Working with Assets in Photoshop
Once you’re logged in, you will see the list of Organizations you have access to. Whether you have one or many, you will see icons.
Single-click on the Organization and a blue bounding box around the organization tile will appear.
When the Organization is highlighted, the Accounts dropdown menu will populate with the Accounts you have access to.
Choose the Account you’re looking to access then click Select.
Double-click the Project or Collection, then select the Asset to work on within Photoshop.
Here you can review the markup notes detailed below the image.
Click the 3-dots on the top right corner of the asset.
Click Open in Photoshop.
Confirm if you want the asset to open with globaledit markup layers and select Open.
The markup layers will show up as individual layers under the (GE Markup Layer) folder.
The color of the status in globaledit will reflect as the color of the layer in Photoshop.
Returning to the globaledit Plugin
Launch Photoshop from your computer.
Go to Plugins on the top menu bar. Go to globaledit > globaledit.
Saving an Asset to globaledit
When you’re ready to upload your asset back into globaledit as a version, go to the globaledit plugin.
On the asset screen, click the 3-dots in the right hand corner.
Click Upload Version.
Update the filename per your retouching workflow if needed. Versions do not require the same filename.
By checking the box, you can remove the globaledit markup layers on your version. By keeping it unchecked, the markup layers will be saved along with all the other layers.
The speed of the upload and preview generation will depend on the size of the asset and local internet speeds. In globaledit, the preview will appear when it is fully uploaded and available.
When available, the asset will appear in globaledit as the source asset.
To review all versions of the asset, double-click on the asset to access the 1up view. On the film strip below, click the number on the right hand edge of the asset to expand and review all versions.
