Here’s how to work with the exercise files that accompany this title.
- [Instructor] For those of you who have access to the exercise files, you'll get something like this. And this is the Photos Library in its finished state, right, at the very end. Now, for instance, this shot here. This shot started out in color, right. And then I do the movie on how to convert it to black and white. In the finished state of the library, it'll be in black and white. But remember what you can do, if you want to follow along. All you have to do is open it up in the Edit mode, revert to original, and it'll give you something that looks like this, the original image.
Then you can follow along and end up with this again. But really what I wanted you to see is everything in its finished state. Now on the other hand, if you want, you watch the movie and you take a look at the exercise file here. You can open it up and see all the changes that I made to this image, and they're all preserved in here. So there's a couple different ways to work with this. Another thing that I did is that if you go to Info here, I tried to make notes on the images where I use them.
So for instance, I said here, use this image for the black and white tutorial. And then if we go to a different shot here, let's see, so I use this for black and white tutorial. Oh, and this is the one where I send it to Photoshop in edit with. So you see, it even helped me right there. So there are some notes in Get Info, and that might help you as well. Now, in order to actually use this and do this. Let me go ahead and click done here.
You have to take that exercise file container, let me switch over to it here. It'll look something like this. And you have to switch to it. And if you don't know how to do that, I'll remind you right now. What you do is you go ahead and you quit Photos and then you launch Photos again, but you hold down the Option key. And when you hold down the Option key, you'll get a dialog box. And you'll have options for the libraries that are available.
And you know, what you want to do is you'll want to pick this one right here. You might have different libraries, you might just have a system library. It'll depend on what's on your hard drive. But pick this one right here. And then you do choose library. And then when you do that, it'll open up to this. Now when you want to go back to your system library, the library that you normally use with Photos, you'll have to do the same process again where you quit Photos, hold down the Option key, relaunch it, and then go back to your previous library.
So this is really handy, there's a lot of good stuff in here. I also included the screenshots for a number of things that I did. We have the movie in here. We have a little movie about continuity camera. It's just full of goodies to make sure that you get the most out of this training as possible. I hope you enjoy working with these images and as long as you keep in mind that what you're getting is the finished library, and that by the time I get to the end of the training, it'll look like this, but as you go along the way, there are times when you see images in the movie that are a little different than the exercise library.
Again, because exercise library is finished state, and as we work through the movies, the library is evolving. All righty, have fun with this. I'm really excited, I can't wait to start showing you things in this application.
