Adobe Spark: Too simple for its own good

Pros: The Adobe webpage builder is fast, and fun to use, and simple enough that no instructions are really needed. The Spark suite is available on mobile as well as desktop, and video creation on the fly on mobile is simple, but once again, at the expense of customization. If you put a text graphic over video, you'd better be comfy with the graphic being on screen as long as THEY want it. You can't specify text durations over video.

Cons: Canva is the main competition, and their free tier does not place a watermark on finished designs. Adobe does, and this one thing makes for a deal breaker. The Adobe webpage builder is fast, and fun to use, but doesn't allow embedding html elements, severely restricting what the page can become. Pretty, but all pages will begin to look identical. The graphics creation tool is clunky, and unresponsive compared to Canva.

Overall: It is the rare occasion that an Adobe Spark user would need any instructions on how to use their product, which begs the question: Is it powerful and useful enough? My opinion? Almost. I can build single web pages in a flash, that look beautiful, as long as I like the way THEY lay it out. I have zero customization choices on Spark PAGES. Spark Graphics suffer from the OPPOSITE: they have a resizer function for free (which Canva.com forces an upgrade for.) but the resulting resized images are usually distorted. I don't enjoy their graphics builder GUI at all. Their webpage builder GUI rocks.

Pros: I love Adobe Spark! Period. I know there's a graphics features, but I primarily use and love the video builder. It's a great video making tool for teachers, students, or even personal use. It's simple to use, all you have to do is drop in images and pictures, set a few features, and voila! You have an impressive video to document student projects, research topics, or even personal life events. I love that it's free, first off. I also enjoy that they have a good variety of customization and features - they have songs to use, format/transitions, and templates, and good background music to make it complete. You can also add voice over which is neat for students as they create products. I also like that it can be easily shared to Google Drive or downloaded. Awesome tool for the classroom and personal use!

Cons: I honestly do not have any complaints. Adobe Spark exceeds my expectations!

Overall: I really enjoy using Adobe Spark! I use this to allow students to build simple videos that documents their work (i.e., a lab report with procedures) and create simple informational videos (i.e., biographies, research topics, etc.). Adobe Spark is also great to use for personal use (i.e., family videos of the weekend, photos from the past year, etc.). Love it!

Pros: I like how quickly you can create good looking, branded graphics for various platforms. There are a lot of templates which can be implemented easily. I appreciate all of the different platform options offered including videos, websites and actual graphics.

Cons: The build a brand feature still needs some work by Adobe. It's clunky. When I built our brand in it, the logo options did not implement as easily as I had hoped. The ability to change the branding easily was not there. We brand differently depending on platform and this lends itself to more of a uniform branding across the board. The video templates need to be expanded upon. It is very difficult for me to find something that may work without a lot of modification.

Overall: When I use Spark it is to create graphics for social media easily. I am working on building our brand through more video and I believe Spark will make an easier platform to do that with. I am planning on teaching our full time social media person how to use Spark so she can create things more easily. Overall I am happy but I am hoping that Adobe expands the templates and the branding capabilities.

Pros: You simply input your 'brand' criteria, and go to town. Graphics, web pages, videos, literally anything you can think of to make your brand look amazing - wherever you need to use it. And it's web-based, so whatever you create in one place (phone, tablet, laptop, desktop) will be there whenever you need it again!

Cons: More templates, but even that isn't really a 'con'. More of a wish-list!

Overall: I found out about Spark from my Creative Cloud subscription, and just going through all that was included. Once I found it, man I haven't stopped using it. I tell everyone I can that they need to use it. It will make their brand look better, and it's so easy to use.

Pros: - The tool which makes you creative, even when you are not that creative but still wants to design like a pro, this is a tool for you.

- Gives better freedom and creativity to your designs without any professional tools , you can use spark on any device available to you.

- Make website designs and graphics with Ease.

- You can save your favourite fonts and make use of them in future designs.Even you can save your color pallete which you like the most and make use of it frequently and easily.

