Adobe today announced that its flagship Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fresco software has been updated to include support for multi-user document collaboration.

Photoshop Product Manager Pam Clark detailed how this collaboration functions in Adobe's availability announcement blog post. The feature allows both desktop and iPad users of Small Adobe Photoshop iconAdobe Photoshop, Small Adobe Illustrator iconAdobe Illustrator, and Small Adobe Fresco iconAdobe Fresco access management for asynchronous editing the same shared document. However, as Clark's post stipulates, this is limited to asynchronous editing by one user at any given moment.

The files you've set to be shared, as well as those that you have been given access to, can be seen on both the Small Adobe Creative Cloud iconAdobe Creative Cloud desktop software as well as at

In addition to support for collaboration, today's update also included the ability to synchronize Photoshop presets across all of your devices. These presets include brushes, swatches, gradients, patterns, styles and shapes. Additionally, preferences such as folder structure, grouping, and preset order sync across your devices now too. The feature, aptly titled Preset Sync, is available now on Windows and macOS, with the iPad version of Photoshop receiving support for it "soon."
