    Graphic designs cost at an average of $150 and depending on what you need it could go even higher. When you’re just starting a business, this could be an added expense. With Adobe Spark, you can create your own marketing materials even if you’re just a beginner.

    Edit*** Updates have been making it less of an issue so happy about that. Frustrating. I've used this app for a long time and it's always been incredibly reliable but for the last month or so it's been sketchy. It freezes, takes forever to load or just stops. When adding text it freezes or won't switch fonts as necessary. I've emailed them and nothing. I'll be happy to update this review once it's back up to it's normal performance.

    Loving the app so far having experience with many design projects. Really creates a peace of mind when needing to run through multiple iterations of a design because you know what you want once you see it, and not having to stop the creative flow to draft new thumbnail mock-ups, grab more paper, or even shuffle through needed layers. Literally the only problem I’ve ran across multiple times is when saving the file size even at the recommended dimensions for any content I decide to post on social media it results in a pixelated image on the desktop version while appearing clear and crisp on the mobile versions. I’ve tried uploading the image that gets saved directly to camera phone and then viewing it on the desktop version and it still comes out pixelated and not as crisp. And just for comparison I also tried saving the finished project directly to google drive and then downloading the image on a desktop and then uploading the image from the social site on the desktop and yet the Image still resulted in the same quality. At the moment it has been only good to design for smaller screen content. As it seems the resizing feature doesn’t seem to actually effect the resolution even though the info on the desktop changes, when you need to scale a design up for desktop view. Still giving a 4 though.

    Okay. I am overwhelmed at how great this app is now. It is so intuitive and geared towards creating exactly what you're aiming for that any bugs I either cannot see or doesnt exist at all. I absolutely LOVE the entire adobe creative suite package also using this. Wish I could give 10 stars. I feel bad for ever doubting you.

    Posted my first attempt with Spark to Facebook, tried an animation with a fairly subtle zoom-out effect that looked very nice, but on Facebook the video kept looping repeatedly—it was about 3 seconds long. I found that there were limited options with text, with font point size missing altogether. (Most would agree that’s a pretty basic function, one would think.) You could change the relative size of text by enlarging or reducing the size of a text box or adjusting line spacing, but these were pretty awkward and unpredictable ways of doing so.) I wanted to italicize the title of the book from which I was quoting, but couldn’t find a simple way of doing that either—even though the font I used had a designed italic, I found I could not mix the two in the same sentence, after repeated tries of selecting and trying to format individual words. That said, the font selection was very good and quite tasteful, making any post created in Spark deliciously gorgeous and a cut above any typical meme-maker. As I mentioned in my post, I found the placement of the Adobe Spark logo at the bottom intrusive and lacking in subtlety or nuance. This needs to be addressed—I am not using the software primarily to create ads for Adobe. Still, because it can produce such beautiful results, I’m giving Spark four stars out of five.

    Typically I’m too proud to do anything the easy way. I sometimes feel that if I didn’t build something completely from scratch, I didn’t build anything at all. But Spark Post helps me to work smarter, not harder—to feel that using intelligent design tools doesn’t make me less creative, but instead helps me to clarify and realize my vision faster. It helps me to focus my energy on making better content instead of on unnecessarily fussing over the presentation of a simple social media post that will disappear in 24 hours and that is meant to communicate a message rather than be my magnum opus. The only thing about Spark Post that disappoints me is that, in its attempt to make things easy and auto-intelligent, there are certain key features missing for those of us who like more control. For example, paragraph styles and spacing don’t exist—you need to create a new text box. Resizing text boxes forces the text, the shape, and the border to resize together rather than allowing you to alter each style independently. This makes matching text boxes difficult. To make more precise edits, I could take my graphic into Illustrator—but the point of Spark Post is one-stop editing for quick and easy social media posts. It would be nice to be able to get under the hood of your design with more advanced options.

    I'm very happy with this App. Only thing I change for now is the capability to add effect of shadows when you upload and image to a post, i.e. you take a mockup and add a photo just like a picture in a wall, you have ro add the shadow effect to that photo, so it will looks like a real frame hanging in the mockup.
  • Great App Jul 7, 2020

    Spark Post is a great content creation tool. The learning curve isn’t daunting which is greatly appreciated. However, there are plenty of advanced tools like: animations, alternate font styles, etc. This application should accommodate most use cases, and the software has most if not all of the typical integrations you would expect which allows for easy content sharing on different platforms. I personally love the resizing presets for different social media sites. Most importantly this part of Adobe’s family of applications which ensures great user experience/interface, constant updates, and the introduction of new features over time. If you are a user who needs to brand your content there is an in app purchase that will allow you to do that as well. Can’t say enough good things about the app. Keep up the great work Spark Post team, I always look forward to the new features you introduce!

