Join Scott Simpson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Learning AppleScript.
I have a folder called exercise files on my desktop. If you're a member at lynda.com you can download a zip version of this from the course webpage. This exercise files folder contains the starting points for a lot of the scripts that I will be writing and two other folders as well. Files and Images. Files contains different files that I will be using in different movies throughout the course and the Images folder is the starting point for our water marking application. Throughout the course you'll see it on the desktop. I recommend you copy it onto the desktop rather than move it. Because throughout some of the movies, we'll be changing those files and you may want to be able to roll back to try again.
