Create a New Library

Aside from using the default “My Library” Library, you can also create your own. I find that I create a new Library for project work with clients. It’s an easy way to organize and share all of the design content with each piece of the project and with other members on your team.

To create a new Library, you can choose Create New Library from the Libraries menu at the top of the Libraries panel (see Figure 7). You then give it a name and start adding content to it. Later on, you can easily change the name of a Library by selecting the Library and then choosing Rename “Library Name” from the Libraries panel menu (in the upper-right corner).

Libraries can also be created (and accessed) in several of the Adobe apps for iOS (currently only iOS). Figure 8 shows an example of creating a Library in Adobe Brush on my iPad. You can also access the Libraries you’ve created in apps like Illustrator and Photoshop and add content you create to them. I also created a brush in the Adobe Brush app called “Rock” that will be available in Adobe Sketch (in Adobe Brush, you have to choose which app you can use the brush in: Sketch, Illustrator, or Photoshop).

Once you create a new Library, it is synced with the Creative Cloud, and content can be added to it within the mobile apps, Illustrator, Photoshop, Adobe Market, and more.
