Introduced in the July 2018 release of Adobe Bridge CC

Creative Cloud Libraries makes the core design assets for your brand or personal projects available to you anywhere. Easily collect and organize images, colors, text styles, and other elements created in various Creative Cloud desktop and mobile apps. Then reuse and modify these assets across projects, devices, other Creative Cloud apps, and teams - all from the Creative Cloud Libraries panel. You can add and manage your assets in your libraries using Bridge and easily access those elements in many of the Creative Cloud apps.

Overview of Creative Cloud Libraries

Collect

Creative Cloud Libraries provides a mechanism to collect design assets from various apps, and is not limited to desktop apps only. You can capture inspiration, whenever it strikes, using the family of Creative Cloud mobile apps or even download assets from Adobe Stock.

Manage

You can organize design assets into multiple Creative Cloud Libraries. These may be based on brands, projects, types of assets, or even your personal favorites that you reuse to create your signature style.

Use in designs

Create designs and artwork by using the most up-to-date assets from Creative Cloud Libraries.

Add assets from Adobe Stock

Adobe Stock is deeply integrated with Creative Cloud Libraries. You can add a watermarked stock image to any of your libraries directly using the Adobe Stock website. You can then use the watermarked image in your documents as a library-linked asset.

When you choose to license the image—which you can do directly from within the Libraries panel in Bridge—all instances of the watermarked asset in your open documents are updated to the high-resolution licensed image.
