      FAQ: What are add-ons and how can I learn more about them?

       

       

      Add-ons is a commercial website focused on plug-ins and extensions with integration in various CC apps and the Creative Cloud desktop app. It enables distribution of resources and software that enrich a member’s experience and enhance their favorite tools.

      Producers: Design and develop the add-ons to share them publicly or privately. They sell, promote, and measure their products, and can make them available on the Add-ons website.

      End users: They use the add-ons to enhance and enrich the features in Adobe applications. They can search, discover, install, and update new content and capabilities for Adobe products.

      All Creative Cloud users should move to the Creative cloud Desktop application to install Add-ons.

      • 2015 users MUST use the Creative Cloud Desktop application to install Add-ons.
      • It is still possible for earlier Creative Cloud versions (CC and CC2014) to use Extension Manager CC, but we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you migrate to the new model.

      WARNING Using Extension Manager CC to install any Add-ons in earlier versions can interfere with your ability to install CC2015 Add-ons through the Creative cloud Desktop application. To avoid problems, users of all Creative Cloud versions should begin using the Creative Cloud Desktop application to install Add-ons.