Cons: You cant save the same template or design you used earlier. You cannot arrange brands in an organised folder or your designs in an organized folder which is very crucial. There's very little space for customisation on layering of designs which need to be improved.

Overall: Adobe spark helps me alot when i am away from my usual setup and want to explore my creativity.

Pros: I do a lot of online multimedia and social media projects, and I can say that without a doubt, Adobe Spark is the way to go.

With it I have been able to make graphics, webpages, blog posts, posters, cards, covers, videos, and the list goes on and on.

The UI is buttery smooth, and the whole thing is super user friendly.

Working with Spark has allowed me to do anything. And has made it super easy to share with my customers and work with them and anyone on a project seamlessly.

I wish that I had found it years ago. It has definitely improved my workflow and my time.

Cons: I cannot say one bad thing about Spark. It's simply amazing. Adobe hit another homerun with this one. I highly recommend Spark to everyone.

Overall: Fantastic. I love every moment I get to use Spark. It has made my life and work so incredibly easier. It's a fantastic product.

Pros: I like that you put templates that are modern, and that are striking, I love that you have the option to place animations or short videos in your posts, I find it super nice and attractive when presenting it. You do not have to be an expert to use it, if you are a small company, you can create the post or design that you like the most from your phone. They are always updating the templates, according to dates or holidays of the month. It's great that you can remove the publicity of them are having to pay, and also that it lets you place the color code RBG.

Cons: They do not have much variety in typography, I would like them to have a bank of images to be able to use.

Overall: Modern varieties for the image of your company, from your cell phone is fast, and you can also create it from your laptop. You do not have to be an expert to be the designer of your company.

Pros: It gives you a wide range of products to create. You can do a graphics, videos and web pages. Creating videos is really simple with easy to create and add to voice overs. There is an excellent library of photos and is easy to add your own and edit. Gives you excellent sizing for any type of graphic requirement. Provides common size examples along with ability to custom size.

Cons: Use the image and video component. Have not really found a use for the web page module.

Overall: It enables us to quickly find a photo, resize it and add special effects as needed and use immediately. Making videos is great for quick support related use as well as content production.

Pros: The UI is intuitive and the template library is very useful when creating graphics. It's hard to create something that doesn't look nice aesthetically when using Spark. A new update has allowed users to import their own fonts.

Cons: Rarely, I've noticed a bug when saving images. The resulting file is all black and unusable. This only seems to happen when working with large dimensions (over 4000px on either side). It usually can be fixed by saving, exiting, and attempting to download the graphic once more.

Overall: I use spark daily when creating social posts for my company. I also utilize the tool for other design projects occasionally.

Pros: It is so convenient and makes great social media content. This is easy for the user to make professional content that is consistent throughout all forms of social media. I like that this app keeps up with trends and makes the user look more technologically savvy than they may or may not be. I used to have to use Photoshop for everything and then send it to my phone but this is a MILLION times better.

Cons: It takes up a lot of battery power when you use it. Very easy fix though, just make sure you have a charger.

Overall: Absolutely love it! This helped me further the social media accounts I was assigned to run.

Pros: Spark is incredibly easy to use that anyone can create professional designs and publications without having to pay a graphic design company to do it for you. Adobe always impresses with their software and this one is no exception. I have created logos, flyers, cards, and posters so far. Depending on the complexity of what I am trying to accomplish, I have been able to crank out some of my designs in under 5 minutes. All of the templates that are provided allow for customization so do not be afraid to test them out even if you don't think it will work (I have taken templates that I didn't like and with a few changes to colors, layouts, etc. I have created some impressive stuff.) Adobe also provides a trial period so there really is nothing to lose.

Cons: The only thing I would say that is needed to improve Spark is for Adobe to provide a little more help for the first time user. That being said, I should fully disclose that I am the type of person to completely skip over software assistance and jump right in so I can say I may have missed that. Other than that, I really do not have much I do not like about Spark.

Overall: Being able to work up a quick flyer, brochure, etc. for my business makes this worth every penny. Things I used to depend on printers or office supply stores for are made much simpler, at a much better cost, and without little effort. Plus, the product I received from most of my printers and vendors was not the quality I expected when I finally received it.

