Overview

Wrike's Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud 1 allows you to work with Wrike tasks from Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Premier Pro) and links Adobe file attachments with Wrike tasks. Use the extension to:

  • Access Wrike tasks. The default is to see tasks from My to-do but you can search for and view all tasks that are shared with you.
  • Link Images and upload previews. Creating a link allows you to upload a preview version of the file to Wrike and access the file in its original file type from the extension. If there are multiple artboards in the project file, you can select which ones to upload. Files from InDesign are added to Wrike as PDF files. 
  • Keep track of versioning. Once an image is linked, you can quickly update it and add a new preview version of the file to Wrike.