    Can you guys pleeeease take some notes from Canva?!? You guys both offer great apps with a good number of features but Spark misses the mark on SOOO many key features! And I can easily name several. It’s like, do you guys not use the app to design things too?? Because it could be so much better. The only two features that Spark has that really sets it apart from Canva include the shuffle feature (which is great, but could offer more of a variety of styles) and the ability to resize the canvas for free. Thanks for that. Now I’m very pleased that the app is free and the vast majority of options on it are free as well that is fantastic!! But in terms of improvement and the pace of it, it seems like Adobe hardly cares about actually making Spark a top tier option in the design space. And while Spark is pretty much the 2nd best free design tool that I’ve come across, that has a lot to do with the fact that the “competition” is very weak rather than Spark being very competitive. Nevertheless Thanks for the free design tool that helps millions create cool things!

  • It’s fixed? I’ve fallen back in love 😍 Sep 17, 2018

    By thebestnicknameEVR
    I’d started having trouble with the app after a few weeks of using it without issue, I felt blown off when I contacted help, I continued trying to use the app but complained about the issue here. A few days later seen I was asked to contact support again but I figure letting them know about the issue is enough - so I wait it out. It’s now been over a week and I haven’t had anymore issues. I’m back to loving this app but worried it’ll change after I update my review. Not necessarily based on a lack of trust in Adobe but businesses in general. I’ve always been a fan of Adobe and been a creative cloud subscriber for years and happy about it for 99.9% of the time. Which is why I was so flustered by the issue with this app but it seems to be fixed now so- yay! 👍🏼👍🏼

    WHY AM I PAYING FOR THIS? this app hasn't worked in months. The templates don't open, the fonts don't load and if by magic I can download some they all completely disappear in the same project. Everything takes forever to load and it crashes constantly. What the hell is the deal with this app??? I'm so upset this used to be my go to.

    I decided I would try the app for a flyer which I now do at least twice or more out of the week for my business and church. I have tried several times to either download or share my project it does nothing. I even turned my off for at least 15 minutes still nothing downloads or shares. VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE APP!!

    Like others have recently commented, something has gone wrong with the app. It takes an extremely long time to open or generate a post rendering the app useless. The blue circle just spins or closes completely. I've used the app for 2 years and paid for the upgrade. Please fix whatever is wrong.
  • Love it but the bugs screw you over Feb 26, 2019

    By pinkschool
    I love this app. I love adobe. I think it’s amazing for creatives and I praise this app and its possibilities. HOWEVER, i’m tempted to stop using spark because of it’s major bug issues that have become detrimental to my business. I go one day from it working to another day telling my client that we’ll have to delay posting because the app keeps telling me to renew my subscription, yet when i try to renew it, the options come up blank. So I spend hours trying to fix the problem, resetting my phone, redownloading the app. Its EXHAUSTING. Especially because I probably do this once a month. And every few months it just decides to turn the images black, keeping only the texts when i try to download or post. And when i do the reset, redownload, it deletes all the work i’ve just put in. Spark has been a life saver. But it I catch it on a bad day, it can ruin everything, setting me back by at least a day. Please, please, PLEASE fix these issues. I don’t want to stop using this wonderful app but if this continues I might have to.

  • My Go To App On the Go Dec 24, 2019

    By Heleva
    I create a lot of visual content for many Non-Profits I volunteer for who have honest Grass roots budgets. Adobe Spark Post and Video have been the tools I use to capture and create In-the-Moment visual digital content of events and programs for these organizations. I have loaded brand colors and logos and have even managed to create quick concept art for further development in my other Creative Cloud tools at board meetings. The app has helped me keep my prolific productivity on schedule and on point. I have other products but they just do not fit into my creative workflow as seamlessly as Adobe Spark Post and my Creative Cloud suite. From print graphics like programs, books, flyers, and posters; camera ready art, to dynamic content for video and social media I am getting my money’s worth with Adobe Spark Post.
  • I love this app! I have a suggestion. Apr 3, 2020

