I am trying to download the images to follow along with the lessions in the book, but it looks like a membership is needed to perform the download. Am I missing something? So far I am very disappointed with the organization of the needed materials. Having an area to download all needed materials in one download and a chapter by chapter download for users with lower speed connections would have been a godsend.
Hi Rusty. I chose not to include images with the book primarly to keep publishing costs down. Image licensing and including a CD on a book can increase the price of the book. Instead, I used low cost stock images and reference the place you can purchase the image from the book’s companion web site. All of the stock images sites I used offer low-resolution images for a low cost with options for larger versions of the image at slightly higher prices. I specifically chose low cost stock image sites which typically sell photos around $3US per image at the time of writing the book. Purchasing a stock photo usually requires you create an account on the site before you can purchase the image. Neither I nor the publisher makes any money from your purchase of those stock images.
Each chapter that starts with a stock photo has a web page on this web site that includes a link to that stock image. So there is a chapter-by-chapter option for downloading required images. Some of those images are free. Others you have to buy from the image source web site.
Since the images come from different sources and would require multiple licenses there was no way to easily and inexpensively make them all available for download from one giant archive file.
I hope that helps clarify the intent and reasoning for not including the source images with the book.
