There are plenty of free features; they’re just what you need for quick, on-the-go editing and fun effects.

You have to pay to access the most powerful Photoshop Express features. However, after you upgrade, the first three days are free. You won't be charged as long as you cancel within that time frame.

Our take

It’s extremely easy to get started, and there are plenty of free tools. Even without upgrading, there are many options for improving your photos, adding stickers or effects, and creating a collage.
