    How do I use themes with Adobe Illustrator®, Photoshop®, InDesign®, Fireworks®, and Flash® Professio

      Creative Cloud users can access all their themes directly within Illustrator CC. To access your themes, open the Color panel by choosing Window > Color Themes.  You can also access your themes and create new ones in the latest version of Adobe Ideas, Adobe Draw, Adobe Line, Adobe Sketch and more.


      For users who prefer to explore and browse themes created by members of the Color community first, we recommend using the web site—where you will find robust search, filter, and browsing capabilities. Once you find something you like, simply mark it as favorite and then refresh your Color panel in Illustrator.


      For Photoshop®, InDesign®, Fireworks®, and Flash® Professional:

      Find the new Color panel by choosing Window > Extension > Color Themes . This new panel displays all of your public themes.


      For users working on older versions of Adobe software (CS4, & CS5), Color themes can also be downloaded for use in Adobe software using the Adobe Swatch Exchange (.ase) format. To download a theme from Color, first make sure you’re signed in. Click on the theme you’d like and click Download. This downloads the theme as an .ase file to the location of your choice.


      Note: The Kuler panel is no longer supported in CS2 and CS3.
