Indesign linking from cloud servers (DAM)

Silicon Connector is a revolutionary yet simply powerful extension to the Adobe Creative Cloud that enables direct linking from InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator to Cloud-based assets on web servers or in DAMs.

Before Silicon Connector, Adobe InDesign could only make asset links to the file system or a shared drive.

Cloud-based workflows for Adobe

No longer. Built by some of the same engineers who built Adobe InDesign, Silicon Connector realizes the dream of true Cloud-based workflows, not only for InDesign but now for Photoshop and Illustrator as well.

After you’ve installed Silicon Connector, simply drag and drop Cloud-based assets into your Creative Cloud documents and direct links are automatically created. With InDesign, when any linked asset is updated on the web server or DAM, the corresponding InDesign asset is also updated. Automatically.

In Photoshop and Illustrator, a more primitive (yet effective) navigation and check-in/check-out is supported: single assets are selected from the DAM for editing, and checked back into the DAM at the end of the editing session.

You can connect your files on the cloud to your InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop files to ensure consistency and brand integrity.

Your Content, Connected from your DAM to Indesign

While any version of Silicon Connector supports assets on generic web servers, there are specific versions of Silicon Connector supporting all of the Digital Asset Management and Cloud Storage systems shown above. 

Around the Corner, Across the Globe

Connector revolutionizes collaborative workflows for InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. No longer are you forced to download files, link to local copies, or resort to cumbersome packaging, uploading, and re-linking when you want to share or update your documents and graphics.

Instead, Connector makes it easy: using InDesign as the command center with referenced assets in Photoshop and Illustrator, you just distribute the InDesign file, and leave the assets on your DAM or Cloud where they belong. As long as your colleague has Connector and access rights, the InDesign links simply work. If needed, you can still package it all up and distribute massive zip files the old-fashioned way. But why, when Connector makes it so easy?

This short video is a great overview of just how Silicon Connector works. It happens to feature AEM Assets, but Silicon Connector works similarly for all the DAMs we partner with.
