Unlock the power of Adobe Express with the free membership. Assign it to everyone in your organization — marketing professionals, designers, internal communicators, and sales teams — at no extra cost.

To accept the offer, select Get Started on the Free Membership offer card in the Adobe Admin Console.

About the offer

If your organization has at least one Creative Cloud for enterprise subscription, you can assign the free membership to users. The membership includes the free version of Adobe Express and more. Single Sign-On (SSO) identity authentication ensures that all creative assets and projects created in the apps stay securely within the company.

Adobe Express is an easy-to-use, web-based tool that helps users put their best work forward and make content in a way that's simple, intuitive, and fast:

  • Turn boring text-heavy documents and PDFs into eye-catching collateral with quick and intuitive one-click edit features to resize images, remove backgrounds, and change texts. ​
  • ​Jumpstart the creation of social media content, flyers, and videos with thousands of professionally designed templates and design assets.​
  • ​Stay on-brand with easy access to approved design elements and logos for use across Adobe and Microsoft apps.

Free membership also includes the following services to help users create and collaborate effectively:

Firefly instantly generates extraordinary results from a simple description with generative AI. Also, it's designed to be safe for commercial use.

Acrobat free online services help you securely view, share, fill out and sign, collaborate, annotate, and comment on PDFs on desktop, web, and mobile, as well as in integrations with Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and other extensions.

Creative Cloud Libraries let you gather design elements for use within any Creative Cloud app so you can keep your work consistent by sharing the same elements throughout a project's lifecycle.

Adobe Stock free collection gives access to thousands of royalty-free photos, videos, illustrations, and vector graphics.

Creative Cloud assets allow access to Creative Cloud content where users can open, review, and comment on shared Indesign and XD files.

Adobe Fonts help business users find the perfect fonts for their projects including PDFs, design projects, video content, webpages, and more.

  • Upload a list of users as a CSV file.  In the Product Profile column of the CSV file, enter the following text:
    Creative Cloud for enterprise - free membership
  • Use the User Sync tool to sync user and group information from your organization’s enterprise directory system.

You can also restrict or enable services that free membership users can access.
