We’re currently rolling out a new and improved Creative Cloud Assets website experience. If your Assets experience is different from what’s described on this page, see this Help page.


Creative Cloud Assets lets you share public links to the following types of assets:

  • Files
  • Folders

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 short URL that you can copy/paste to send. At any time, you can turn the URL off to revoke access.

To collaborate with co-workers (share assets with different levels of access permissions), see Collaborate with others.

Share a file or folder

  1. On the Creative Cloud Assets page, do one of the following:

    • Select a file or folder to share.
    • Open a file.
  2. Click the Share icon (). If you've selected a folder, choose Get Link To Folder from the drop-down menu.

    Get a link to share your asset
  3. 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

    Optionally, you can choose to disable the options.

    Change Link Settings
  4. Click Copy Link and share it via email or phone. 

    Clicking the short URL opens the shared file or folder in a web browser. Recipients don't have to be Creative Cloud members to view or access publicly shared files and folders.


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 will become inaccessible.

View an asset shared with you

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
View, comment, save, or download the asset shared with you
