#CreativeFriday – Creative Cloud Collaboration Tools

To configure the Creative Cloud collaboration tools and set up collaboration on a library with another Creative Cloud member, you will need to create at least one library (you don’t need to have a libray to be a contibutor). Once a Creative Cloud libary is set up (it may or may not have any content yet, and it doesn’t need to to enable the collaboration tools), you can then easily share and configure the collaboration tools feature of CC libraries in a couple of ways.

1. Collaboration – Be able to actively share and collaborate on assets within a library (either from within the desktop apps or from supported mobile apps)

Once the library has been created, the collaboration configuration is enabled from the CC Library fly out menu on the Library panel, then choose Collaborate.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 23.08.02v2Photoshop CC 2015 is used in this example, but collabroation can be configured from within the other applications (Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects, Premiere pro etc). The application will open your default web browser and give the opportunity to type in an Adobe ID to send an inviation to your collegue, co-worker or other member(s) of the Creative Cloud.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 23.31.57

The invited user will get an invitation via the Creative Cloud desktop application, and once accepted, the library will be added to their Creative Cloud storage area and will be available from within the desktop apps and any supported mobile applications.

N.B. Using Creative Cloud libraries in Collaboration mode will use the storage allocation of the contributing/invited user.

Anyone can then update and add content, any updates will sync across other users of the library and updated on the web view, as well as inside the mobile apps (where appropriate), as well as the library within the desktop app.

2. Send a link – An ability to give the library to another creative, without any collaboration features.

It might be that you want to give the library to someone else as a stand alone entity (any updates of content that are made to the original library after the contents have been downloaded won’t be synced to this version of the library).

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 23.08.02Once the ‘Share Link’ has been selected, Photoshop (in this case), will direct you to your default web browser, at this point you can email another creative cloud member.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 23.12.19

Once the receiving the download link, the user can download the contents.

 

The collaboration of library assets is a very handy feature and a great way to create joint ideation of a project, or even just use it to share re-usable content within your team or peer group.

#CreativeFriday – Using Creative Cloud Libraries – Part 1 – Introduction

One of the most powerful additions to the Creative Cloud is the Creative Cloud Libraries feature. Creative Cloud libraries offers many unique things, from collaboration with other Creatives and Creative Cloud users, a Photoshop Global referencing system, as well as a way to download and license from Adobe Stock. I thought I would cover how to use this feature over a series of posts.

Creative Cloud Libraries exist in two places within your Creative Cloud Id. Within the desktop apps like Premiere Pro, Illustrator, After Effects, Indesign and Photoshop. They also exist within your Adobe ID on your creative cloud on the web.

Let’s take Photoshop CC.

Creative Cloud Libraries are available under the Window menu, and also exists as a panel within the desktop applications.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 21.43.04

Libraries are essentially a way to store and share content at a global level within the desktop applications and is available at any time in your workflow, regardless of which canvas is open. Libraries will also automatically sync to the Creative Cloud (when an internet connection is available), and are available where ever you login to Creative Cloud web site.

Because Libraries exist on the Creative Cloud, they can also be shared to and collaborated on with other Creative Cloud users, they can also be given as a link to another Adobe ID’s without sharing any content.

In this post we will talk about Creating a new library and putting content in there from Photoshop.

Once the panel is open, a library can be created from the drop down list (marked in yellow), or from the fly out menu (Red) and choosing ‘Create New Library’.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 21.48.53Once selected, you can give the library a meaningful name.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 21.53.21

Clicking create will provide you will an empty space for content.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 21.53.26

Libraries can store content from mobile apps, like Brush, Hue, Shape, as well as content from Stock and objects from Photoshop or the other desktop applications (like shapes, text, colours etc). Libraries can also contain content from your current canvas. To get assets into the Library, just drag the asset direct from the canvas into the panel.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 22.13.43There are many things that Libraries can contain from the canvas, from layer styles, text, colours, graphics and shapes. After using collections for a while there will be many assets that you can use at any time, on any canvas, as well as other installations of the applications on your Adobe ID and from within the other desktop applications (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Premiere Pro and After Effects).

You can also see the libraries (marked in Red below) on the Creative Cloud web site.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 22.52.18

Once inside the Libraries on the web site, all content can be viewed directly from within the the browser.

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 22.53.05This post is just an intro to Creative Cloud libraries over the next few posts, we will discover more of what Libraries can do within your workflow.
