What you can create

  • Posts: Single images can combine text and images. They're saved as picture files.
  • Pages: These are long, flowing, top-to-bottom pages that you scroll through. They can include images, videos and text.
  • Videos: These videos can be picture slide shows or a combination of images and videos. They can include voice narration and/or music.

About the three formats

 

Creating videos with Adobe Spark is simple. You are able to change the theme, add music, and create slides.

Posts: When you create a post, Spark asks you, “What do you want to say?” Type the main idea or quote and it’s added to your post. Spark offers several sizes for your post that are appropriate for each platform.

Sizes for various social media uses (posts, headers and thumbnails for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and more)

  • Presentation slides
  • Posters
  • Tall informational graphics

To find images for your posts, Spark connects you to a search of Creative Commons licensed images. It lets you customize your text with fonts, shapes, alignment and more. When you’re done, you can download your image or share it with a link.

Pages: Create a webpage with relevant content to help your Google ranking. Adobe Spark allows you to add lots of content including:

  • Photos
  • Text
  • Links
  • Videos
  • Photo grids
  • Glideshows (like slide shows that zoom in on the image while you scroll)

When you complete a graphic, you are able to share it directly from Adobe Spark.

 

Videos: Spark asks you what kind of video you would like to create and then helps guide you through creation. When you chose “lesson” from its video types, it created six slides for me with these suggestions:

  • Overview: What will you teach, and why is it interesting or relevant? How will people use what they learn?
  • Concept: Describe the concept you’re teaching.
  • Example: Give an example that your audience can relate to.
  • Explanation: Connect your example to the idea and explain how it applies.
  • You try it: Share a scenario or example problem to let your audience apply what they’ve learned.
  • Summary: Summarize the key takeaway for your audience to remember.