    By Rattifer
    This is actually one of my favorite apps. I’d like to make my animations longer. I figured out I can cut out a few steps by using Adobe Rush instead of iMovie, which required me to rotate my animation and still, then create the video and save, then use another app to rotate the video back to vertical. Now at least I can save my animation and still, then import into Rush as is, make a video with them (extending the time the still portion with the text stays on the screen,) then export. Easier, but it would be even better if I could skip Rush altogether. I would like more animation options, particularly the ability to control the length so that after the text animation is done, the image will stay up a bit longer.
  • Some Five Star Apps aren’t perfect yet. But they will be. Feb 16, 2020

    By dj jon bates
    As a 30-year creative director, head of user & consumer experience (UX+CX), digital strategy executive and visual communicator, I learned three things early on: 1) Great art comes from great artists, not tools. 2) But if you’re a pro, you know and work with Adobe tools. 3) This isn’t artwork. It’s a professional’s work. Use Adobe. This mantra has loosened a bit over the years, and Adobe has disappointed us in some recent product decisions that left us with unstable, bloated, laggy and crash-prone versions of the tools our business runs on: Photoshop. Illustrator. Lightroom. Bridge. Acrobat Pro. All have added resource-hungry bloats (3D in PSD) that diminish the power of stalwarts like Photoshop by making them sluggish, unpredictable and burdened with new features that keep the software from providing the core value and stability we can’t operate without. **** With this is mind, I’ve used Adobe Spark’s apps since the early betas. The triumvirate of apps under Spark has finally settled after a bit of confusion over each app’s purpose and relation to the others, and the initial technical problems with app crashes seems to be resolved.

  • Suddenly not opening in iPhone X after latest update. Feb 15, 2018

    By spinmaster85
    Giving this one star since the app is no longer working on iPhone X after latest update 2 days ago. It’s working now. Not sure what was happening or why but it’s back to its awesome self again! Hence I have revised my rating. Thank you for responding to my concern. FYI - the issues specifically was that when I would attempt to open up the App it would start to and the screen was just black. It wasn’t the entire phone. Just the app itself. I tried it several time’s and it did the same thing, even after a reboot. Several hours later it started to work again without me taking any other type of action (i.e. reinstalling the app).

    Edit*** Updates have been making it less of an issue so happy about that. Frustrating. I've used this app for a long time and it's always been incredibly reliable but for the last month or so it's been sketchy. It freezes, takes forever to load or just stops. When adding text it freezes or won't switch fonts as necessary. I've emailed them and nothing. I'll be happy to update this review once it's back up to it's normal performance.
  • Loving it so far, but... Jun 7, 2018

    By terranceblakelyartist
    Loving the app so far having experience with many design projects. Really creates a peace of mind when needing to run through multiple iterations of a design because you know what you want once you see it, and not having to stop the creative flow to draft new thumbnail mock-ups, grab more paper, or even shuffle through needed layers. Literally the only problem I’ve ran across multiple times is when saving the file size even at the recommended dimensions for any content I decide to post on social media it results in a pixelated image on the desktop version while appearing clear and crisp on the mobile versions. I’ve tried uploading the image that gets saved directly to camera phone and then viewing it on the desktop version and it still comes out pixelated and not as crisp. And just for comparison I also tried saving the finished project directly to google drive and then downloading the image on a desktop and then uploading the image from the social site on the desktop and yet the Image still resulted in the same quality. At the moment it has been only good to design for smaller screen content. As it seems the resizing feature doesn’t seem to actually effect the resolution even though the info on the desktop changes, when you need to scale a design up for desktop view. Still giving a 4 though.
  • Beautiful typography; kludgy to use Dec 29, 2017

    By TCollinsG3
    Posted my first attempt with Spark to Facebook, tried an animation with a fairly subtle zoom-out effect that looked very nice, but on Facebook the video kept looping repeatedly—it was about 3 seconds long. I found that there were limited options with text, with font point size missing altogether. (Most would agree that’s a pretty basic function, one would think.) You could change the relative size of text by enlarging or reducing the size of a text box or adjusting line spacing, but these were pretty awkward and unpredictable ways of doing so.) I wanted to italicize the title of the book from which I was quoting, but couldn’t find a simple way of doing that either—even though the font I used had a designed italic, I found I could not mix the two in the same sentence, after repeated tries of selecting and trying to format individual words. That said, the font selection was very good and quite tasteful, making any post created in Spark deliciously gorgeous and a cut above any typical meme-maker. As I mentioned in my post, I found the placement of the Adobe Spark logo at the bottom intrusive and lacking in subtlety or nuance. This needs to be addressed—I am not using the software primarily to create ads for Adobe. Still, because it can produce such beautiful results, I’m giving Spark four stars out of five.

