Photo editing apps are all the rage now, but before selfies and fancy filters, Adobe had established itself as the king of photo editing tools. Professional-grade applications like Lightroom and Photoshop are amazing for creating images that pop.

However, those pro applications have a steep learning curve and not everyone has the patience to master them. Sometimes, you only need a good photo editing app that delivers high-quality effects with minimal effort.

That’s where the Adobe Photoshop Express app comes in.

This is how the Adobe Photoshop Express app works

To get started with the app, you first need to download it to your mobile device. Adobe Photoshop Express is available on both iOS and Android, so you can get it on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, depending on your device.

You can also get the download link at the end of this article.

Once you have the app, open it and select a photo from your image gallery. You can then choose from a variety of photo editing tools to enhance your picture.

You can crop your picture, transform it, or use the auto-enhance tool. Not only that, but you can also pick from the selection of filters to give your picture a different look. Change the size or add text to your image.

Key features of Photoshop Express

Remove background: We all have those photos in our image gallery. Do you know those with the ugly backgrounds? Photoshop Express allows you to swap the background in your photo for something more palatable.

Resize image: Want to make your image smaller without compromising the quality? You can use the app to do just that.

Add filters: Filters have become a huge part of the selfie culture. Beyond that, they give expression to your images and help to enhance them.

Retouch images: Use Photoshop Express to touch up your images and get rid of unwanted bits for clearer and sharper pictures.

There’s a lot more you can do with the Adobe Photoshop Express app. It is worth noting though that some of these are advanced features that are only available in the premium plan.

About the price of Adobe Photoshop Express

What we really like about this app is the cost, which is nothing. Adobe Photoshop Express is free to download and free to use. You will need an Adobe account to use this app, but that’s also free.

A slight problem we have is the premium plan and the fact that some features are locked behind that. The app offers a monthly and yearly subscription plan for users who want to access advanced features.

While offering a premium plan is not such a bad thing, it becomes an issue if those features are available elsewhere for free.


So, several apps offer similar features as Photoshop Express. Of course, none offers the same clout that is associated with Photoshop. However, it is important to note that even though they belong to the same family, Photoshop Express is NOT Photoshop.

With that out of the way, we’ll list some free and paid alternatives to Photoshop Express.

  • Picsart (free)
  • Snapseed (free)
  • Canva (free with paid plan)
  • Gimp
  • PicMonkey
  • Photoshop (paid)
  • Lightroom (paid)
