I’m responding to Chloe McConnell, weren’t all the files accesible from Creative Cloud storage already across all platforms?
Edit: I’m trying to look around for people who asked for this migration which seems to be either nonexistent or a very low number of them. Pulling assets from CC storage was already easy, everyone that has paid access to Adobe apps has paid storage. To remove that paid access to our own storage through Spark is unnecessary.
Edit 2: the link for Libraries in Chloe’s reply doesn’t even work! Just like this update/migration that wasn’t needed.
The huge downside of migrating to Libraries is you can’t organize assets into separate groups or folders. You have to create a whole new Library! And to have several to scroll through doesn’t make any sense. You were able to access all of your files from web, mobile, and desktop by using the CC application and the native OS folder it creates so I don’t understand how this is true? I’m surprised that more people haven’t spoken up about how this has changed the workflow entirely. I just had my Spark app updated on my iPhone and it removed the access to CC storage. Using Libraries is a redundancy. And again it’s not efficient because if you have hundreds or even just dozens of assets such as PNGs and logos and custom created backgrounds, they can’t be organized within a Library they’re all just dumped in there.
Apologies for that frustrating experience, Josh. You are right, we did migrate onto Creative Cloud Libraries (https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/libraries.html).
The benefit of moving to CC Libraries is so you can access your files from web (assets.adobe.com), mobile (CCL app) and desktop (CC desktop app). It also allows your Libraries to be share across Creative Cloud products including Spark - so next time you need to manage or pull assets, you can do so more easily.
