Collaborate on Creative Cloud Libraries and folders

Learn how to collaborate on folders and libraries with other users from your Adobe Creative Cloud account.

You can collaborate with other users and share a private folder from your Creative Cloud account with specified users. All invited users can then work co-operatively with read-only (locked) assets in a shared private folder. Collaborators can view, edit, rename, move, or delete contents of the shared folder if they've been granted the necessary access rights and permissions.

To share public links to files, folders, and libraries with others (share assets with read-only access), see Share files and folders.

Collaborate on Creative Cloud Libraries

You can share libraries with collaborators using the Creative Cloud website, Creative Cloud desktop and mobile apps, and Creative Cloud desktop app. For a list of Creative Cloud apps currently supporting libraries, see Creative Cloud Libraries.  

Note: Collaborators require an Adobe ID. If they don't already have an Adobe ID, they can create one when they accept the invitation.
