How to edit a photo with online Photoshop tools in Adobe Express.

Upload your photos.
Upload your image from your own photo library or select a stock image to feature in your design. Select a single image or choose multiple photos to create a photo collage—don’t worry, even in photo collages, you’ll be able to edit each photo individually.
Adjust your images.
Select the photo to access the editing menu options. Under the Filters tab, you can add depth and style with preset filters. The Enhance option helps you finetune your photos with sliders for contrast, brightness, saturation, warmth, or sharpening. Play with the Blur effect for transforming your image, and pair it with the Remove Background tool to create perspective. Lastly, explore with Crop & Shape to rotate, scale, nudge, or flip your photo until the perfect composition is achieved.
Resize your photos.
Once you’ve reached the perfect edit for your photo or design, choose the Resize tool and a world of photo formatting options is at your fingertips. Select from social post sizes, social media profile photo sizes, print options, and other standard photo sizes. Adobe Express is your one-stop-shop for resizing your images, from Instagram and LinkedIn to your block party poster or holiday greeting card.
