Transcripts

1. Adobe Spark Post: Intro: Hi, I'm Priscilla Cadwell and welcome to my skill share class on the Adobe Spark Post app. As an illustrator and surface pattern designer, I constantly use the Adobe Spark app to create engaging social media posts for my business card well and IQ. In this class, I'll be teaching you how to use this tool to take your marketing and your content creation to the next level and how to do it in minutes. Adobe Spark allows you to create content quickly from anywhere as photos, videos, or animations for your social media and websites. I'll be showing you how to navigate the user interface of pre-made templates, color palettes, fonts, and icons to coordinate and improve your overall branding for your business. And you can do it all from your smart phone or your tablet. This class is great for beginners and creatives of any level, wanting to easily incorporate more graphic design skills into your content for a more professional presentation. Your class project is to create one social media post for your business. And all you will need to take this class are three to four photos along the same theme. The Adobe Spark Post app on a phone or iPad or tablet. So enough talking. Let's get started. 2. Adobe Spark Post: Overview of the App: Okay, so I'm going to start by giving you an overview of the Adobe Spark Post out. Now if you take a look at my screen, apps should highlight Adobe Spark Post is free software that can be downloaded from the app store on an iPad or an iPhone or a tablet. There is a web version that this class will mainly deal with the iPad and mobile interface. So first of all, you need to download the app from the app still, the icon looks like this. They have recently changed the icon from a yellow icon to a red symbol in 2020. So if you have used the app before, just be aware that it is slightly different. When you open up the app, the homepage shows a range of pre-made templates. Some are premium with a yellow tag that requires a subscription, but the ones without the LI tag are free. Now, I do want to preface this by saying for this class we are only going to be using the three functions of the app. So you don't need to have an Adobe subscription. And I believe it is free to sign up to create an account so that you can access the features and stole any of your posts on your phone or iPad. Okay, so at the bottom of the page, you will see three things. The first is a templates icon. Then we have a plus icon with a green secular background. And then on the right-hand side at the bottom, you have the my posts. So I'm going to take you through this initial interface starting with the my posts. Every time you create a post, I'll just click. It does get stored in the app so that you can always go back and review or edit your price. Clicking on the My post tab shows your library of safe posts and you can scroll through them. And at any point in time, you could also modify and edit them. This is great. If you have a template you have made in a particular layout that you want to reuse without having to reinvent the wheel. You just can swap in and out different images. This can help you have a more cohesive feel to your social media posts and your website parts. It also means that you can keep the same color palette throughout. As a creative, I generally have content in the form of images and videos. So I do find it great to look through the my template section as inspiration, which is where we will go next. So at the bottom left-hand side of the screen, when you click on my templates, this is generally the landing page for the Adobe Spark parsed app. It showcases our range of free and premade. And subscription templates. The templates with the other tab require a paid subscription. The ones without it are free, so we are limiting our use in this class to the free ones. I generally use this as a library for inspiration for different types of purse that I can create using my content or using the free photos that are embedded within the app. At the top of the landing page, you'll see a range of different categories like featured premium animation, collaged, seasonal, Lifestyle, Business School, travel, et cetera. There are a whole range that you can scroll through. So for example, with the animated templates, I do love the little fish. You can actually click on any of the posts and just have a look and see up close if that's something that you would like to use. Please note at the top left hand side there is also an x which will take you back to the original homepage that you were on to begin with. Also on the top right-hand side, you will notice a little search file. So you can also type in. And I think I've already put textile in. So you can type in search for a particular term that fits in with a theme that you are working on. Say for example, this is the textile one, being a textile designer, okay, that's always an interest factor. For me. You can scroll through. And it can just be great to get some ideas for things that you may want to showcase you'll work with. So I'm taking a look and I really do love the look of this template in terms of the color scheme and the rest of it. I'm so looking at it, any template that is a pre-made free template, you can still modify. So there's a little tab at the bottom that said re-mix the template, which means that you want to adjust the template and make it your Arne and K. So when you click on it, this is what you get. You get the post, you get a new contextual menus specific to that post at the bottom. And anything in this post can be altered. So you can click on the photo and then swap in or replace. You'll notice another contextual menu shows up at the bottom and replace it with one of the photos from your own photo library or from your own files. You can