Default Adobe Spark

I've been playing around with Adobe Spark It's an online tool that facilitates creation of graphic images, web pages, and movies.

I've only looked at the graphic image feature. It provides templates, photos, fonts and other tools to create graphic content. You can also use your own photos and fonts. I fumbled around the interface for a few days because I was too lazy to watch a tutorial. But not too lazy to spend a lot of time fumbling. I can see how this could be helpful.

FWIW, the reason I went a fumbling is creating text in Photoshop is a PITA. I assumed it would make this easier. It does.

Glad you found it useful. What sort of text were you looking to create?


This is not something I would use. I don't are for the SAAS approach and I care for it even less after reading about Adobe's blocking CC access to users from Venezuela and not returning their money...

I saw people posting graphic text on Facebook and I wanted to see what I could come up with. Just dumb stuff. Here's my first test image. I added the vertical line between the photo and the text area in Photoshop. There might be a way to do it in Spark but I got tired of looking.

Regarding Venezuela, this is why is sucks that Adobe customers can't possess their software. Adobe can turn off access. They might even be able to shut down stuff that's not rented, and needs to be activated.

That's a pretty fun image...'-}}


It can indeed be a bit more fiddly than one wants to do stuff like that in Photoshop if you don't work with Photoshop that much. I don't do nearly as much as I used to in Photoshop but enough to keep my hand in. If Spark helps you do stuff, go for it...




>> Adobe can turn off access

Perzackly!!!! and...not only Adobe but any of the SAAS crap providers. UGH!!!
