How to use the exercise files for Adobe XD.
- [Voiceover] If you're a premium member of the Lynda.com Online Training Library, you have access to all the exercise files used throughout this title. In fact, here they are on my desktop. If I open this up, you can see these different chapter folders. I can open up any one of those and you'll see there's a Begin file, and then also there's a Final file that you can also jump to. Now if I go back, also notice that there's this Assets folder that contains a number of assets as well as a final project that you can access.
But the cool this is is you don't really need to use these graphics. I encourage you to use your own to build your own app. Now if you're a monthly member or an annual member of Lynda.com, you don't have access to these exercise files, but honestly, you can follow along just as easily with your own assets, which is what you really want to do anyway when you're making an app. So let's jump right in to designing a mobile app with Adobe XD.
Learn how to lay out a screen design with graphics and text and import vector and raster images. See how easy it is to create complex screen designs, complete with repeated lists and grids that are as simple to change as they are to create. This goes for any mobile screen type: iOS or Android, tablet or smartphone. Once the design is done, author Paul Trani shows how to add interactions and transitions to see how the app will "work" from one screen to the next. The end result is a full-featured prototype that can be shared with designers, developers, and clients, and broken down and exported as assets for use in development.
