How do I use themes with Adobe Illustrator®, Photoshop®, InDesign®, Fireworks®, and Flash® Professio

Creative Cloud users can access all their themes directly within Illustrator CC. To access your themes, open the Color panel by choosing Window > Color Themes.  You can also access your themes and create new ones in the latest version of Adobe Ideas, Adobe Draw, Adobe Line, Adobe Sketch and more.

For users who prefer to explore and browse themes created by members of the Color community first, we recommend using the web site—where you will find robust search, filter, and browsing capabilities. Once you find something you like, simply mark it as favorite and then refresh your Color panel in Illustrator.

For Photoshop®, InDesign®, Fireworks®, and Flash® Professional:

Find the new Color panel by choosing Window > Extension > Color Themes . This new panel displays all of your public themes.

For users working on older versions of Adobe software (CS4, & CS5), Color themes can also be downloaded for use in Adobe software using the Adobe Swatch Exchange (.ase) format. To download a theme from Color, first make sure you’re signed in. Click on the theme you’d like and click Download. This downloads the theme as an .ase file to the location of your choice.

Note: The Kuler panel is no longer supported in CS2 and CS3.

1. In InDesign CC, kuler menu is in Window > Extensions menu.

2. On Kuler Website,  Download ase option is present in theme hover menu and on the 1-up page (see screenshot below ). You need to Sign-in to download a theme as .ase file.

3. Download ASE option is not present on devices which don't support .ase file format e.g. iPad. Which browser & OS are you using ?

None of my public themes are syncing; in fact, nothing is syncing between my online Creative Cloud, my Adobe programs and/or files on my Macbook Pro and my iPhone/iPad apps. None of it are syncing at all. Been like this for months. Can't seem to get any help from Adobe support either. Any advice?

I can't get this to work at all.

I am in CC programs. There is no Kuler in my InDesign WIndow menu? Also When I go to the Kuler website the only download option downloads as an html link. I cannot get an ase which I need. I have done the Lynda.com tutorials but the Kuler website does not look the same as in the tutorials. I do not have the Download as ASE file button.

I went to the adobe site but could not find anything helpful there.

HELP!

Hi Neha,

Thank you for your help.

I found it now and have downloaded. In am on OS Mountain Lion.

For your info I could not even easily find the Kuler website on the adobe site it took me ages to figure it out. It is off to the right hand side as if it is a test version. I found this so unintuitive.

I was looking through my CC link and everywhere. Why doesn't it appear in the CC link with all the other apps?

I am creating a style guide for a client and want to have a simple system for them to have their corporate palette supplied in.

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Robyn

Hi Again,

One more question. Can you make a Kuler palette in PMS (Pantone) colours as it was not available.

Please try this:

  1. Open your swatches palette in Ai.
  2. Click the flyout menu and choose "Swatch Library menu"
  3. Select  "Other Library..."
  4. When prompted, navigate to the ASE file you downloaded from Kuler
  5. Your swatch will now be accessible in Ai.

Hi Dave,

This is great news and I really appreciate it.

Could this same feature be implemented in MUSE for our webdesigns?

It would be great.

Thanks,

Hello,

I can not find the plug in "Kuler" in extensions that are either Photoshop or Illustrator InDesign.

Even through Adobe Exchange.

I'm having this same problem. Kuler and Mini Bridge used to be in under Window>Extensions but they are no longer there, and looking for them in Adobe Exchange produces no results. Wondering if Adobe could just put them in the Adobe Exchange for users who are having this issue so they can re-install these extensions or have a link in this thread to reintall these extentions.

Photoshop 14.2.1 x64 - running on Mac OSX Mavericks - have the entire creative suite and always up to date. Kuler shows up in Illustrator, (not under Window>Extensions, just under Window). It's the only place Kuler shows up.

In ordre to use Kuler for éditions/managing swatches, is it planed to add/retrieve "Ase" file support in AdobeBridge and, best in AEM Dam ? It could be really valuable for Corporate use.
