Share a file or folder publicly

Learn how to share links to your Creative Cloud files, folders, and libraries. Anyone with the link can view the assets from a browser, even if they don't have a Creative Cloud subscription. Collaborators can comment or download copies.

Share links to a file or folder

You can create and share a link to any folder you have, except for shared private folders where you have view-only permissions. If the owner later decides to make the folder private, the link you shared earlier won't work.

  1. Sign in to the Creative Cloud website

  2. Navigate to the correct tab, and select the folder or file you want to share. (To select it, hover the mouse over it, and check the box that appears.)

    Select a file or folder

  3. Select either Get link  or Share  > Get Link.

    The Share Link dialog displays the link.

  4. Set the Link Settings you want for the file:

    • Allow Commenting Lets link recipients add comments to the file.
    • Allow Save To Creative Cloud Lets link recipients save the file to their Creative Cloud account.
    Change link settings

    Note: Starting January 30, 2020, all public links allow downloading of the linked file. If you created a link before January 30, 2020 with Allow Download turned off, the download button is not shown for those files. 

  5. Select Copy Link, and share the copied link with the desired recipients.

     Link recipients cannot upload, update, or delete your assets. You can revoke access anytime you want.

Share links to libraries and library assets

Your collaborators can follow shared libraries and library assets. Whenever you update them, followers automatically get an update across all supported Creative Cloud apps.

  1. Sign in to the Creative Cloud website.

  2. Select the options menu () for the library or the library asset that you want to share, and select Share. Then, select Get link.

    • Allow Follow Lets link recipients receive notifications for any changes to the shared library.
    • Allow Save To Creative Cloud Lets link recipients save the file to their Creative Cloud account.
  4. Select Copy Link and share with the intended recipients. Anyone with the link can view the library contents or the library asset.
