The file of images for the tutorial in the trial was saved in my downloads but when tried to place them in the document in the trial exercise (start_indesign_create-brochure), they did not show up in Importable Files - but I found them in All Files. However when tried to access, mesage read -"cannot place this file. No filter found for requested operation". What should I do now!?
You need to extract them first.
Thanks but I'm not in any way computer savvy! - what do you mean by extract, and how do I do this?
Depending what operating system your are using. In Windows when you select the file you'll see in the upper menu something like "Extract". Or you can right click on the file and you'll see the option "Extract All". I'm not familiar with Mac but there must be something that says "Extract" when you select the file.