Pros: As a marketing content creator, good design is incredibly important to me. But I don't always have time to create custom artwork for everything we use. Enter Adobe Spark. I can trust that the visuals that are created by others that I delegate to are going to at least look good. Even if they're not designers. It's an impressively powerful image and video creation tool that's easy to use.

Cons: I've never really found a use for the webpage designing feature. The only other complain I have is that it forces you into templates...but then again, that's wherein its strength lies.

Overall: I use Adobe Spark primarily to create social post artwork. I also equip people I delegate work to with it so that I don't have to worry about the quality of the visuals we're putting out. (mostly)

Pros: Adobe Spark had me 'animated' from the very beginning. The absolute best thing about Adobe Spark is the ability to animate my creations. Plus, a widely known name such as Adobe makes it even better as Adobe has always been known for creating excellent software packages. I've been an Adobe user for years and just recently started using Spark a few months ago and as a web developer, it's second to none in terms of its capabilities.

Cons: The only drawback I have with every Adobe product I use is the cost of the full-featured versions, which I gladly pay even though I view them as extreme in some circumstances. I kind of feel as though I am paying for the Adobe name instead of the actual product. Sometimes I wonder if Adobe could recoup its development costs and turn a profit while charging its customers a cheaper price for its software.

Overall: My experience with Adobe Spark has once again surpassed my expectations. With the Adobe name behind the software, I am going to continue being a user. Quality products are what I look for, and Adobe definitely brought quality to the table with Spark.

This app alone makes Adobe CC worth it! User friendly with amazing features, frequently updated!

Pros: EASE OF USE. Social Media post that needs to go up in 5 minutes? SPARK has got your back. This app is so easy to use and has exceptional features that can make a 5 minute post look like something that could have taken hours. Even amateur "designers" can make things look good using preset templates and quickly customize for your business from a screen as small as your phone - no need to sit in front of a computer. Frequently updated with new features and abilities to enhance posts.

Cons: Absolutely love this software and it just keeps getting better. I suppose the only "con" would be that some of the features are a little tricky to use on such a small screen, but that's more of a hardware issue.

Pros: I like the ease of use and fun design elements in conjunction with how many fun projects I can create with Adobe Spark. My favorite is the story telling ability through Spark Page.

Cons: I wish this integrated with other Adobe products better, but for now, I can create graphics and then save them in the format I want to place and where.

Overall: I have created a few social media posts and advertisements, but my favorite project was a blog I did for myself as I went through 30 days of radiation. I found something good about every day and through use of photos, the story telling features of Spark Page, and my dedication to add something each day using this software, I have a piece that not only made me feel better, but that i now share with others experiencing the same challenges. This software has been influential in how I approach some projetcs now too. I love this.

I use Spark for social media posts and all my clients love how great all the graphics turn out. From instagram posts to instagram stories to facebook cover photos, Spark is the way to go for custom graphics!

Cons: I wish Spark had a few more filters to use on pictures. I think the current filters are a bit too strong often. Also, sometimes I get frustrated choosing the text colors. I often find the preselected colors aren't exactly what I'm looking for.

Pros: Adobe has really been improving its Creative Cloud suite with all of these new apps that it has been introducing since Adobe MAX. Adobe Spark makes digital designs so easy with its ready made templates, simple 1-2-3 clicks and you can share it on Social media like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The possibilities for this app is ENDLESS.

Cons: Maybe the least liked about the software is that there are limited effects you can place and the time limit for each post / template.

Overall: Spark is very intuitive and very easy to learn. I look forward to its development.

Pros: There is an inspiration/browsing component to this software (especially on the mobile Spark Post app) that is wonderful for first time branders/users. You see something you like, you click on it, you adjust any/all of the components of the image to fit your brand, then you save or share.

Cons: I find most of the Adobe products to not be very intuitive to PC users. Luckily, they have made tutorials very easy to access from within the software, and the tutorials provide great step-by-step instructions.

