Adobe Exchange Packager (Preview)

Today we released our first preview of a tool called Adobe Exchange Packager. As the name suggests this application helps you easily package your Creative Suite content or add-ons for the new Adobe Exchange. Adobe Exchange will enable developers, trainers, community experts and many others to promote, distribute, monetize and track their CS6 solutions. These products will be made available to potential customers within the ‘Adobe Exchange’ panel inside most CS6 applications. The team is actively seeking launch partners for the new Adobe Exchange and are taking applications now, for users who would like to be added into the prerelease program, before the launch this Summer. If you are interested in becoming a launch partner and getting in on this exciting opportunity early or hearing more about the program, just complete the brief Adobe Exchange Prerelease Program sign up form:

Adobe Exchange Packager joins CS Extension Builder 2 for developing engaging extensions faster and Configurator 3 which makes custom panels for Photoshop and InDesign, as tools that let you create Adobe Exchange compatible products. Now you can easily create content for the new Adobe Exchange with Adobe Exchange Packager. It generates a single file that Adobe Extension Manager uses to install files such as scripts, brushes, swatches, templates and more into the right places for Creative Suite applications.

The Adobe Exchange Panel will be made available initially on Adobe Labs in a few short weeks, so we would encourage you to sign up for the prerelease program and get your products and content ready for our planned initial public release in July.

We hope to see your products and solutions on the new Adobe Exchange soon.

  1. Is that mean old stuff on Exchange will be removed? I have lot of stuff on Ps Exchange waiting approval, nobody approves them couple of months. Should I download them and resubmit with this packager.

    Hi Bojan, the new Adobe Exchange was built from the ground up so while it shares the same brand name as the current Adobe Exchange website it is very different. Soon we will be rebranding the current Adobe Exchange website as ‘Adobe Exchange Classic’ but the content inside will remain. In terms of Photoshop Exchange, I am sorry to hear that your content has not been approved. Please join the new Adobe Exchange prerelease, package up your products with Packager and submit them. We have a very fast approval turnaround so your products can be ready for when we go live in July. Sign up here:
