Why should I use CC Libraries in InDesign?

Okay in this video, we're going to look at CC libraries. I love them. You've been probably avoiding them for a long time. They're amazing. Let's get to use them because we're going to add things like this logos and images and colors and it's going to mean we can use them in other in design documents. But also look, they appear the same in foot shop and illustrator in after effects and all the other lovely adobe products. Let's go and learn how to use them. Okay, so first thing we need to do is make sure you can see your CC libraries. It's under window CC libraries. Let's make a new library. I'm going to keep this one that I've got. But if you've skipped the early tutorial we did when we made our colors, you'll have to go to this little drop down. It's probably gonna say in my library it's the one you get by default down the bottom here says create a new library. Okay. Created, give it a name. I've called migrated heart for this client that I'm working for now. Let's say we've added the...

se colors earlier. But let's say you skip that. Let's say that maybe there's just a new color that's appeared. Okay. So what you do is I've drawn a rectangle and it's filled with some random color that I now want to include in part of my swatches. The way to do it is have it selected with the black arrow. Okay. And what we can do is see this little plus sign at the bottom here. Okay, so I'm in my green at heart library. I want to add something to it and you can see here is graphic and full color graphics are actually going to add the square itself. I don't need that square. I just need to fill color click add for just that field color. If I have them both selected, let me show you if I had the graphic as well, I get a rectangle. That's cool means that later on I can drag out the exact same rectangle and use it over and over again. That might be useful for you. I don't want him so I can click on him. Hit the little trash can by by two of these colors now. Goodbye. It's got an ugly color. I don't want Goodbye. So that's how to add colors. Other things you can add. Okay, and probably the most useful is images. There's this image here and I'm going to add it so that I can use it in lots of other documents because this library stays. There doesn't matter what document you have opened. If I go to a new document file, new new documents, click create. You can see these are still here allowing me to quickly grab out colors and stuff. So let's go back to this one. Now, adding images can be interesting. If it's just the image by itself, you can just click hold and drag it in. Okay, But you can see I've dragged it because I've already cropped it and you can see it's dragged a cropped version of it. The image is actually quite big. Okay so what you can do is double click the image. You can kind of start to see it spread out through this red edge here. Okay and that means I've got the whole image selected and down here actually now can I drag it? I can so I have just dragged it by double clicking it and you can see that's the entire image. So I'm gonna don't want this guy. Okay this is my food image. Okay so you can add images that way. Other things you might add. Say there's logo here, I can select it because it's not cropped. I can just drag the whole thing in there. Okay and that's my logo green, you can add blocks of type. Okay so like this one here say this little round all thing I've made, I want to use over and over again. It's something like it's our call to action or our unique selling point. Okay I'm gonna click and hold and drag it. You can see the whole unit comes with me. So if I go to this next document and I go I want to quickly build a thing. I can drag out april page, I can go up the top here. Okay And I can click on filling it with the green. Actually dark green, drag the logo out. I can add my image and this little round all thing, you can see how quickly you can start building extra documents because you've got everything in this library gets even better. Okay, if you jump out to another adobe products so I jump into say photoshopped. Okay, I'm working on this and say I need that color. Or you can see this is another library that I'm working on. But if I switch to this one here, where is he? Mm Green at heart. You can see he's in this one as well. So I can use them across all these documents. Here you go. I'm not sure why this drawing that I've done needs round balls and stuff, but you get the point point right? You can go between any adobe products. So I use this a lot between say my video work and after effects and premiere or my graphic design work out of Photoshop and illustrator. They all use the same libraries. One last thing to consider is that say you are a freelancer or you're getting a freelancing role or it means that when you sign into another computer and you use your adobe ID D. These libraries will pre populate. So if I go into an office and they say dan, I want you to do some work with us and you're gonna use our machine. So I jump on the machine. And even if they don't have a license for it. I can download the trial and log in with my user name and I. D. Okay you can have it installed on more than one computer when it opens up, the trial version becomes a full version because I'm a paying customer and all my libraries pre populate with the stuff that I use. Okay, so that can be really handy when you're switching machines. It all syncs up and it also does cool things with some of the adobe apps. Go check out the app store. There are some cool things that libraries work with them to. Okay so libraries are awesome. You've probably seen them in lots of adobe products and ignored them start using them because they are wicked. Wicked is not the word. I take that back. They are awesome. Well great. Not working. Alright, terrible. Ending over next video please.
