Photoshop’s Share Button

With Adobe’s Creative Cloud you can now have automatic updates, pretty handy, but from time to time something might slip by without you noticing, and this recently happened to me.

Keep an Eye on Photoshop Evangelists!

I’m not sure when but Photoshop was given a share button. The only reason I know is that Paul Trani, Adobe’s Principal Evangelist, shared it on his Twitter stream.

In the Tweet Paul mentions that you can share to your mobile device and has a screen grab of a Mac sharing via Airdrop, but there’s much more to it.

Where Can You Share to From Photoshop?

On a PC when you first use the share button you’re given the option to add contacts, handy if you collaborate with people often or you have a client you’d like to send work in progress to and, and you can set up a Bluetooth or Wifi link to another device.

On a Mac things are a little different. Although you haven’t got the Apps and Get More Apps like the Windows version there is a much easier way to share.

I found that I had a lot more success from Airdrop than I did with Wifi or bluetooth.

My Experience

I really found that sharing images to Mobile apps through Airdrop an absolute breeze. I’ve been saving to Creative Cloud then downloading on the mobile device. Now i can just send it straight to my phone and share it.

What Do You Think?

It’s early days so I’d really like to know how you’ve got on with the share button. Do you use it regularly? For what?
