As a blogger, I’m always on the lookout for things that can make making posts both fun and easy for me. I’m also almost always on the go, so being able to create image content for my posts while traveling is important. A little while ago I discovered the Adobe Spark Post App. Not only is it free, but it makes creating blog images sooooo easy to do.
I don’t use this as an image editing application, as it’s not what it was designed for. Spark Post is meant to transform basic images into content photos that you can use on your blog, then easily reformat to fit instagram, pinterest, facebook and more.
Spark Post provides you with multiple pre-made themes to choose from, all of which you can tweak as you need, be it the color scheme, font, or text layout. Just pick one and you’re on your way to making a great header image.
The app also makes playing with typography super easy for those of us who are less than awesome at it. Just drag the corners of the text boxes around and the text will move and fit to make anything look amazing. You can choose from a variety of border shapes to go with the text, adjust the text alignment, pick from a multitude of fonts to go with your theme, play with the opacity levels and even the spacing!
And on top of all of those neat features to play with on your images – Spark Post provides you with tons of pre-made designs to choose from to play with or give you inspiration. Need a basic background image? They’ve also provided you with a large library of free-to-use images. I’ve taken advantage of this feature multiple times to create images for my QOTW, like this Peter Pan inspired post
And you can decide to just use a plain color background for more simplicity, like I used here –
You can even use Spark Post to make your designs move in a video-like post, which is one feature I’ve yet to experiment with.
This app is wonderful and amazing and the fact that it’s free to use is incredible. It’s made it so much easier to bring you guys fresh takes on quotes for my QOTW posts, and I can’t wait to start using it in more situations.
My overall rating?
5 Stars for sure! The uses for Adobe Spark Post are endless, and so far it’s inspired me to create some pretty nice pieces.
