Invite others to edit your cloud documents

  2. In the Invite to edit dialog that opens, type in the email addresses of intended recipients to collaborate.
    Note: When working with a non-cloud document on your computer, you need to save it as a Photoshop cloud document before you can invite someone to access and edit it. To do so, click the Continue button under Save as a cloud document to invite people prompt in the Invite to edit dialog.
