Your Adobe Creative Cloud account comes with online storage so that your assets are available to you anywhere and on any device or computer. You can preview many creative asset types directly in a web browser on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. These asset types include: PSD, AI, INDD, JPG, PDF, GIF, PNG, Photoshop Touch, and many others.
The Adobe Creative Cloud desktop application keeps all the assets in sync. Any additions, modifications, or deletions are reflected on all connected computers and devices. For example, if you upload an .ai asset using the Creative Cloud Assets page, it is automatically downloaded on all connected computers.
Your Creative Cloud assets include files synced with your desktop, assets created using Creative Cloud–enabled mobile
You can browse all your assets in the Files category using the current Creative Cloud assets page. Future updates to this page may feature integrating other file categories, such as mobile creations and libraries. Until then, you can switch to the previous website to browse your assets using these categories.
To sync assets from your computer, do one of the following:
- Copy, paste, or move assets to the Creative Cloud Files directory on your desktop.
- In an app, choose File > Save or File > Save As and navigate to the Creative Cloud Files directory.
To open the Creative Cloud Files directory from the Creative Cloud desktop app, select Assets > Files and click Open Folder.
Filenames that contain special characters such as |, ", ?, <, >, /, *, or : are not synced. Neither do files with reserved names, such as AUX or Com1. If you receive an error, rename the asset filename to sync it to Creative Cloud. For more information, see Error: "Unable to sync assets."
Also, you can upload assets directly to the Creative Cloud Assets page using any of the following methods.
(Applicable only to files) Uploading a file again creates a version of it and replaces the existing file with a new one. Creative Cloud keeps a copy of every change you make to a file.
To replace a file, using the Creative Cloud Assets page, do the following:

Deleting a file, library element, or mobile creation is a two-step process. You first delete it temporarily and then permanently from the Deleted folder for its category on the Assets website.
You can delete files on your desktop, from within the Assets website, and from a Creative Cloud-enabled mobile app. You can even use OS commands to delete assets from the Creative Cloud Files directory on your desktop.
All asset deletions are synced with your Creative Cloud account. Deleted assets continue to occupy online storage. Permanently deleting the assets frees up your storage quota.
|Membership plan||Free storage quota|
|Creative Cloud (Photography)||20 GB|
|Creative Cloud (Single App and All Apps)||100 GB|
|Creative Cloud for teams||100 GB|
Creative Cloud syncs up to 1 GB of overflow from any device. After that, the Creative Cloud desktop app stops syncing new assets and notifies you that you are over quota. A red exclamation point marks any assets that are unable to upload. You can still move, rename, or delete assets. To continue to sync assets, permanently delete other assets to free up space.
A small portion of storage is used for administrative purposes. Therefore, the actual storage space is slightly less than allocated. It varies from 100 KB to 500 KB based on the number of user assets.
