We all love Adobe apps, but most of them don't come cheap. And in general, Adobe doesn't seem to be a fan of giving them away for free. But there's one big exception: Adobe Creative Cloud Express.

Don't get too excited. This is not the same thing as the Adobe Creative Cloud, the mighty software suite that includes Photoshop, Lightroom, After Effects, Premiere Pro and more. That, you have to pay a monthly subscription for.

No, Creative Cloud Express is actually an easy-to-use software tool for people who don't have Photoshop skills and don't have the time or inclination to learn them. To help out in this situation, Creative Cloud Express provides an alternative way to create graphics, web pages, and short videos for social media, easily and quickly. It includes lots of royalty-free templates, photos, images, fonts and icons to get you going, so you don't have to design everything from scratch each time. Until last December (opens in new tab), it was called Adobe Spark.

It's a great app for anyone who wants to create some promotional content for your photography or side project, to share on Facebook, Instagram and other places. And the best news is, the basic version is free, forever.
