About Adobe Spark

Adobe Spark is a cloud-based design platform which allows users to create custom graphics, web pages, and videos on their computer or mobile device. Spark Page and Spark Video offer iPhone and iPad apps, while Spark Post has native apps for both Android and iOS. Automatic sync of projects across the web and mobile apps allows users to work from anywhere, at any time.

With Spark Post, users can create custom content from a range of templates or from scratch, with the ability to customize logos, colors, fonts, and images to reflect their cause, business, or personal brand. Designs are automatically resized for different channels, allowing users to create blog banners, Instagram posts or stories, YouTube thumbnails, Facebook Ads, and more, without needing to manually resize images.

Spark Page provides users with a range of different website layouts to customize with their own content. Thousands of free stock photos can be utilized, in addition to users’ own photos uploaded from their device or imported from cloud storage accounts. Users can also create web stories using Spark Page’s magazine-style themes, which automatically adapt to display on different devices.

Spark Video allows users to create custom videos by combining icons, photos, and video clips, with the ability to add text overlays to their creations. Various visual themes are included with different transitions and motion designed to enhance the story, mood, and message of the video. Soundtracks can also be added, either from a variety of free soundtracks or uploaded audio files, with the ability to adjust audio volume as necessary.

    Makes Branding a Breeze!

    Reviewed on 6/10/2020

    I love how Spark makes creating lots of quality content more manageable.

    I love how Spark makes creating lots of quality content more manageable.

    Pros

    Excellent Template selection. I love the branding feature that makes customizing content a breeze!
    Within the iOS app, there are lots of options to allow you to shuffle through various formats till you find the right "feel" (in the app, select the text, go to "style" and play with the style wheel).
    The integration with Creative Cloud is also so helpful for achieving brand consistency.

    Cons

    I wish that you could make multiple posts within one file (similar to Artboards in Illustrator) rather than having to duplicate the file and edit it accordingly. It would be much more convenient for multiple image insta-posts, OR when you are making the same type of post across multiple platforms. Sometimes I won't realize I want to change a style until I am on the second format of that graphic (for example I make an insta post and duplicate it to make a FB version and then while on the FB version I realize a particular design looks better). So it's annoying to have to go back to the first file to do that. I'd love to be able to do that on just one screen. Also, the align feature is currently only accessible if you select more than one object and only works to align relative to each other. It would be great to be able to align relative to art board and access this feature with just one object.

    Great tool for small businesses and for education. Very simple to use and there are tons of templates and tutorials, plus a huge image collection. In education, my students created several marketing materials and created a portfolio of their work, and for small business it will be great for social media, websites and blogs.

    Pros

    Adobe Spark has a range of functionality for design. From infographics to web pages, digital portfolios, slideshow videos and social media posts. All of these elements are fantastic for building assets for education and for student demonstration of knowledge.

    Cons

    When adding assets to a Spark webpage that are designed in Spark, you must first download the item as an image (infographics, social media posts, menus, posters, etc) before adding them to the Adobe Spark webpage. If it had a drag and drop function it would be very convenient.

    Another Beautiful, Well-Functioning Adobe Product for Social Media and Website Graphic Design

    Overall, I am so thankful for Adobe Spark because its design elements and tools are just superior and exceptional, wide-ranged, and varied enough to suit any design need or aesthetic.

    Pros

    Adobe Spark has been instrumental lately in the graphic design I've needed for my newer website. I've been designing a 90's style theme for an education business and have needed social media updates and designs as well as graphic elements to add to my website and advertising for my website. Adobe as always hits the mark with beautiful designs and templates, stock photos, and ideas that can be edited nicely as well.

    Cons

    The only con is that also like other Adobe products, there is a learning curve, although much less of one with this particular product than with what I've seen in Illustrator, for example.

    I started using Adobe Spark as an alternative to Canva. But I found the whole experience not as user friendly as what I can create with Canva. My team ended up going back to using Canva for simple graphics.

    Pros

    As a Social Media Director I often need to create quick graphics myself rather than bog down a graphic designer with a simple task. I found Adobe Spark, and it's great for just that, simple graphics. You can choose from a large assortment of stock images because they are attached to Adobe Stock, as well as other free stock images on the web.

    Cons

    I felt it was too hard to make the graphic the exact way I wanted it too. You could change the font only by using a sliding scale, in order to make changes to the text you had to click on the word box and it opens in a new screen. Additionally, the variety and of "shapes" they offer is not as vast as Canva's selection.

    Spark is a software that helps me create activities, presentations and projects that not only meet a professional level in my social networks, but also serves to create projects for educational and training centers. It is an incredible platform for those who have small businesses and grow as a business.

    Pros

    You do not need to spend hours and hours trying to start a project completely from scratch, since Adobe Spark has a large and large number of templates to start your work, in addition to being an Adobe product, it is compatible with all other products of this brand And you can add different things to your presentations.

    Cons

    Lack of optimization and ease in whether the format, that is, there is still a lack of certain arrangements and things to add, for example. Change the type of letter, the size of the letter, the color, the form of this, always take because it is a process, nothing easy to do, are small things that make the final result slow.
