What's New in Adobe Express: February 2022
At the launch of Adobe Express in December, I shared our commitment to listening to your feedback and incorporating these requests into the app’s feature roadmap. As we continue to grow and evolve Adobe Express, our focus stays on helping you quickly and easily express your ideas.
We’re working to make Adobe Express your one stop shop for standout content that does just that. Keeping these various priorities in mind, our aim this February was to increase your efficiency across key areas in the app.
New mobile quick actions
We’ve been working hard to bring the features and functionality already available on the Adobe Express web app to the mobile app. We’re starting by adding the quick actions that are most relevant and useful for use on mobile devices. Earlier this month, we added the Convert to GIF quick action to the iOS and Android apps so you can make GIFs right on your phone.
Mobile includes tablets, too. All the quick actions available on phones — Resize Image, Remove Background, and the new Convert to GIF — are now available on iPad. Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about Android fans. Soon, you’ll have the same mobile quick actions available on your Android tablet.
Finally, we’ve expanded mobile quick actions to all languages. No matter if you use the Adobe Express mobile app in French, Japanese, or any other language that the app supports, you can use quick actions to create stellar content right on your phone or iPad.
Features to efficiently make content
Our new Discover panel located in the top left corner of the Adobe Express editor on web enables you to easily search across all asset types including templates, Adobe Stock photos, design assets, and text. The Discover panel will help you find the piece of content your project needs — whether you’ve already decided how you’d like to convey your message, or you need additional inspiration to pull it all together.
Finally, this month we launched three new PDF quick actions: Combine files, Organize pages, and Edit text & images so you can efficiently complete your document tasks without leaving the app.
These quick actions can help make your work easier for various types of projects. For example, build proposals by combining various file types like images, Excel tables, and Word docs. Make quick edits like updating prices on a menu or changing a date on an event flyer or resize an image in the document.
User experience updates and what’s coming
You may have also spotted some additional improvements to the experience within Adobe Express. This month, we worked on enhancing the ease and clarity of working with backgrounds and saving projects.
As we round the corner into March, we’re focused on small changes that will make a big impact to Adobe Express. You’ve let us know how you like to work in the app — and improvements that would help speed up your projects. We’re working on ways to incorporate this feedback on productivity and speed without sacrificing your ability to be creative. Keep an eye out for more quick actions, usability improvements, and easy methods for scaling how you make content.
As always, I want to hear your feedback on the new features that you’d like developed in Adobe Express. If you have a specific feature request or feedback, please submit your suggestions on the Adobe Express UserVoice page. See you back here in March for more updates on our feature roadmap. Until then, keep up the creativity.
