Join Seán Duggan for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Creating Photo Composites on Smartphones and Tablets.
- If you're a premium member of lynda.com, then you have access to the exercise files that I'll be using throughout this title. Once you've downloaded the exercise files folder to your computer, you can double click on it to open it up. Here you'll see that I've organized all the images that we will be working with in this course into different folders based on the different course chapters. The chapter number appears in the filename for each image, and this is important because depending on how you transfer the images to your mobile device, you may just download the images and not the actual chapter specific folder structure that you see here.
Depending on what mobile system you're using and what other file transfer apps you may already have at your disposal, there are several different ways you might go about getting the files from your computer onto your mobile device. In addition to synchronizing the files using the file sync process that is specific to your mobile operating system, you can also use a free service like Dropbox to transfer the exercise files folder from your computer to your Dropbox space in the Cloud and then down to your mobile device via the Dropbox app. If you need help with this process, check out the course Up and Running With Dropbox in the lynda.com online library.
If you're not a premium subscriber to lynda.com, you won't have access to the exercise files that I'll be using, but you can follow along with the compositing concepts that I'll be sharing using your own image assets. Okay, let's get started!
