Adobe and Google Cloud have announced an integration between Adobe’s Creative Cloud and Gmail to make it easier to share and collaborate on projects.
Adobe recognizes that, while newer methods of collaboration may be gaining in popularity, email remains one of the most popular forms of business communication, with some 1.5 billion active users worldwide. Gmail is one of the most popular email platforms, making integration between the two services a natural fit.
“We’ve now launched the Adobe Creative Cloud for Gmail Add-on on the G Suite Marketplace,” writes Minson Chen in a company blog post. “Now you can 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.”
The add-on is designed to work directly within Gmail, letting users add files from their Creative Cloud to their 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,” adds Chen.
“Sharing Creative Cloud assets with your team just got much easier. The add-on is readily available from the Gmail compose window. Just 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 add-on also makes it easy to save attachments received via Gmail directly to a user’s Creative Cloud. Overall, this feature should be a welcome addition for Adobe users and make collaboration considerably easier and more streamlined.
