#OneNewThing – Adobe Spark

This summer I attended a teaching symposium where the mantra was “One New Thing,” or the act of finding one thing that you think will meet a need and implementing it instead of feeling pressure to implement many things.  This new series will focus on helping you potentially find your #OneNewThing.

Adobe Spark is an online graphics and video application.  Use the Social Graphics app to create graphics with text to post to social media or to liven up blog posts or presentations.  Use Web Stories to create interactive pages for storytelling or newsletters.  Animated Videos allows the user to create animated slideshows and presentations with images, text, and recorded audio.

How It Works

Spark Post – create stunning graphics 

  • Get started quickly using a theme or start with a blank slate.
  • Add your own images or use the built in image library.
  • Search the text library to find just the right font and layout to meet your needs.
