload, go to my Desktop just here, and, actually, I'll put it in my Creative Cloud file. So if you just go back to there, open that one up, then I'll select these assets, Open, and they would upload, like so. So you got two choices for how you get them in there, but once you get them in there you've got access to them, of course, via your desktop applications and also from the mobile apps we'll be using on this course.
