How do I transfer files between Adobe Photoshop touch and my adobe creative suite applications on my mackintosh computer? I do not want to pay for additional adobe cloud services. In addition I have concerns over the privacy of adobe's cloud for certain images. As a retired plastic surgeon, I have used Photoshop for years to help with public and patient education. Final posted images can have privacy concerns addressed. I do understand that I can transfer a single layer from Photoshop touch back to the computer by mail or camera roll. procreate has a Photoshop export tool.


Where is Photoshop touches export tool? if the only tool is through the additional monthly charges of the cloud, you are alienating loyal Adobe customers.

    Hi Dr. Bermant,


    The process consists of uploading the project to the Cloud from within PS Touch. In the view within PS Touch with all the thumbnails of the various projects there is an option along the top to upload to the Creative Cloud. You sign in with you Adobe ID. On your Mac you can open the Creative Cloud site in a browser at From there you would download the same project you uploaded from the tablet. The last step is to just open project Photoshop. It has to be Photoshop CS5 or later and it requires installing a plug-in in Photoshop first to do so. There are some more instructions here:


    Anyone with an Adobe ID gets a 2GB free account. Let me know if you have questions.
