Iconik and Adobe CC Integration
Please read through the following documentation to understand how iconik integrates with Adobe Creative Cloud products by using their panel architecture.
We support direct integration with certain Adobe Creative Cloud applications to enable users to quickly search, find and use assets in iconik and upload the generated assets back into iconik. This integration works directly within the supported Adobe application so that users do not have to switch away from the product.

General Information about uploading and downloading
iconik is a cloud application, and usually most of the assets that you have in iconik will live on cloud storage. To work with the files that you have in iconik, the Adobe panel will download any file that you wish to use to your local computer. It is downloaded to a iconik directory, underneath your user's documents directory.
Uploading from your Adobe Application will upload to iconik's cloud storage. Some applications will also render out the file and then upload. Please make sure to keep the Adobe Application open until the asset has been created with a preview in iconik.
- Downloading and uploading is bandwidth dependant, if you have a slow internet connection or metered connection please be aware that large files might take some time
An alternative to always uploading and downloading assets is to use iconik's Storage Gateway. This monitors your local storage for files, and can make them available to iconik without the need of transferring up and down using the cloud.
