Creative Cloud Assets lets you share public links to the following types of assets: Files, Folders, Libraries, Library elements, Mobile creations, and XD prototypes & specifications.
By sharing public links, you can gather quick feedback on assets and work more efficiently with others. When you share a link with someone, they can view a high fidelity preview of the assets directly in the web browser without having to install Creative Cloud apps or sign in to the website. In addition to viewing the assets, they can write comments or download a copy of the files (if you permit them to do so).
Public sharing of 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 you can copy/paste to send. At any time, you can turn the URL off to revoke access.
While sharing libraries and library assets, you can also choose to let other users follow them. Whenever you update the library or the library asset, followers automatically get the updates across all supported Creative Cloud apps.
To collaborate with co-workers (share assets with different levels of access permissions), see Collaborate with others.
In the Link Settings section, the following options are enabled by default:
- Allow Download Allows link recipients to download a copy of the file.
- Allow Commenting Allows link recipients to add comments to the file.
- Allow Save To Creative Cloud Allows link recipients to save the file to their Creative Cloud account.
If you have View-only permissions on a shared private folder, you cannot create or share a public link to it. However, you can send out links to public folders. Later, if the owner decides to make the folder private, the link you shared earlier becomes inaccessible.
You can also share individual library assets and mobile creations in much the same way. For example, here’s how you share an Adobe Stock image added as an asset to a Creative Cloud library:
The Allow Follow functionality is not currently supported for mobile creations.
You can do the following with the assets shared with you:
- Save shared assets to your Creative Cloud account.
- Download the file to your device if the sender has enabled download.
- View a full-screen preview of the shared file.
- Add and send your comments.
Prototypes you create and share using Adobe XD are listed under Prototypes & Specs in your assets. Click the file to view and comment.
To share the prototype file, click the Options menu (...) for the file, choose Copy Link, and then send it to recipients.
For more information, see Share prototypes and design specs using Adobe XD.
The prototypes and design specs received for review are shown in the Shared With You BETA section in your assets.
You see only the shared folders if no prototypes or designs specs are shared with you.
Shared with You is currently a Beta feature. For more information, see Shared with You (BETA).
