Read on to discover the capabilities of Adobe Spark, so you can empower yourself with creativity.
Add animation and animated stickers to your design.
Turn your photos into videos with animation effects. Adobe Spark Post features both text and image animations such as scrolling, fading, and panning, to name a few. Or add stickers for a splash of animation on any design. We’ve teamed up with GIPHY to offer you an ever-evolving library of animated stickers. Download your design as a video to share via text, email, or any social platform.
Remove the background to save as a transparent PNG.
There are different ways to save your design with a transparent background. If you’re building a project with graphics, stick to a solid color background and choose “transparent background” when publishing your final design. If you’re editing a photo, use the beta “remove background” feature to achieve a cutout effect, and then save with a transparent background.
Enhance photos and images.
Adobe Spark isn’t just a powerful design app, its built-in photo editing functions make it the perfect app for perfecting pictures. Upload your photos and images to your Adobe Spark workspace to enhance them with an array of adjustments. Add contrast, sharpen, adjust the brightness, or even add filters to achieve a transformational aesthetic. Make your adjustments as subtle or dramatic as you need with a sliding scale option, and you can always revert to the original settings if you need to backtrack your edits.
Adjust the size, orientation, and cropping.
Once you’re pleased with your image’s appearance, make any necessary adjustments to achieve the perfect composition. Rotate, flip, scale, and crop your photo to perfectly fill your canvas. Adobe Spark Post features a nudge option so you can edit with precision, even while editing on your mobile device.
Add text overlay, captions, and typography designs.
Adobe Spark Post is a fully functional design app that encompasses much more than photo editing. Add text to your images in a multitude of ways. Add simple text captions with custom font choices provided to you in the app, or download your favorite typefaces from Adobe Fonts to your workspace. Choose from various text shapes and styles to add excitement to your typography, from background shapes to playful borders. Adjust the color, spacing, and paragraph structure with ease. You can even match text sizes to others on your design to achieve consistency. Communicate your message clearly and creatively with an array of text customization options.
Create custom color swatches and color palettes.
Use the “Colors” option in your Adobe Spark workspace to explore the possibilities with colors. Adobe Spark features premade color palettes, along with generated suggested palettes based on your design. Customize your palettes to perfection with the sliding color picker. You can even add hex values for your specific color needs. The color eyedropper tool allows you to select colors from your design and turn them into swatches. Have fun experimenting with all the color options at your fingertips, and don’t be afraid to be bold with your palette choices.
Design collages combining text and images.
Adobe Spark offers templates for you to build custom layouts and collages. Explore the gallery of professionally designed templates for various collage designs, or choose the “Layout” option right in your workspace to experiment with your design’s structure. Incorporate a mixture of photos, images, text, and icons to your layout for a dynamic collage.
