- [Voiceover] I just wanted to take a minute to explain the exercise files that come with this course. It's not overly complicated, I just have a series of images in here. If you're using Photoshop or other programs that understand PSD I actually have a Photoshop file in here you can use. I also have a JPEG that if you're using another program that doesn't understand PSD you can open that as well. I'm trying to show the different concepts and different things we can do for optimizing our images without focusing on a specific application. Now I did use Photoshop a lot, doesn't mean that I use it all the time, that's the only thing I use.
So I have some images in here you can poke around in and to see, just different examples. And we use them during the course just to show you what we have available. So I just wanted to give you a heads up on the exercise files folder that comes with. Just a few example files in there that if you really wanted to follow along you could.
These tutorials use programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and Sketch, but the tips apply equally well to any other graphics software.
