Collaborating on projects with your colleagues can prove to be a challenge. More often than not, you’re busy replying to e-mails.

However, working together with your colleagues in Adobe is not as tough as one might think. In our latest blog post, we lifted a corner of the veil of all that Adobe has to offer. But, there’s more. Adobe has got your back with some exceptional tools that will keep your team on the same page. Ready to skyrocket your productivity?

Creative Cloud Libraries

Thanks to Creative Cloud Libraries, everything you need to design is available anywhere. From the most important design tools for your brand such as colors and images to fonts, icons and video clips. With this digital library, you can find all your assets in one central place. What’s more, you can create those assets in Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Dreamweaver, Muse or Animate. So, there’s no limit to your creativity.

Creative Cloud Libraries are a must if you want to make your design process way more efficient. Bonus? You can even share your creations with colleagues!

Besides, if you’re working on two or more devices, you no longer have to worry about working on the wrong version. Your digital library automatically syncs your Creative Cloud account so you can work wherever and whenever you want. Whether that may be on your computer, your tablet or your phone: work carefree in the cloud. You even have access to Adobe Stock. A stunning collection of images, videos and vectors for you to use for your creative projects.

Above all, you can even share your assets with your colleagues. Inviting others to collaborate in Adobe is easy. You just have to select their email address and they’ll be notified you invited them to work together. Moreover, you choose what every collaborator can do in your Creative Cloud Libraries. Are they able to edit, add and delete assets? Or are your employees or colleagues only able to view and use read-only versions in your library? It’s all up to you.

In sum, Creative Cloud is the ideal place to store all your Adobe creations together. You get an overview of your team’s favorite items and tools. Besides, you can even share your designs with colleagues!

Linked Assets

When you’re designing, you often use the same assets to create a consistent image and brand for your organization. However, it often happens you’re refining your design, and only minutes before you finish it, you find out that the asset used is not the latest version. We understand. Incredibly frustrating.

With Linked Assets, you can easily create your own library filled with your favorite assets and designs. Syncing with Creative Cloud is also extremely easy!

With Adobe’s latest feature, called Linked Assets, this problem will soon vanish into thin air. How, you might think? Well, the feature lets you use the same assets or symbols across all your documents. Furthermore, whenever you modify an asset, Linked Assets notifies you’ve made changes to something that is also used in other documents. Then, that asset is updated across all documents, leaving you with a single source of truth across your team. Sounds refreshing, right?

Besides, sharing your designs with colleagues has even become easier with Linked Assets. You can create a central library so others can exactly find what they need to design.

Keeping up with the latest changes has never been easier. No more worrying about the latest versions. No more drama about inconsistent styles across your organization. Thank you Adobe!

InCopy

Just imagine: you need to collaborate in Adobe. We know, that proves to be a challenge. Especially when you want to work with multiple users on the same document at the same time. However, a tool exists that handles the complexity involved with simultaneous collaboration: InCopy.

With InCopy, you select the text or image frames you want to share with the editor. Then, you’ll need to export these images as an InCopy file and assign these objects to a certain user. However, if the editor wants to edit these objects, he needs to purchase and install InCopy. The editor then has full control over the text and make style changes, which are imported from InDesign, or they can make the text fit. Editors can also make adjustments to line breaks and page breaks and to spacing.

There is however a solution that allows you to edit in a more flexible way. The 2imagine solution works on the basis of a workflow: this allows various roles to edit the same InDesign document at the same time. Besides, you don’t need to install anything. You simply need to open your favorite browser and the editing can begin! Moreover, editors can make adjustments to the document by adding or changing images. They can also add new objects or they can translate text, side by side.
