This blog should be used by staff at Teesside University who previously created content using the original version of Adobe Creative Cloud Express (2022/23 academic year) and would now like to migrate ALL of their files/projects to gain access to them via the new version of Express. 

Adobe has been working towards a new and updated version of Express for some time now and it is finally here!  With the new version of Express now live, older versions are being retired (including the mobile app versions available on the various platforms).

Adobe plans to automatically migrate all users’ previously saved content to the new version of Express. However, at the present time, there is no set date for this process to take place.  Users can manually migrate individual files/projects, this process is repetitive and time-consuming.

Use the following steps to batch-move all of your previous content quickly and easily.

  1. To access the new version of Adobe Express go to
