Adobe Creative Cloud connector installation guide

The Adobe Creative Cloud connector is an add-on feature. Contact your Account Manager to add it to your subscription.

With the connector for Adobe Creative Cloud, designers can drag and drop assets into Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, or Adobe Illustrator directly from Acquia DAM.
