If you're a premium member to the lynda.com online training library or if you're watching these movies on a disk, you have access to the exercise files. Once you've located the exercise files folder you can double-click it in order to open it up, here you'll discover that I've organized the exercise files, all of the images that we'll be using this course in the different folders based on the different chapters. You can go ahead and open up one of those folders in order to see the photographs that we'll be working on in that chapter.
You also might find it helpful to work with Adobe Bridge, because in Adobe Bridge you can point to the folder and then view larger previews of those photographs and then open those images straight into Photoshop. Now if you don't have access to the exercise files, no big deal, you can either use your own images or of course, you can always just simply follow along. All right, Let's begin.
