With a free trial, you get unlimited access to over 60 million creative assets – from motion graphics and royalty-free music, to add-ons and templates – free for 7 days. If you’re new to Elements, a free trial offers you the chance to give it a spin and learn how it can help to power your creative projects.

With a 7-day free trial you’ll have a whole week to explore all the benefits of an Envato Elements subscription – including unlimited downloads of graphics, video, music, photos and more all covered by our lifetime commercial license – with no strings attached. If you don’t think Elements is right for you, simply cancel any time before your trial ends. 

What are the Benefits of an Envato Elements Free Trial?

So, how do you get the most out of your Envato Elements free trial, and what are the benefits for free trial users? There are plenty of ways to use your free trial to explore Elements – from developing a thorough understanding of the product and its features or making a list of pros and cons, to creating a plan of attack for tackling a project and trying out the user experience. Let’s get started!

1. Explore our Huge Library of Creative Assets

Free Files on Elements: Fonts, Videos, Photos and More

One of the biggest benefits of Envato Elements is that it gives you access to over 60+ million items, including photos, graphics, videos, templates, fonts, add-ons, sound effects, and more. No matter what kind of project you’re looking to create, you’re guaranteed to find everything you need in one, easy-to-access place. 

Make the most of your free trial by exploring the extensive Envato Elements library as thoroughly as you can. You have 7 whole days to get a feel for the site, explore the categories of items, and get a feel for which might be right for you and your projects.

2. Discover the Value of Unlimited Downloads

While some creative stock websites limit the number of items you can use, Envato Elements offers users unlimited downloads! You access all assets from the Elements library whenever and wherever you want – as many times as you want. This allows you to work on multiple projects at once, or even to download and try out multiple assets for your project until you get it right. For any project you’re working on during your free trial, you can get a flavor of what it’s like not to be restricted by limits and volumes.

With your free trial, you also have access to Envato Elements’ simple lifetime license, which gives you the right to use any item in a broad variety of projects, including those of a commercial nature. Our customers tell us that this provides them with peace of mind and helps them to do the right thing.

3. Complete a Creative Project

Envato Elements is the ultimate toolkit for completing any kind of creative project – from making a video or piece of digital art to creating branding, social media posts, and business presentations. It gives you access to the templates, add-ons, graphics, and stock assets to get the job done. 

Before starting your Elements free trial, devise a plan for how you want to use it. Perhaps you want to create a poster for an upcoming event, a social media kit for your brand, or edit some video content for your freelance business. No matter what you’re creating, put your Elements free trial to use on a real-life project to see how it can work for you. 

If you’re working on multiple projects at once, Envato Elements Collections are the perfect tool for curating assets. They allow you to save all of your favorite items and projects to come back to when you need them. You can use Collections to keep your work organized, for your own personal inspiration, to create mood boards, or even to share and collaborate with colleagues and clients.

4. Get Inspired by the Envato Community

Envato Elements is powered by a creative community of authors, who sell their incredible work through the platform. Through Envato Elements, you’re able to access high-quality items while also supporting other designers and creators around the world. 

Plenty of Envato customers like to share how they use Elements items to create their amazing work – from digital artists and YouTubers to branding agencies and freelance designers. To get the most out of your free trial, why not get involved in our creative community, be inspired by other creators, and learn a ton of tips and tricks along the way?

We also love showcasing the work of our incredible creative community through our social media platforms, YouTube channel, and blog, so if you need some inspiration – you’ve found it!
