Adobe Spark: Edit & Post on Social Media
Back in December of 2015 Adobe launched a new feature for its burgeoning user base. They intuitively named it Adobe Spark Post (initially it was named Adobe Post).
Adobe Post is a graphic design tool that is geared towards the ever-expanding social media platforms that have now become a part and parcel of our life.
This app has made it possible to create beautiful custom-made graphics that we can use for all conceivable events and share them with our friends and families.
Design and post your images on the go
- How often have you wished you could create a custom-made graphic for your significant other on her/his birthday?
- How often you wanted to have a custom graphic designed for your small business, but shuddered at the thought of professional designing costs?
- How often you wished you could create great graphics for your Facebook marketing efforts, but hated the idea of having to learn to work with professional designing tools?
Adobe has answered all of your prayers.
What it is for?
If you are…
- Looking for a custom-made graphic to spread the holiday cheer?
- Want to spread the word about a new recipe you have just created?
- Want to let your contacts on social media know that you have finally turned a pro photographer?
Don’t worry, you don’t need advanced graphic designing knowledge or knowledge of the tools that go with it. All you need is an iPhone and you are good to go.

Who is it for?
Small business owners, people who are often in charge of 1-man business units will find it easy to use and extremely time-saving and cost-saving. Professionals such as social media managers, will find this app to be of immense help as well. But then there is a huge non-commercial potential target base for this app as well.
Who is it meant for?
Adobe Post is a downloadable app on the iTunes platform (sorry Android folks).
Adobe has been launching a flurry of new applications recently. But unlike most of them Adobe Post is geared not only for the more experienced users, but also users with basic graphic skills. As a matter of fact you don’t need any graphic skills at all to use Adobe Post.
How it works?
Adobe Post is a shareable graphic content creator. You can either use a photo you have taken or downloaded on your phone (that you own) to start as the basis of the graphic content.
You can pick from any of the one and a million stock photos that are already on the Adobe stock platform and available via the app.
Next step is to choose a design for your graphic, choose a font for the custom texts, play around with the plethora of design filters and you’re done! That’s how simple it is. Adobe Post has a unique filtering concept that actually transform your images with a single tap.

It is a pre-curated combination of fonts, shapes and layouts as well as picture-matching color combination that draws from the background colors of your image. All you need to do is tap to see your image transformed at the blink of an eye.
You can download the Adobe Post App for your iPhone here.
Additional fonts are available for download. You will however need to tweet with a link to Adobe Post to access those additional freebees. One thing though. All graphics created will have an Adobe Post watermark by default. It can, however, be removed. Just tap on it.
Sharing is even easier. Just hit the share button and you will have your favorite hangouts listed. Choose the platform you wish to share your graphic and submit.
