Creative Cloud Libraries Streamline Processes Across Adobe CC Products

Learn how to access, organize, and share creative assets with other users, and Adobe desktop and mobile apps.

Easily access, organize and share your design assets using Creative Cloud Libraries. As you and your creative team move between computers and devices, your shared library items are ready to use anywhere, in your Creative Cloud desktop and mobile apps. Create personal and shared libraries to keep track of brand identity assets, frequently-used icons for web layouts, video clips, or your go-to brushes and color themes for illustrations. Your library items are automatically synced to your Creative Cloud account, so you can work with them wherever you are, even if you’re offline.

Add assets created in Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Dreamweaver, Muse, Fuse CC (Preview), and Animate CC. You can also add assets created in Adobe mobile apps or downloaded from Adobe Stock or Creative Cloud Market.

Add assets to CC Libraries

To add assets to a Creative Cloud Library in your desktop app, go to Window > Libraries to open the Libraries panel.

You can use the Library menu to create a new Library and name it, or simply add assets to the default library, named My Library.

Click the corresponding button in the Libraries panel to add graphics, text styles, colors, and effects from your document. You can also add graphic assets such as shapes and photos by dragging them directly from your project into the Libraries panel.

Asset thumbnails are organized by category, so they’re easy to locate. Double click an asset’s title to rename it.

Now that the asset is saved to a library, it’s easy to drag and drop it to add it to other projects.

Add assets from Adobe Stock and mobile apps

You can access Adobe Stock directly from Adobe desktop applications.

In the Libraries panel, click the Adobe Stock icon. With Adobe Stock, you can easily browse images, illustrations, and video assets directly from the CC Libraries panel. When you find the right asset, download a watermarked version of the asset directly to your Libraries. Now you can use your newly saved Adobe Stock asset in any Adobe desktop application.

When you’re ready to use the non-watermarked version, right-click the asset thumbnail in your library and choose License this image/video from the pop-up menu.

You can easily add assets to Libraries from Adobe’s growing family of mobile apps and services. Assets are automatically converted to the right formats for use in your desktop or mobile apps.

Reuse assets from CC Libraries

Once assets are saved to Libraries, you can reuse them in your designs—in the same file, another project, or another app—without worrying that you’ll grab the wrong versions.

To add a graphic asset to your project, drag it directly from the Library onto your Illustrator artboard, Photoshop canvas, InDesign layout, Premiere Pro or Animate CC timeline, or web page layout in Dreamweaver and Muse CC.

To apply layer styles, colors, and text styles, select an object in your project and click the thumbnail of the desired library asset.

When it comes to Adobe products, Adobe has done an excellent job of integrating their applications to streamline the processes required to achieve your end goal. Creative Cloud libraries is an excellent example of this.

You can buy Adobe CC directly from the official Adobe website. However, if you are from South Africa and local support is important to you, we would recommend that you purchase from a local Adobe partner. Learning Curve – Adobe Reseller is an official partner that offers great support to students, education and business alike. They also have a national footprint.

However, they are only one of a few official Adobe partners so feel free to do your own research to get the best deal for you.