Overall: You have the option of creating posts (i.e. social media graphics), videos, or pages - all of which provide very helpful suggestions for where to place your logos or how to use color and font to create eye-catching designs. As someone who is not particularly gifted in the area of design but occasionally needs to create a simple graphic, the suggestions and tutorials provided by the software usually get me to an end product that looks much better than I had originally envisioned.

Pros: Adobe knows how to make great looking, easy to navigate software and Spark is no exception. I would say this is the most intentionally easy to navigate software Adobe has made yet. In template software like this you can often start to feel boxed in by what is or isn't provided and Spark manages to sidestep this problem by giving you the ability to upload your own fonts, providing templates, but variations on the template, and giving you tons of photo options from Unsplash and Pixabay including syncing with your Google Photos, Drive, or Dropbox in a click. I also really appreciate the approach to helping people understand what a brand is and how to build it using primary and secondary colors, as well as primary and secondary fonts.

Cons: As well designed as it is, it feels like they left out one simple feature when creating your image/document - that is a zoom in zoom out button.

Pros: -You can sign-in with your Adobe ID

-The "Variations" design option is a Godsend. I love the ability to see variations of a design which i can consider and modify

-Unlike Canva's free plan you can use Spark to create short videos

Cons: -Unless you upgrade every image you design will have the Adobe spark logo at the bottom of the image.

-While Spark lets you create videos, the image design aspect is not as flexible or have as much image design options (Templates would be a better description) as Canva

-In didn't like how when I selected a grid-like design from the "templates" available, the images that were shown in the design wasn't in my workspace, for a few seconds I forgot what I was supposed to be looking at since all I saw were a blank boxes and a colorful background, it wasn't until I hovered above the black boxes that it said replace image, which made me laugh because there wasn't any image in there in the first place.

Overall: Not bad. I still use Spark but not as often as I use Canva

Pros: It's Easy! Adobe Spark is made for creating eye-catching posts using a combination of stock images and text. Adobe makes it easy to find an image, type the message you want, and post to social media in a matter of minutes.

Cons: Spark contains a wide variety of effects that can be applied, but customization of these effects can be limited. Sometimes, the coloration of the effect doesn't quite match what is in mind, and there is no way to adjust it.

Overall: Adobe Spark is a mobile application made for creating picture-based posts to capture interest of viewers in the endless scroll of social media news feeds. We have used Adobe Spark on our church social media for promotion of upcoming church events, pushing important information with a stylish flair, or simply leaving scripture against an appropriate backdrop. Using Spark, we have noticed increased engagement on our posts (compared to plain text). Spark has made it simple, easy, and kind of fun to create new posts.

Spark is a perfect tool for non designers and designers alike to make content in minutes.

Pros: With all Adobe products the design interface is kept very simple and easy to understand. This helps anyone to jump in and start making great looking content. The program leans toward non designer/beginner level users, but that's not to say a seasoned designer can't appreciate all of the features and utilize it! The pre-made templates look great and are helpful if you don't have a creative starting point. The color palettes are well organized and amazing. They will make anyone look like an expert in color theory! Font selections are nicely varied and all look professional and high end. My favorite feature is the resize option which will allow you with one click to adjust your design to virtually any social size - from instagram story size to twitter headers, posters, slides and more. That feature alone is an amazing time saver and will speed up anyone's workflow that has to do multiple exports.

Cons: Spark isn't an application you download on your computer but rather a program that launches within your browser, connected to your creative cloud account. While this can be convenient, it poses a problem if you don't have internet access but need to design. Also, for someone who likes to save my source files on multiple drives for backup purposes you don't have access to a source file, and can only download your image. Lastly, if you're looking to do any major image editing this isn't the program for that - you're working within the bounds of stock images or importing your own images created in photoshop etc.

Pros: I'm a Graphic/Web Designer. I don't specialize in video. So, when I'm tasked with video editing, it could be daunting. Thankfully, Adobe Spark allows me to create quick, professional looking videos for various outputs with very little effort. However, the end-product looks very sleek, and well put together; never cheap. This software is great for pushing content onto Social Media quickly, or slapping together a presentation under a tight deadline. I would highly recommend this software to other designers and creatives.

