I have a project and there are some photoshop files that it uses. I now need to put the project with the photoshop files on a thumb drive so I can give it to somebody. How do I do it?

Perhaps I should add, I'm not even entirely sure where the photopshop files are located on my machine. There are likely several identical versions and also a few different versions in different places. The files are shared by other AE projects, so I have tried to not touch them for fear of breaking something. But I do want to copy the ones in use along with the AE project onto my thumb drive.

Simple -- use the Collect Files command.

+1 Collect Files. But want to add, if you are going to make a career out of motion graphics/editing, make a plan for media management. Never should you have to be searching for files/logos/video in your own projects. Believe me, this is a lesson I've learned the hard way multiple times.
