Sharing with Send Link Enhanced in Creative Cloud 2015
The 2015 release of Creative Cloud became available recently. In case you haven’t noticed yet, in addition to files and folders that you could share in earlier releases of Creative Cloud, you can now share copies of libraries, the assets in them, and mobile creations.
Sharing copies of any of these types of assets is easy. You simply create a public link that you can send out to recipients directly from from the Creative Cloud Assets page. Public sharing of copies of your assets ensures that you retain complete control over your content. Recipients get read-only access to your assets, which means they cannot upload, update, or delete them. The shared assets are accessed using a unique adobe.ly short URL that can be sent via email or copied/pasted. At any time, you can choose to turn the URL off to revoke access.
Let’s see how you can share libraries through a public link:
- Log in to the Creative Cloud Assets page.
- Once logged in, in the left pane, click Libraries.
- Expand the context menu for the library that you want to share. Click Send Link.
- Click Create Public Link.
- If you want recipients to be able to be able to save the library to their own Creative Cloud Assets account, click Advanced Options and then select Allow Downloads.
- Enter the comma-separated list of recipients and click Send Link.
- Creative Cloud sends out the public link and recipients receive email invitations to view the asset.
Collaboration in Creative Cloud
Sharing assets is one of the simplest ways to collaborate using Creative Cloud. If you want colleagues and friends to contribute to your creative project without limitations, you can add them as collaborators to folders and libraries. See this Help article to understand how.

You can also save shared assets to your Creative Cloud account. If the sender has shared a library or mobile creation, you can save the complete library or mobile creation to your own account. If a library asset is shared, you can save it to one of your own libraries.