    I'm very happy with this App. Only thing I change for now is the capability to add effect of shadows when you upload and image to a post, i.e. you take a mockup and add a photo just like a picture in a wall, you have ro add the shadow effect to that photo, so it will looks like a real frame hanging in the mockup.
  • Almost perfect Sep 25, 2018

    Whether it’s a witty meme, an image to send to friends and family, laughter, or a tool that allows you to create professionally created images for your business, this app is almost perfect. I would even go as far as saying Adobe apps are a game changer. I can produce high quality images on my telephone. As an artist, I can create images for my business to promote my work online or small print. This app helps you create stunning, modern, and eye catching material. The downfall of this particular app is the logo imprinted on images, unless you pay $9.99 per month for a premium version. Granted, Adobe access to a tremendous amount of technology through their apps, free of charge. That’s what makes this particular fee seem like it’s trying to nickel and dime customers. You can make your image a little larger, and then crop their logo, or you can use another app to place your logo over the app logo in the final image. It’s an extra step, but easy enough to do, so I don’t see a reason to pay for a premium version. One of my favorite features is that the app allows you to size images for specific social media platforms. The exact image may vary from one platform to the next, but I maintain the same theme and branding. This is really a game changer. I remember starting as an artist, and technology was so different. Advertising seemed out of reach at times. Now, it’s like I’m my own advertising department.

    Easy to use and learn, I've been having fun using it today. Good for making nice looking text posts for the most part, if only the text itself let you do a fill color.

    I absolutely love this app! I use it constantly for my Etsy and Facebook pages and could use it even more if I had the time. Because it’s so easy, I change my pages and banners frequently - following seasons or announcing sales, or just so much fun, etc. I use the free templates as backgrounds and never fail to find something for the occasion. There are only two things that would make this app perfect for my needs: 1). The 5% opacity often leaves a text box shadow when using a font effect such as outlining or shadow - 0% would solve this problem. 2) Resizing using social media templates and background templates crops the image but will not reduce it to fit. I’ve even tried other apps to do this but it’s a nuisance. So much better if a image resizing capability could be included in Spark Post. With the addition of these two capabilities I would rate this app with 5 stars - and 10 if it were possible! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟x2
  • Love it, but needs minor improvements to be 5 stars Feb 26, 2019

    Overall, this app is great! I love how versatile it is. You can make just about anything for your graphic design needs. I find the pre-made color themes to be helpful, & it’s great that they can easily be tweaked to suit your needs. I also love that some of the font faces can be changed to bold, italic, thin, etc. And the availability of logos, stock photos, & patterns is quite vast, making it fairly simple to find what you need. Here’s what I think could be improved: - I am subscribed to the premium feature, which was working on here, but is now only working on the spark video & spark page apps. This doesn’t end up being a big deal, because I just remove the spark logo, but it would still be easier if I could have this issue fixed. - There are a good number of fonts to choose from, but I’d like to see a few more added, OR the ability to easily import new fonts. - I LOVE the inspiration pages & that they’re organized by category! However, if there was a search function, it would make things even easier to navigate & find what you’re looking for. For example: if I’m looking for inspiration on a flyer, it would be helpful if I could search the term “flyer” to find different flyer designs.
  • Much to improve on May 29, 2021

    Can you guys pleeeease take some notes from Canva?!? You guys both offer great apps with a good number of features but Spark misses the mark on SOOO many key features! And I can easily name several. It’s like, do you guys not use the app to design things too?? Because it could be so much better. The only two features that Spark has that really sets it apart from Canva include the shuffle feature (which is great, but could offer more of a variety of styles) and the ability to resize the canvas for free. Thanks for that. Now I’m very pleased that the app is free and the vast majority of options on it are free as well that is fantastic!! But in terms of improvement and the pace of it, it seems like Adobe hardly cares about actually making Spark a top tier option in the design space. And while Spark is pretty much the 2nd best free design tool that I’ve come across, that has a lot to do with the fact that the “competition” is very weak rather than Spark being very competitive. Nevertheless Thanks for the free design tool that helps millions create cool things!
  • Lack of features compared to similar apps Feb 1, 2020

