Downloading and setting up Sketch for macOS is quick and simple. This video shows you how.
- To get started with Sketch, I'll start at the beginning.…The very beginning.…I'm going to assume you don't yet have the software…on your machine, so you can follow along with me…or pause the video and do these steps as well…to get Sketch up and running on your Mac.…First we'll go to the maker's website,…and they have a free trial available…so in case you are not ready to purchase it,…you can go ahead and use the free trial for this class.…We'll select "Download Free Trial".…
You can see it's downloading here at the bottom left.…It looks like it's already downloaded.…So I'll locate that on my hard drive.…Here it is, it's a zip file, I'll unzip it.…There's the application.…So, from here I'll put it in the applications folder,…by dragging and dropping it to the applications folder.…We should be able to find it in alphabetical order.…There it is, Sketch.…It's just that easy.…
I'll start it up and just to be sure,…we didn't get from the App Store,…we downloaded it from the internet, are we sure?…We would like to open it, absolutely.…