Cons: I wish there was more functionality. One of the pros of this software is you can make things very quickly. But the downside is that most assets are very strongly "stuck" in the pre-made templates. Some customizations (screen size, text adjustments, layers) would be a huge improvement to make videos just a little more unique.

Overall: Fast, easy, quick video editing for non-designers. This is perfect for pushing Social Media content, or Marketers who may not know Graphic/Video design, and others who need to make quick visual content.

Pros: It's a breeze to create a template and resize it to any commonly used size for social media images and headers. The pro version offers a lot of extras like adding your own fonts logo's and also provides templates for flyers, posters, etc. Creating Instagram stories or video's for Facebook is quickly done with Spark Video. I haven't used Spark pages yet, but it looks like a great option to create quick landing pages. However, I must look into that.

Cons: Even though it offers many different templates, it would be awesome to be able to import templates created in Photoshop.

Overall: I created several templates in Photoshop for images for my Pinterest posts but always found it a hassle to make extra graphics. Now, with a mouse click, I resized images or changed the look while keeping on brand. It helped me to gain more traction to my blog thus growing my mailing list

Pros: Adobe Spark is my favorite designing app, for desktop and mobile. One of the best features of the app is the ability to rescale the image to different dimensions, whether it's for Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, and more. Great variety of professional templates, which are also able to be customized.

Cons: I feel it would be nice to have multiple brand options, instead of just one brand color scheme and fonts.

Overall: Adobe Spark has been well worth the investment and time. I have a Adobe Creative Cloud subscription just for Adobe Spark and Spark Video. I recommend the product to clients and colleagues. Also great features to test out for free, though I feel the subscription is well worth the price.

Pros: For small businesses there is always that person who wears lots of different hats. For our business that is me. I edit our blog and social media pages. Adobe Spark is a perfect tool that helps me create beautiful cover photos, ads, videos, and presentations. Awesome features for the free offerings. Would definitely recommend to anyone to use because it is so easy.

Cons: Logo update costs money. Wish that was part of the free version. However, beggers can't be choosers!

Pros: I love how easy it is to use, and the free photo stock library generally has a great selection

Cons: I do not like the auto-choices the software makes for content, it always selects the "shape" that has a background. I also think there should be a snap grid or the ability to lock the logo.

Pros: The program is extremely easy to use and begin creating. The resizing feature allows me to repurpose content across platforms. The featured templates allow me to expand my creativity.

Cons: The only issue I've had with this software is the difficulty of downloading my own fonts.

Overall: I create content for over 20 businesses. Adobe Spark has created a faster work flow and shortened the time I spend on creating content by several hours a week and increased the quality of the content.

Pros: I love how easy to use this software is. Under pressure, users can create quick, meaningful video content with Adobe Spark right from their smartphone!

Cons: The downside is also an upside for me, which is the limited nature of the themes the product comes with. There are only a few to choose from, but that keeps users from having to make too many decisions. The themes are all good, so most of them can be appropriately used without a lot of thought.

Overall: I teach a college writing class that has recently adopted an approach called multimodality, where students need to "create content" rather than simply "write." The ease of use in Adobe Spark allows students to shoot and edit video in a very quick way, making it possible for me to assign video creation assignments to students who have little to no video experience. This is incredibly valuable, and I don't think I could do this for my students without Adobe Spark.

Amazing, and easy to use.

Pros: I really like how easy Adobe Spark is to use. It is easy to learn and has valuable tools that I have found very helpful. When I was editing a thumbnail for one of my YouTube videos, I found it easy and very effective.

Cons: The things I like least about this software is the features available. After working a little bit with this program, I found that it was lacking features that would help me create an even better image and overall product.

Overall: Overall, I am really happy with this program it is very easy and is cost effective. If you are looking for a more advanced software, I would look elsewhere. But, in all, I would definitely recommend it.

Pros: Adobe has a gorgeous layout and presents information in clear, organized, aesthetically pleasing way. It makes it easier for people who are not web designers to plug in information and pictures in a beautiful layout.

