Same issue here. I'd love to be able to find this again. Was very useful for me in the previous version of Adobe Express and Spark. I've wasted way to much time looking for it today. I can't seem to switch back to the previous version of Express, like I have done in previous weeks / months.
We hope to bring back support for Collages/grids very soon (https://adobeexpress.uservoice.com/forums/951181-adobe-express/suggestions/46769416-can-no-longer-fi...). Also note that collages/grids in any existing projects you created in the previous version work just fine in the new version.
Hope this helps
Just bring back the old version Abhi.G. We don't need an update for something that worked well for us.
It's horrible that the Collage Maker was suddenly deleted. It's a tool I've used weekly to make rectangular photo collages based on an arbitrary number of source photos, where the application would automatically generate a layout. The only comparable functionality I'm seeing in Adobe Express requires picking an original collage with the correct number of cels and manually replacing all the photos in it. Aargh!
I will never understand why on earth you took away the collage maker!! That's like the only thing I used in Adobe Express. Why take away something good for no reason at all and piss off your paying customers??? Just bring it back for heaven's sake!
I agree with everyone else. I also wasted a lot of time today looking for the feature in the beta version. Fixing the missing collage feature should be treated as a high priority or allow us to revert to the older version.
I'm glad i'm not the only one freaking out... What in the world are y'all thinking? What a strange decision... Someone must have blindly pressed some buttons, clocked in some hours and went home. How embarassing.
Adobe really made a mistake with this one! BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It does not work just fine with my existing projects!
They do not work AT ALL in the new version
Could you please provide more details? If you had an existing project that used a grid/collage, and it was converted over the new version of Express, it what ways are you finding the grids/collages not working fine. A screenshot or screen-recording would help.
Collage maker was the best feature, the only reason I used express. Who thought it was a good idea to remove? Please bring back should be pretty straight forward to add it back. Can be done in 24 hours.
Using the grids from your exisiting projects does not work just fine because you are stuck using only those grids. If you need a new grid, too bad. Plus, it just feels so clunky -- you can't resize, recrop, etc.
Thanks for responding.
> If you need a new grid, too bad
Yes, this is a limitation. Understood.
> you can't resize, recrop, etc.
This works for me. You can resize the entire grid using corner handles (you may need to Detach page background first) and individal cells using edge handles. To re-crop an image within a cell, double click first.
Here's a quick recording (view it on a desktop/laptop device):
Hope this helps,
How Bazaar, I downloaded LR for the sole purpose to make great collage displays for news groups, and after poking around forever, now discover this simple process doesn't even exist.
And system won't even recognize I'm the only entity of my user name from twenty five years ago, as Philscbx, then responds with already taken,. well yes, by me..
Looks like the only option left now is delete any trace of LR from this phone.
Why remove this feature? It was the only reason I paid for Adobe Express. As much as it makes me cringe, Canva continues to improve and I am just going to stick with them. I am really disappointed in Adobe, I have used Adobe products for almost 20 years and they continue to create problems for users vs solutions.
I am going to jump in on the outrage for this going away. It was something I use in just about all my creations. Software wise, it can't be that difficult to implement. Not understanding Adobe's decision process here.
What a major mess up this is. This was a go-to option.
It is still there but not as handy as before.
Go to the + icon and then choose a format that you want, then a empty page will load and on your left is a tab called "grid" under elements.
From there you can create a collage again.
I wish they will bring the old version back were I could just upload a few photos and that it will create it for me.
We understand the frustration and difficulties you faced with the new Adobe Express. We've been working on improving the app experience and have come up with updates that might help you with some issues.
I'd suggest you go through the post for creating grids/collage:https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-express-discussions/updates-for-the-new-adobe-express-as-of-sep...
We are still working on getting the experience smooth and will be rolling out updates.
