I uploaded about 30 photos to creative cloud storage. Now I cannot find a way to download a group or all at the same time. You can select multiples and move to different folders within CC, but can't download multiples. Had I known this before using it, I would have made a zip folder of images. It seems a bit clunky if this is true.

Currently you can only download/share one file at a time, and there isn't the ability to batch download files or download folders. The desire for an action that lets you download and share folders is a popular request right now and has spawned several idea posts (here, here, and here).

A recent CC blog post has hinted at enhanced sharing capabilites coming soon, so hopefully multiple-file actions will come along with that update.

Cheers!

By the way, the links in your post did not lead anywhere.

The Cloud today is a reasonable version 1 product but it's clunky, lacks fundamental features and is a latecomer to a rapidly maturing market. Other offerings currently shine in comparison.

 

Our expectations as consumers are very high because we're used to the Dropboxes (and other superior 3rd party solutions) out there.

 

Adobe has been inundated with feature suggestions and enhancements from users. The more, the better.

 

They might, as they claim, be working on improvements but they've got to get a move on before the Cloud tarnishes its own reputation too much due to lack of (expected) features.

The Jive forum software used by Adobe is creating bad links.

Frankly such basic functionality should not be a new idea.  Seriously.  I have to download 50 pics one at a time.  Painful.

Agreed. It's painful.

I don't understand why Adobe did not include such basic functionality from Day 1 either.

It's a major blemish on an otherwise promising debut for the Cloud in 2012. I assume that Adobe is keenly aware of user expectations here.

I've given up waiting for now and I use Dropbox until the Adobe Cloud improves.

I can't understand why adobe would not implement such a basic feature like batch download. Not having this feature makes adobe look really bad and it makes the creative cloud virtually not usable for many users. I will also make sure that i dont receive links to the adobe cloud anymore to download pictures. Manually downloading tons of pictures is not really a pleasure and for sure not efficient at all. Goodbye adobe

Adobe...seriously??? I can only download ONE file at a time? This is utterly ridiculous! This expensive CC subscription is meant to be better for us professional users? Please get this sorted, it is an absolute JOKE!

Any word on this being updated? This post was from 2012, so I figured I'd ask about it.

You really didn't implement this feature even after 6 years? 6 YEARS??

Here's yours (as a company) reply to the same ask in 2012:

"Currently you can only download/share one file at a time, and there isn't the ability to batch download files or download folders. The desire for an action that lets you download and share folders is a popular request right now and has spawned several idea posts.

How on earth You cannot achieve such basic funcionality? It's just ridiculous...

The solution is easy: Swap to Affinity and use professional Cloud Services. And save a lot of money. Adobe is just fooling us for years. I also just wanted to share a complete folder with hundreds of files to a costumer of mine and couldn't believe it when i found this important request from 2012 (!!!)

Hoo boy. Last night was the first time I used the cloud as well. 60+ retouched images and now I have to download each and every one individually. Well, good time to have coffee.

Or you can reflect upon being a paying beta tester for Adobe while they try to get (numerous) things right. I guess one could do that while having coffee also though. 😉

Hey I actually discovered they is an adobe client you can install to make your cloud files appear as a network drive on your computer.  Install the automatic software installer and its on there I think.

Sounds like that has potential. But what's it called? Couldn't see anything in the apps or the software installer panel of the sort. Anyone else know about that?

Gotcha. Did some investigating into it (since it still doesn't show up on my App Manager). Turns out they released a preview like 6 months ago but took it offline just recently while they're working on an actual release. No go for me. Well let's see what happens when they launch. Thanks for the tip!

That is the link for the app installer for all the apps.  You have to use that to install it I believe.   You obviously need to be logged in and it may be easier to download it from creative cloud with the link in your apps section for the installer.  It will run in your system tray and you will have a network drive with your data and you can drag and drop.

There is a mac creative cloud application now! I apologize if someone already replied to you saying this.

Once the creative cloud folder synced, the files were downloaded onto my desktop without having to click on each individual file download. Screenshots are attached. Screen Shot 2015-11-13 at 2.46.27 PM.pngScreen_Shot_2015-11-13_at_2_46_41_PM.jpg