- User friendly with demos, examples, and tutorials

- Great layouts to choose from

- A library of pictures that automatically get footnoted on the presentation

Cons: The font on Spark only has three sizes, limiting what can be done in terms of presenting the information. Spark does not allow for the type of font that would allow the page to be presented in a big room, it is designed to be viewed in personal computers.

There are some limitations to the kind of layouts a person can use, which is part of what makes it so user friendly.

Overall: I love Spark. It has allowed me to make professional-level presentations with little technical knowledge. It is user friendly and can be learned within the first use. It makes stock pictures and other media accessible, which is a big plus.

Excellent for beginners like me!

Pros: When I move photos to another spot, they switch, which is nice. The graphic word changes on the dial is super convenient.

Love the easy changes you can make on word layouts, fonts, color, format, etc. I like that there are several formatting options easily accessible.

Cons: When I move photos, the words and icons move but not where I want them to. Not sure why the words or icons get moved at all. It should be a separate function. Or, if it does move, move to a spot where it looks nice and organized.

When I change the format of the layout, my icons went missing and I could t find them sometimes. Why? This is inconvenient. The icons at least should stay where they are or be somewhere in sight. I found it difficult to change the format because I had a lot of icons but was afraid if I changed the format, they would disappear or go somewhere I didn't want them to be.

Overall: I really enjoy this and have started using it more often which means it's easy and nice enough for me to keep being a user. I might think about upgrading for more features if I could do a trial to see what's available!

Pros: Spark is a fast and convenient way to do quick graphic design on the go. Spark is incredibly simple to use and no design experience is required to use this tool. Using Spark is a great way to start using Adobe products before getting into something more complex like Photoshop or Illustrator.

Cons: It's lacking a lot of the features you'd normally see in paid Adobe software, but this it to be expected since it is a free tool. This product will certainly not replace other Adobe applications, but it serves as a useful tool at no cost.

Overall: Adobe Spark is fantastic for quick graphic design or photography edits, specifically for social media or online purposes.

Cons: One of the main drawbacks of the Adobe Spark application, which I would like to point out, is a small selection of fonts for creating text banners. The second minus is that there is no possibility of resizing the image.

Pros: Spark is an interesting concept - basically implement some branding assets, fonts, colors, logos etc. and then watch Spark create a multitude of layouts that are branded for social media and website usage. For smaller companies that don't have a full time designer or an agency, this can be a huge asset. Since it is included in your Creative Cloud subscription (for those that use it) you can't complain about it not being feature-rich enough - especially since it is new.

I experimented with it for a gym client I do work for - and it does provide interesting stuff. Perhaps most of it is sort of generic looking, but then again I am a designer and most people who see this won't know.

Cons: Feels really feature - thin still. I know it is a new product, but I feel like I hit my cap with possibilities already. I'm use to most Adobe products having a huge depth of tools to utilize.

Overall: content creation, design, layout generation, idea creation

Pros: The greatest thing about Spark is the ability to create images for everything in the social media universe. If you need a template for a Facebook header, it's there. How about the perfect Instagram square? It's there. It makes creating a consistent look for your business throughout all social media outlets very easy. The time of manually creating branded content that doesn't match is over.

Cons: Spark needs to team up with someone like Unsplash to make finding compelling images easier. Once the image is in-hand, Spark makes enhancing that image for branding or messaging very easy. But finding the image to start with is often a bit more difficult because the internet is so big. Spark should help reel that in more effectively.

Overall: Overall, Adobe Spark is a great product and I would highly recommend it for any business that is looking to promote itself via social media.

Adobe Spark is a quick and useful design tool that's perfect for novice users and graphic artists.

Pros: Spark is really cool. The software lets you make videos, webpages, and other animated graphics in an easy to use app or online client. It's great for people that want to make some dynamic-looking stuff without having to put hours into fiddling around with photoshop and the like.

