- [Instructor] Adobe Capture is a fantastic app for the phone and tablet and it's actually easier to do some things inside this app than it is on the desktop software, and that's saying something. Once you're signed in, this is what you'll be presented with and Capture is formed of six modules. It's those that we'll be exploring in this chapter. We can move between the modules by simply tapping on them, like so, and should you be working inside of a module, here's a color theme, for example, I made earlier.
You'll see there's clear navigation up at the top left to return you back to the main list of modules. Now, most of the modules, when you're using them, default to using the camera, which is the idea, capturing your inspiration on the go. But, we can also use files from Creative Cloud or our camera roll, as well as some other sources too. I'll be using files rather than the camera throughout the course, so you don't have to watch my wobbly camera skills or more truthfully see the mess that my desk is in.
All of the assets created in Capture need to be stored in a Creative Cloud library. Now, you should have the default My Library, but we're going to make a library here so that you can see how easy it is. At the top of the screen, where it should say or is likely to say, My Library, if you tap there, you'll get a list of the libraries that you currently have and you can see I have quite a few in here.
But, you tap the plus at the top right and this starts you making a new library. I'm just going to call this one MAFD, for Mobile Apps for Design. Let's see what I did there, and tap create, and that's it! Your library is made, it's as simple as that, and Creative Cloud will synchronize that across your devices and your desktop software. Even inside here, you can do certain library-based functions.
If we look at the ellipses menu, that's the three dots up on the top right-hand side, you can see that you've got a whole bunch of different choices here. You could rename your library, you could sort it, you can collaborate with others and invite them to use the library assets. You can share a link to a library, which gives them their own version that they can download and then just build on or you can remove them from there. Tapping outside of that dismisses that menu. That's how easy is it.
In the next movie, we're going to start off by making some shapes and you'll find out how easy it is to make vector shapes inside of Adobe Capture.
