Adobe Fresco documents are synced to your Creative Cloud account.  You can seamlessly work with Photoshop. You can also transfer your documents to Illustrator as PDFs that will preserve the layers in your artwork. If you are an Adobe Sketch or Adobe Draw user, we will automatically migrate your work to Adobe Fresco the first time you sign in to the app.
