Libris Creative Cloud Connector Installation
With the Libris CC Connector for Adobe Creative Cloud, you can drag and drop Libris files directly into InDesign, Photoshop, or Illustrator.
You can place Libris files directly into your InDesign layouts, browse your Libris account, search, and toggle between the low and high resolution versions of the files; without leaving InDesign.
You can open images stored in Libris, make edits, and save your changes back to Libris by replacing the original, or uploading the edited image as a new file.
