With our Adobe integration, you can connect your Image Relay Library directly to Adobe's Illustrator application. Create new files in Illustrator and save them to Image Relay, or open up files directly from Image Relay, edit, and save them back.

Installing the Adobe Extension

Before you can use the extension, you will need to add it to your Adobe application and create an API key in Image Relay.

You can find detailed instructions on creating an API key in this article.

To download the Adobe extension, please contact sales@imagerelay.com.

Once you have installed the extension and created an API key, you will be prompted to enter the API key the first time you open the extension in Illustrator.

Opening Files in Illustrator

Once you are logged into your Image Relay library, You will have the option to browse the folders and assets in your library, or use the search and refine tools:

When you find the asset you need, you will have the option to open it as a layer or on its own:

You also have the option to create a new file in Illustrator, and then save it to Image Relay, instead of opening an existing Image Relay file.

Saving Files to Image Relay

Before saving a file to Image Relay, you will need to save the file you are working on, otherwise known as the "active file," to your network or desktop. If you do not do this, you will not be able to save it to Image Relay. This can be a temporary location, you do not need to keep the original once it has been uploaded.

Once you have saved it locally, you will be able to hit the "Save active file to Image Relay" button. The active file is the file that you are currently viewing in Illustrator.
