Sharing Creative Cloud Libraries with Your Team

Creative Cloud Libraries become even more powerful when used collaboratively. Sharing libraries with your team allows everyone to access and utilize the same set of design assets, ensuring brand consistency, streamlining workflows, and boosting overall project efficiency.

Sharing Methods

  2. Navigate to the "Libraries" tab and select the library you want to share.
  3. Click the "Collaborate" button in the library options menu.
  4. Enter the email addresses of the team members you want to share with, separated by commas.
  5. Choose the desired permission level:
    • Can Edit: Allows collaborators to view, edit, add, and delete assets, as well as invite other collaborators.
    • Can View: Grants read-only access, allowing collaborators to see and use the library assets but not modify them.
  6. Click "Invite."

Additional Considerations

  • Collaborators require an Adobe ID: Ensure your team members have an Adobe ID to access shared libraries. They can create a free ID if they don't already have one.
  • Manage permissions carefully: Choose the appropriate permission level based on each team member's role and responsibilities.
  • Communicate effectively: Inform your team about the shared libraries, their purpose, and any specific guidelines for usage.

Benefits of Sharing Libraries

  • Streamlined workflow: Eliminate the need for individual asset searches and duplication of efforts.
  • Improved collaboration: Foster seamless teamwork by allowing team members to easily share and utilize design elements within projects.
  • Increased efficiency: Reduce overall project time and resources by leveraging a centralized asset repository.
