A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique digital identifier for a piece of artwork.
To become an NFT, a piece of content is “minted.” Minting an NFT executes a transaction to create the unique digital identifier on the Ethereum blockchain — a public and tamper-proof ledger.
Once a piece of content is minted, it can be bought or sold using cryptocurrency (crypto), like Ether or Bitcoin. Then, as NFTs are bought and sold, the transaction details associated with artwork are added to the blockchain ledger.
This form of buying and selling art on a blockchain can be used to compensate creators throughout the lifetime of their assets. However, it’s also important to ensure creators get proper attribution and the correct party receives payment.
NFTs keep track of all transactions of a piece of art once they're minted into the blockchain, which generally happens after the artwork has already been created.
Creators who want to share their full attribution history can do so by using Content Credentials (Beta) while creating their work in Photoshop. Creators can include their public crypto wallet addresses with their work’s content credentials by adding it to Content Credentials (Beta).
NFT marketplaces can then match the attribution details from Photoshop to the NFTs transaction details. Audiences and potential buyers will then have more insight into whether the seller of the art is the same as the Photoshop user who exported the artwork.

Go to Window > Content Credentials (Beta) to open the Content Credentials (Beta) panel. Select Connect accounts or use the menu to select Manage connected accounts to visit the Connected accounts page.
Once you’ve finished logging in, your crypto accounts will appear in the Crypto section of the Connected accounts page. Adobe won’t keep any access to your crypto accounts.
You can select Remove to remove your account from Content Credentials (Beta), but your crypto address will remain on any previously exported content.
Upload your content to one of these Content Credentials (Beta)-supported marketplaces. Once it’s minted, your NFT will have a Content Credentials (Beta) badge and your NFT’s content credentials will be viewable to the public.
