Sharing Creative Cloud Libraries in Photoshop

Just two months ago, we introduced the Libraries panel to Photoshop CC 2014. Libraries help you Store your favorite things, Use them over and over, and as of today, you can now Share your Libraries with your team.


Libraries can save all types of content—that specific color, the client’s logo or watermark, or your favorite style of text. Just grab any content from your design and drag it into the panel. Libraries can store one or more layers or groups, in addition to Smart Objects. Libraries can also extract colors, text styles, and even layer effects like drop shadows by simply clicking on one of the buttons in the Libraries panel.

You can create as many Libraries as you want: one for each project, type of project, or even just your favorites.

Once you store something in Libraries, you can access it anywhere. Everything is automatically (and securely) synced to Creative Cloud.

How to Store All Types of Content in Creative Cloud Libraries


Using content from Libraries is as simple as clicking on the color or dragging the object onto the canvas. A single click applies the color, text style, or layer effect to the selected layer. To edit the color or graphic, just double click it. You can also rename it to something helpful, like “The official color” or “Body text.”

How to Use Creative Cloud Libraries


With your Libraries content synced to Creative Cloud, it’s now easy to give your co-workers access to the same set of great content. No more emailing out-of-date template PSDs, no more mismatched designs because someone used the wrong color or drop shadow.

To share a Library, just click on the Collaborate menu item and enter the email addresses of the people you want to share with. Once they accept the invitation, they will have access to that library, just like shared file folders.

How to Share Creative Cloud Libraries

Libraries are an important part of the future of Creative Cloud, enabling you to work with others more seamlessly than ever before. Give it a try, and let us know what you think! We’d love to hear your feedback in the comments below, or on

      No Haider Bro, it is impossible to get the free version of Photoshop. But if you cannot afford all the money then just ask them. I am sure they will give you a discount.
