Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Essentials.
Exercise files are available to Premium subscribers of lynda.com. Simply download the exercise files to your computer and place them on the Desktop for ease of access. The exercise files are organized by chapter number. Whenever an exercise file is available for a video, you'll see a yellow overlay at the bottom of the screen that indicates the location and name of the exercise file. Working with the exercise files can add great value to the training; however, if you don't have access to the exercise files, you can still follow along with the videos, often using your own files, and have a fulfilling learning experience.