also adjust the text made kay, so there'll be a range of color palettes that are embedded in the app that will come up that you can then use to adjust the text to whatever you would like it to be. And I will go into a bit more detail in later. Now, when you open the app, you can log in with your Adobe account or create a free account. And one benefit of logging in with a subscription is that you can remove this watermark at the bottom right-hand side of any of the Adobe Spark Paice. So if I click on it because I do have a subscription, I can immediately remove the watermark on this project. And then none of the parse will have that watermark When I save the image or when I save my animated post. So it's not very obtrusive, so it's not a problem if you have it on your post. But if you have a subscription to the Creative Suite, you can login with your subscription and have that removed. Okay, so I'm going to show you how to get images, use and manipulate images to make your own social media posts. In the next class. See you there. 3. Adobe Spark Post: Choosing Your Images: Okay, so we are going to move along to choosing our images for our social media post. Now as it creative, I generally will have my own content created. But I do know that there are a lot of people who are small business owners who are not necessarily artistic, but just want photos along a particular theme. So at the bottom I'm going to click on the plus icon because Adobe Spark Post has a solution for this as well. So you're taken to a whole range of options that you can incorporate. You can go to your photo library and pick any images that you have created yourself. But if you don't have content readily available, there is the option here for searching free photos. So if I tap on search free photos, you'll see a whole range of photos come up. Now these photos are sourced from an splash and Pixabay, which are sites that have royalty-free photos for people to use. So whether you are using that for your website or whether you are using that for your social media posts. They are royalty free. So it's really awesome to see an app incorporate these photos sources or the stock photos into their app for their users to have access to. So if you wanted to create a mood board, for example, I think we've gotten into sort of a Hayes is the term that they've used here. A whole bunch of different fighters come up, but just the same way as you can search the templates. There is a search bar at the top where you can search for images that you want to use for your posts. So I'm just going to bring my keyboard and I'm going to type in bohemian because I'm going to walk you through creating a post that has sort of a neutral, natural vive. And I think that's a great sort of ten. So you can pick any sort of search term to help you streamline or narrow your choices. So when you click an image and already I can see images that I want to use. So we'll go with a bit of a leafy one for this. I love that. So just select the photos that seemed to resonate with your theme. And once you have selected your images, you do have to go to the top right hand side and click to add those images to your post. And there you have it. Now, straight away, the first thing that shows up, which I think is an awesome, awesome feature, is the size of your post. So you can have a post for Instagram, can have Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Snapchat. A whole range of different templates are available to you to be able to use. So it kinda takes the guesswork out of thinking, oh, well, you know, will I be able to use it for this? Will I be able to use it for that? And I'll just click on a few for you. So if it was a profile cover, it automatically will resize to that particular size for you. If you wanting it for print a five poster size, let us size Snapchat, Pinterest. So this is a really awesome feature that we can use in order to sort of streamline your posts. So you may be wanting to make a post for your Instagram, and then you want to convert it to a Pinterest post. Adobe Spark Post will automatically do that for you so you don't have to, again reinvent the wheel. So I'm going to go with Instagram because I want to square post. I'm going to click Done. And it will take us to a new contextual menu where we can start to modify. Now I do want to show you this great little feature. If you notice the text, the text really fits into the whole feel and the color palette, the photos that you've selected. So that's another great feature of Adobe Spark. It will actually automatically draw out any colors that are in your images and create a cohesive color palette for your fonts. Okay, so in the next video, I will show you how to play with these images to create a social media post. I will show you how to use the different fonts, how to use a different color palettes, how to use a different icons to then make the post your arm. See you in the next video. 