git : binary files - Yes/No?

What's a good way to deal with binary files - e.g. PSD or AI files - and still keep the size of the repo reasonable?

  1. Submodules: repo within a repo is a solution, but complex for those new to git. Not an option with GitHub for Mac app also.

  2. Separate repo: difficult to manage?

Audience are web design students new to git. Any advice on how to mange this? Thanks.
