If you’re not busy with photo and video on a daily basis, the Adobe Creative Cloud offering is likely to be far too extensive, complex and expensive. Adobe now seems to understand this and is launching Adobe Creative Cloud Express, a basic version to make editing photos and videos more accessible. So you can easily get started with tools like multiple layers, AI effects and a huge font library.
The new application focuses on simplicity and speed, aimed at social media managers, SMEs and anyone who comes into contact with photos and videos but is not a professional graphic designer. So you can start with the pre-designed templates to quickly create a Facebook post, an Instagram story, restaurant menu, and so on.
