Add Content to a Library from the Creative Cloud Market

Adobe Creative Cloud Market is accessible from the Creative Cloud desktop application or from within Adobe Sketch, and contains thousands of royalty-free design elements like icons, wireframes, charts, vector shapes, patterns, backgrounds, and brushes. The market has new content added all the time, and can be a great way to kick off a project or add smaller design elements to an existing project.

In order to access the Market, open the Creative Cloud desktop application and go to the Assets > Market section of the app. You can search for assets based on criteria like category, keyword, and more.

Once you find the asset you’d like, you can click the download button and either choose a synced Library you have, or create a new Library that is synced everywhere you can access the Libraries (including Illustrator and Photoshop), as shown in Figure 9.

After the asset has been downloaded, you will usually see a notification indicating so. The downloaded asset is placed in the Creative Cloud Files > Market Downloads folder on your hard drive. You can then go to an application like Illustrator or Photoshop (or a mobile app) and see the new asset in the selected Library (see Figure 10). You will notice that most of the market assets are either PSD, PNG, or SVG (if it’s vector).
