Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
Exercise Files are available to Lynda.com premium subscribers and for those who…purchase the DVD. For the Hands-On Workshop series, you are strongly encouraged…to follow along with your own files to create your own designs.…When downloading the exercise files folder from the Lynda.com website, it's…recommended that you place the folder on your Desktop for easy access. …The exercise files are conveniently organized by chapter number and name.…

Q: The instructor explains that doubling-clicking on an image while holding down the Option key on a Mac will automatically open the image in Photoshop. However, the image opens into Preview instead. Why is this happening?
A: Before this feature will work, the correct file type associations must be set up, so that TIFs and JPEGs open with Photoshop and not with Preview.
From the Finder, select any JPEG or TIF file, then Choose File > Get Info. From the Open With drop down menu, choose Photoshop and click the Change All button. Repeat this process for each of the different file types you want use. You need only do this once and it should work from now on.
