Happy New Year! For my first post, I wanted to share with you my favorite software from 2016. I think you might find it useful for creating stories, short introductions to a program, an invitation to save the date or a quick fact you want to share on social media or in a class. The program is Adobe Spark. Spark is free software that you can use on your laptop, desktop, iPad or smart phone. It is easy to use and comes with templates, graphics, background music and icons. Don’t like the graphics provided? Upload your own. Adding voice over is easy and quick. Here’s what you get with Spark:
Spark Post: With Spark Post, you can create social graphics for getting information out to your audience that looks professional and interesting.
Spark Page: Creates web pages that look like a booklet. Great for sharing photos.
Spark Video: Create a quick video with music and audio easily and with a look that feels like it took a lot longer to create than a few minutes. You can download the video and post wherever you want or post online and share the link. Even better, your projects are synced on all your devices so you can work on a project whenever the mood strikes without worrying about the version.
There are lots of other software programs that I love and will be sharing with you. I chose Spark because it is easy, free and creates a story that looks great, which is a great way to grab someones attention. Want some inspiration? Check out the Spark Inspiration Gallery. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
