Wouldn't it be great if you could access some Blender Cloud content directly from within Blender? Now you can! In the following video, Sybren demonstrates how to use the new Blender Cloud Texture Library add-on!

## How does it work
Download the [Zip Bundle](https://storage.googleapis.com/institute-storage/addons/blender_cloud-1.1.0-bundle.zip), then install and activate the Blender ID and Blender Cloud add-ons. The Blender Cloud add-on is still in testing, so make sure you enable the testing filter to see it in the list.

In order to browse the texture library, you need to log in via the Blender ID add-on. The Blender ID add-on allows you to connect your Blender with your [Blender ID](https://www.blender.org/id/) account. If you don't have an account, you can [get one for free here](https://www.blender.org/id/register).

That's it! If you have a Blender Cloud subscription, you can press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+A and you'll be able to browse the Blender Cloud Texture Library.

## Coming soon: your own texture library
We hope that you will find the content of the Blender Cloud Texture Library useful! Of course we understand that it would be even better if you could upload your own private collection of textures. We are working on it right now.
