Share access and edit your cloud documents

Learn how to easily invite others to edit your cloud documents and access if from the Photoshop app on desktop or the iPad, the web, or the Creative Cloud desktop app.

Collaborating with fellow designers has never been easier. Now you can invite others to edit your Photoshop cloud documents. 

Invite others to edit

The Invite to edit feature in Photoshop allows asynchronous editing where each collaborator can edit a shared cloud document, one at a time. If multiple people try to edit a shared cloud document simultaneously, a version conflict may arise. In this case, a conflict avoidance dialog will appear, suggesting you delay editing the document while someone else is editing or create a copy of the shared cloud document to proceed with editing. 

Photoshop desktop

  1. Click the Invite to Edit icon  in the top right corner of the app.