Cons: Spark is made for people that want easy-to-use templates with drag and drop style customization. Basically that means some of the graphics are a bit straightforward, with not much room for granular control over elements. Also, watermarks on the free version :/

Pros: We use Spark for many of our social media posts. By applying our images and adding custom text we are able to insure our brand remains consistent on the go all from our phone.

Cons: This app took us a while to fully understand everything it was capable of doing, and the user experience could always be improved but overall it's a great app.

Pros: I use it to design web banners for promoting our business projects to media partners. We do not have an in-house designer, so Adobe Spark helped me make graphics that look professional enough to be sent to national media. I was able to choose among variety of layouts to make collages or fading images designs by using my desktop galleries. It took me only few minutes to make a basic design. I used the Colors Palette to have the right balance of colors for the projects. I also find the Text Style Suggestion very useful to make banners that are readable on web. It combines different font styles, text colors and text backgrounds that visualize instantly for choosing best results. The Resize function is also very practical to set up the right size of banners for the web pages. As a non-professional I often duplicated my recent project to experiment with functionalities while having my favorite works backed up at the same time.

Cons: You can add your own corporate logo, only if you get the upgraded version. I wish I could also blend images by Adobe Spark. This functionality might be out there but I could not find it at first glance.

Pros: The mobile app for Adobe Spark is a great tool to have in your bag when you need to create quick and easy social media ads. It can also help jog some inspiration if you create a decent amount of ads and posts and feel some creative fatigue.

Cons: I get that it has a direct purpose, and therefore is defined and slimmed down in its abilities - but if you're use to constantly creating images on something like Adobe Photoshop than Spark can feel a bit limiting.

Pros: This software is great for people who don't have much experience in graphic design to create awesome graphics quickly. They take all the text, photos, colors, etc. that you may want in a graphic and can create endless options for you which is great.

Cons: As someone who has a little more experience in graphic design, I find the software a bit limiting. I'll only use it for very simple things like social media headers.

Overall: Easy quick graphics for beginners

Pros: What I liked most about this software is that you can make videos easily and they look really professional. The options that Adobe has with this program takes your social video making skills to the next level if you don't have a ton of time.

Cons: What I like least about this software is that it is cost prohibitive if you're not already paying for the cloud. I also don't like that there is a bit of a learning curve. It is NOT as easy as the demos make it seem.

Overall: Adobe Spark gives you the ability to create quick socially shareable videos on the fly. If you're not learned in Adobe Illustrator or other programs that take a little while to learn, this should solve your problem.

Pros: Now that Microsoft no longer supports or allows downloads of Windows Live Movie Maker, Adobe Spark has become my go-to software for generating video clips to promote my music studio and music classes. It is super easy to edit video clips and I love how professional my videos look. So far I've only used the free version, but I plan to upgrade because of ease of use.

Cons: I don't really have anything negative to say. I am very happy with what this software can do for free. I highly recommend it!

Overall: Adobe Spark is very easy to use. The videos I have created look amazing and I can't believe I can create so much with the free version.

Pros: What I like most about Adobe Spark is it free. It is a standard software to get your feet wet in design, understanding competition and playing for standard font concepts. In addition it provides templates to utilzine for those who are completely new to the adobe platform. Plus they provide deminsions for all social media platforms to create your custom post.

Cons: It's rare to find free Adobe products that provide quality functions, however it lacks tools vs. the canvas out there.

Overall: I enjoy the app because with quick projects come with quick solutions and Spark is a perfect example of producing quick, quality work with simple clicks!

Pros: The video features by far are what sets this apart from any similar product - the ability to upload, edit, and composite high-quality videos and export to use for social media is incredibly exciting.

Cons: The level of text-editing features is slightly lacking for anyone who is used to software such as Photoshop or InDesign. It can definitely still get the job done if you are looking for something efficient but still clean, however, the font choices are at a minimum and it can be frustrating to try and align multiple elements.

Overall: Overall Spark is great for anyone who doesn't have the means for a more heavy duty program, or simply doesn't feel like messing with them. It's simple, quick, very customizable (but also has some great templates) and it's pretty hard to make something that doesn't look professional.
