You can use Adobe Asset Link to work with and modify assets stored within your organization's digital asset management system–Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Assets. With the in-app panel, you don't require a browser to download or upload assets. The Adobe Asset Link panel displays digital assets from your AEM Assets environment. You need not sign in to AEM Assets. When you sign in to your Creative Cloud app, you are automatically authenticated in AEM in the background through Adobe's identity management system (IMS).
Use the Adobe Asset Link panel to browse or search for assets. To edit an asset, check it out from within your Creative Cloud app. After editing, you can check it back in, without leaving the app. You can also use Adobe Asset Link to browse read-only assets in AEM Assets, including logos, standard designs, or templates. You can download and include such assets in your creative artifacts. However, you cannot modify the assets.
Adobe Asset Link also prevents conflicts by indicating whether assets are already checked out, which prevents other users from overwriting the assets.
