Adobe and Google Cloud have partnered to make it easier to share links to your creative assets with external teams and stakeholders through email. The two have launched the Adobe Creative Cloud for Gmail Add-on on the G Suite Marketplace.
You can now search for your Creative Cloud Assets and attach public links to Synced files, Libraries, and Mobile creations without leaving Gmail. You can also save any attachments received in Gmail directly to Creative Cloud in a few clicks.
How to share links to Creative Cloud files in emails
The Adobe Creative Cloud for Gmail Add-on lets you bring content stored in Creative Cloud directly into your Gmail messages so you can easily share files or assets created in applications like XD, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Lightroom.
When you tap Compose in your Gmail account, you will see the add-on readily available from the compose window. Look for the Creative Cloud icon at the bottom of the message. Clicking it launches the add-on’s file browser where you can search and find assets to insert into your message as thumbnails that dynamically link to your Creative Cloud files.
The current version supports sharing public links to your Creative Cloud Synced files, Libraries, and Mobile creations. Since private links are not supported in this version, if you’ve already shared some Creative Cloud assets privately, you’ll be prompted to set the privacy settings to “public” for those assets.
How to save email attachments to cloud storage
Open the Gmail message containing the files you want to save whether it is an ordinary attachment or an attached public link to Creative Cloud that was shared using the add-on.
Click on the Creative Cloud app icon in the right sidebar to launch the add-on on open the panel, then select the files you’d like to save to your Creative Cloud account. Click Save to save your attachments to synced files. The maximum allowed file size to save your attachments to Creative Cloud directly is 100MB.
