Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Lightroom CC First Look.
- [Narrator] I put together some exercise files for you to use as you work along with me through this course. If you have access to the exercise files, download them to your computer from the course page. I suggest you put them on your desktop, so they're easy to find. In order to use the exercise files with Lightroom CC, you first have to add them into Lightroom CC. To do that, launch Lightroom CC, if you haven't already, and then go to the top left of the interface and click this plus icon, which is the Add Photos button.
That will open the Finder, if you're on a Mac like me, or the File Explorer, if you're on Windows. In the Finder or File Explorer, navigate to and select the Exercise Files folder. On a Mac, click the Review for Import button. On Windows, click the Choose Folder button. That opens this window with previews of all the photos in the Exercise Files folder. All the photo previews should have a blue checkmark on them. If for some reason yours don't, go to the Select All checkbox and activate that checkbox.
By the way, if any of the photos on your screen are gray, that means that you've already imported them into Lightroom CC. Now just go over to the blue button and click Add Photos. The preview window closes and you'll see the exercise files displayed here in the photo grid in Lightroom CC ready for you to use during this course.
