Improvements to the Share UI

As we continue to work towards a richer set of file sharing capabilities, we have made a small update to our file sharing interface to make collaboration easier. In addition to sharing a file from the single file view, you can now easily share it from the folder views (both the list and grid views support this new UI).

Additionally, you can now quickly copy the share URL directly to your clipboard with the click of a button! This URL can be shared with teammates and clients so they can view, download or comment on the file.

We are working hard on further improving file and folder sharing features within Creative Cloud as well as from our touch applications and desktop tools. Stay tuned for more updates soon.

    “We are working hard on […] desktop tools. Stay tuned for more updates soon.”

      Don’t worry! Creative Cloud Connection will be available “in a few weeks”!

      CCC is such a joke right now, seriously. It’s vaporware.

    why do i always have to down load something for this phone to view some ?

    We REALLY hope “more updates soon” means a whole lot less than four months like your first promise for the desktop connection app.

    seems to me they are trying the “apple” approach of giving us ridiculously simple software, then adding “features” every so often.

    so frustrating! the share features are ridiculous, its got so many privacy flaws, who the hell made this, 1 junior developer??

    this is adobe for god sake, a lot of us are professionals on here??? paying good money for this service.

    i can send my client a link to a file, but if that link got out say, on a forum, everyone can access it!?!?

    erm… password protection adobe???

    What will be really useful for me as a photographer , is to have a feature letting you send a whole file ( url link ) to your clients or colleagues rather than having to send a whole bench of url links … when you have a portfolio of 160 photos , i do not really have the time to copy 160 links ….. many thanks adobe for adding this feature .

    It’s a small thing, but it sure is annoying. Why isn’t the Adobe Application Manager window re-sizable? It’s insane to have to scroll up and down in the thing. The list of apps is just not that long! Trust me, it will fit on our screens! Or if it won’t, hey, we’ll resize it! I promise!

    Uhhh, can someone show me how to “share the folder view”?? I would really love to share just one link with my client. Not an email for every single file within.

      Hi Steve! Unfortunately, you can’t share a folder view yet. But, we’ve got great news coming soon… I encourage you to attend our free, online Create Now Live event on Wednesday, December 5th at 10am PST. You can learn more and register for it here:

    Share a folder is essential. I hope this feature is available after the online Create Now Live event.


  • By Stacey - 4:49 PM on January 30, 2013  

    I too would also love the “whole folder” sharing feature!

  • By Peter - 2:23 PM on February 12, 2013  

    Have they taken all the users suggestions to production yet to update the cloud share options to include a password so that not anyone can just click on your link and download if they somehow found access to the link…

    Almost 5 months and still no folder sharing! cant believe

    • By Bernard Lechler - 8:08 AM on April 4, 2013  

      Agreed! C’mon! Let’s get a folder sharing feature Adobe!

  • By Susan - 10:48 AM on March 20, 2013  

    Seriously, we still can’t share folders? This is a little crazy. It’s basically unusable for me at this point when I need to share many images at a time – which is nearly always. Please make this happen.

    Thank you.

  • By Zach Lasry - 12:07 PM on March 23, 2013  

    Susan, I’m in the same boat. This is unusable for me unless i can share folders.
    How am i supposed to send my clients images for review? Copy and paste 500 individual photo urls?

  • By Alex - 6:27 AM on May 8, 2013  

    No folder share = this service has almost no value.

    • By Megan - 10:55 AM on May 9, 2013  

      Hi Alex, Folder sharing will be available to customers in June, as was announced at the Adobe MAX conference this week. Cheers.