    By charlieheartsmatt
    The thing I think I find most disappointing is that this app lacks some of my favorite features from the Over app. 1. There isn’t a way to add basic shapes and “add icon” is a mediocre substitute. In the Spark templates they often cheat to make shapes by typing letters and then making the font and font shape the same color. This is ridiculous. Just add some shapes. And snapping is usually not accurate for the icons so they look misaligned unless you nudge them around. 2. The size snapping is often more harmful than helpful. And there’s no way to type in the specific size you want so you end up endlessly bouncing from too big to to small. It’s infuriating. 3. There’s no masking feature. I miss this the most. It’s the thing that makes the most difference between “I did this on my phone” and “I’m a professional.” PLEASE ADD THIS 4. You can’t zoom in to see where things are actually lining up. 5. Nudge seems to move things based on a percentage of the size so getting equal spacing on different sized elements is pretty much impossible. 6. There are no gradients. Which could be a part of the shapes. You can do this, I believe in you. I really want to make this work because I already paid for it. I’m sure developers use other apps to see what’s going on elsewhere, but if they don’t, you really should.

  • Great — when it works. Apr 1, 2021

    By Proteus 846
    I use Adobe Spark Post to make Instagram story promos for my youth program’s events. It is very easy to make a great-looking promotion with this app, taking minimal time and effort, and it’s a lot of fun to use. But that’s when it works. Every once in awhile, the app seems to forget that my paid Photoshop plan includes the premium version of Spark. When this happens watermarks appear, my branding is inaccessible, and I can’t duplicate posts made using premium features. Signing out and back in doesn’t fix it — usually I just need to wait for it to fix itself with an update. I make a promo image WEEKLY using Spark. I need it to work, or I need to make something manually in Photoshop which takes more time and is less convenient [because I can’t do it from my phone wherever I am in five to ten minutes]. As of this writing, I can use premium features on the website but not in the app… so there’s a workaround, but this is an issue that needs to be fixed. I have access to Spark Premium, but it’s not reliable — and that’s a problem. If they were to fix this issue, I could definitely recommend Spark Post. As it stands, I can only tell you “it works great when it works, but sometimes it doesn’t for weeks.” That’s not exactly a sparkling recommendation.

    Worked great when I first got it!!! Now it is extremely slow and shuts down right in the middle of me making a post. I've tried to Uninstall and re-install and it still not working correctly.

    WHY AM I PAYING FOR THIS? this app hasn't worked in months. The templates don't open, the fonts don't load and if by magic I can download some they all completely disappear in the same project. Everything takes forever to load and it crashes constantly. What the hell is the deal with this app??? I'm so upset this used to be my go to.

    I decided I would try the app for a flyer which I now do at least twice or more out of the week for my business and church. I have tried several times to either download or share my project it does nothing. I even turned my off for at least 15 minutes still nothing downloads or shares. VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE APP!!

    Like others have recently commented, something has gone wrong with the app. It takes an extremely long time to open or generate a post rendering the app useless. The blue circle just spins or closes completely. I've used the app for 2 years and paid for the upgrade. Please fix whatever is wrong.
  • Love it but the bugs screw you over Feb 26, 2019

    By pinkschool
    I love this app. I love adobe. I think it’s amazing for creatives and I praise this app and its possibilities. HOWEVER, i’m tempted to stop using spark because of it’s major bug issues that have become detrimental to my business. I go one day from it working to another day telling my client that we’ll have to delay posting because the app keeps telling me to renew my subscription, yet when i try to renew it, the options come up blank. So I spend hours trying to fix the problem, resetting my phone, redownloading the app. Its EXHAUSTING. Especially because I probably do this once a month. And every few months it just decides to turn the images black, keeping only the texts when i try to download or post. And when i do the reset, redownload, it deletes all the work i’ve just put in. Spark has been a life saver. But it I catch it on a bad day, it can ruin everything, setting me back by at least a day. Please, please, PLEASE fix these issues. I don’t want to stop using this wonderful app but if this continues I might have to.

    Really great app for creating flyers. Until they updated it. Now it doesn't even load. I really loved this app. Now I have to find a new one unless this gets fixed .I'm using Samsung tablet.

    This used to be a great app. Every update makes it worse. I have a paid subscription and I can barely use it on a very new device so it's not me. It crashes and barely works. Don't spend your money.

    Crashes my Galaxy S9 every time I try to create a post with one of my own photos as the background. Unusable so far.
