Gift #1 – Magic Design

Magic Design lets you upload an image that can then be automatically embellished according to your curated selection of personalized and fully customizable templates depending on the style you select.

Gift #2 – Draw

Draw is a new way to draw across any type of design which also recognizes what you’re creating and helps smooth out the shapes. Soon you will also be able to use Draw to match your sketch to options in the element library.

Gift #3 – Translate

The new Translate feature helps you share your designs with the world. You just add text to your design, pick the language from over 100 options, and instantly convert the text.

Gift #4 – Magic Eraser and Magic Edit

Magic Eraser lets you quickly remove unwanted distractions such as cluttered props on a table in a photo you’re editing. You can also use Magic Edit to swap out or add new elements, such as a teapot for a bunch of flowers in a campaign image.

Gift #5 – Beat Sync

Create a dynamic social-media-ready video in seconds with Beat Sync. Just upload  the music track or select one from the library and one click of Beat Sync will perfectly align your footage to the beat of the chosen soundtrack.
