Adobe has just announced that from now on it will be possible to edit documents collaboratively in three of its main design tools: Photoshop, Illustrator and Fresco. The new function allows to invite to edit from any device.
Whether you use Photoshop on the Windows desktop or macOS, or Illustrator on your iPad or Adobe Fresco on the iPhone, now you can add collaborators to edit a shared cloud document, one by one.
Access to your shared documents in the cloud from the Creative Cloud app
Collaboration enables asynchronous editing on all platforms where applications are available, it’s just a matter of save your .PSD or .AI files as cloud documents and send invitations for others to edit.
You can also edit the files that have been shared with you, and you will have access to all of them from assets.adobe.com or from the Creative Cloud desktop application in the “Your Work” section.
In the case of Photoshop you need to update to desktop version 22.2. To take advantage of collaborative editing you only need open a document in Photoshop and click on the new icon “Invite to edit” that appears in the upper right corner of the application:
Once the dialog box is open, you will have to write the email addresses of the people you want to collaborate with. You will always have to save the project as a Photoshop cloud document in order to invite someone to edit. In the invitation you can add an additional message if you wish.
Once the recipients are invited, all collaborators can be seen in the Members section of the Invite to Edit dialog. At any time you can abandon the edition or remove collaborators from the document. Collaborative document editing is compatible with Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fresco for desktop and iPad.
