Adobe Express Beta Overview

Adobe has yet again revamped the digital design landscape with their Adobe Express Beta release. The Express suite of features makes content creation and remixing easier than ever, catering to popular platforms like LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter. If you're a social media marketer, content creator, or designer, this platform could revolutionize your workflow. It is an extensive app, combining many tools in the design process into a centralized location so let’s take a look at what it has to offer.

Check it Out

  • New all-in-one editor gives users the ability to make high-impact design elements, engaging videos and images, stunning documents and PDFs, animations, and standout content ready for Instagram, TikTok and all their favorite channels and platforms. The new editor empowers users to design content with text, graphics, images, videos, animations and audio.
  • New video, multiple page templates, and design elements bring even more inspiration to the largest collection of beautiful, high-quality content, now with nearly 200 million assets including video and design templates, royalty-free Adobe Stock images, video and audio assets, almost 22,000 fonts, plus more icons, backgrounds and shapes.
  • PDF support in the new all-in-one editor makes it even easier to import, edit and enhance documents to create visually stunning PDFs.
  • Quick actions like remove background in images, animate a character using just audio, convert to GIF, and edit PDFs, makes it even easier to create standout content quickly and simply.
  • Real-time co-creation and seamless review and commenting capabilities add collaboration and speed to the creation process. Easily access, edit and work with creative assets from Photoshop and Illustrator directly within Express, or add linked files that always stay in sync across apps.

First off, integration with Adobe's Creative Cloud means you can access your library files across various applications and folders. In the near future, you will be able to access Express files in the "Your Stuff" section, offering an efficient way to create and share assets with other designers.

Adobe Express also introduces a powerful media manager for stock photos, stock videos, music, and Text to Image generation using Adobe Firefly. This tool streamlines content creation and makes it easy to record voiceovers, manage stock media, and generate captivating text effects.

Adobe Express Beta Templates Overview

For video enthusiasts, the multi-video editing feature with user-friendly multiple timelines is a game-changer. Create professional video collateral with ease and precision, all within a single platform. Currently supports 1080p video. Drag and drop video creation plus all-new video templates, Adobe Stock videos and music at your fingertips helping you to create stunning assets quickly.

The platform provides an exhaustive array of professional templates for your social media and marketing needs. From Instagram reels to YouTube thumbnails, LinkedIn cover photos, and mobile videos, Adobe Express has every digital content need covered.

The collection currently offers thousands of designs with much more coming soon. I imagine that similar to Mircosoft Designer, this tool will offer Ai created templates allowing for unlimited combinations, but we will have to wait to the final release to see.

Personally I have enjoyed the seamless saving function in Adobe Express. Whether you accidentally close your browser or unexpectedly need to jump on another task, Adobe Express has got you covered. The platform saves your work in real-time, allowing you to pick up where you left off as soon as you open the same tab on restart.