4. Adobe Spark Post: Setting up your Post: So now we are going to continue customizing our post. You'll notice that I have the four images. And once again, at the bottom right-hand side, if you haven't subscription, you can tap on that pyramid, the Adobe Spark watermark. Now looking at my Post, It looks great. Instagram ready. However, I feel like I want to add another Frodo and use this to sort of show you people already peeked photos and you decide, well, I think I would like to add a few more into the mix, how you go about doing that. So in this case, the first thing I want to show you is that for any image that you have, you can click on the image and you can move it around. And K. So I think I'd like the cup at the bottom. I think I'm going to swap it over there so you can always Holden image down and swap it around into any of the other cells that you want to so they're not necessarily fixed in place. The next thing is if you want to add an additional photo, when you tap on the photo, you'll notice that at the bottom of the screen a new contextual menu comes up. So you can replace it or you can add a new photo. I'm going to go into AD. When say Add Image. I'm still going to go into the free photos and continue with my bohemian theme. And I'm just going to add one more image in that is along the same sort of color palate as the others. I'm just scrolling through until I see what I'm looking for. That looks pretty good. Okay, so you wanna kinda keep your images cohesive in a particular column palette or along a particular theme. As always, at the top right-hand side. He then type it in at one. Ok. So once you have pop that in, it will ask you, do you want to add it to the collage? Do you want to allow it to move freely? If you add it to the collaged, it will add a new cell into your post that will put the image in if you wanted to leave it freely, it'll sort of Floyd on top of everything else, like the image implies, I'm going to go. And to collage. Now the way that this image has gone in, I kind of would prefer to have three images at the bottom and two on the top. So in this case, what do you do? Alright, so I'm going to first tap Done, thank k, so the image is in, but I want to sort of re, arrange the layout a bit. So I don't want to resize it. Think, hey, I don't want to resize it to a different social media posts. I want to keep it in this social media post, but I just want to change the layout. So you'll notice at the bottom there is an option for layout. I'm just gonna click on that. And you will see that it brings up all these different great options for you at the bottom. Now I can already see that reduction that I want. I would prefer to have three at the bottom end to launch images of the talk. So I'm gonna click on that one. See how my image has been, swapped it around. And then I'm going to click Done at the bottom right-hand side to keep those changes. Alright, I think I am pretty happy with that. So now that we have our images, you can also rearrange your images. So I would like this leaf at the top left hand side. So I'm going to click on it and I'm actually just going to swap it through and see how it feels. Yep, I'm happy with that. I think I want this all the way in the corner. Or like my tea cup in the middle. There you have it. So I'm also going to move these around to sort of have the view that I want to. Thank. Pretty happy with that. I think this image can go a bit smaller. And maybe one belief, hope it launches. So I might move that over to the side. So I feel like I'm pretty happy with that layout. Now you'll notice that the text can be moved as well. So anything in this can be moved so as not to up-skill the picture is beneath them. I'm just going to resize this image again. Swell, sort of centered a bit more. You can see more of the bull. Fairly happy with that. Alright. So that was the layout. The layout is probably the first thing that you want to play with. You'll notice when I did click the layout and it gave me the grid. You can also adjust the borders. So you'll see as I move the borders, it moves the cells as well. You notice there's a little luck there. If you undo the log, you can adjust the board at independent to the cell. So you might want to celebrate small, but you might want the border a bit larger around it. Okay, so that's another thing that you can adjust fairly easily. I'm going to lock the two together. Alright, color as well is there, so you may see the color palette and go, I love the wide. Maybe I would like to try. And sandy colour or a teal. The thing I love about Adobe Spark as well is that you'll color palettes are drawn from the images. So it creates a suggested palette for you using images from, using, sorry, colors from the images that you've already thrown in. And you can pick and choose, or you can choose any of the colors that are available to you. If you have a specific color palette in mind as well, you can actually click a color and you'll notice the little lines that show up on it. You can choose a custom color that you want it to be. For example, a brown. Or you can actually use the eyedropper tool and select a color from your image that you may want to use as a border. So that's another really great feature. So you may want to save those changes. You click done. If you are not happy with those changes, you click cancel and it will take you back. Now, I really do like the wide, so I'm going to click cancel again and it should take me back to the original piece. So we're still in the layout. The last thing in the Layout menu is the design. So there are a whole host of premade template designs that are embedded in Adobe Spark, which I love. So as I click through, you'll see what it does to my post. It adjusts it to that particular layout. So it still maintains your images, but it allows you to look at different layouts that you may prefer to have it in. And then you can save those changes for your layout and continue to customize it from there. So this is another wonderful and quick feature. So as I'm going through, I'm thinking, Yes, I do want to choose one of their designs. So I'm gonna pick this one because I sort of want to make it into a mood board. And I want to use the whitespace at the bottom in order to add a few icons to show you how to use icons in your parse INK. So that's done. It means my text is not obscuring any of my images. People can appreciate the images without the text over them. And I'm going to click done. All right, so in the next video, I will show you how to instead icons and adjust your text to enhance your parsed. See you in the next one. 5. Adobe Spark Post: Customizing Your Text: Okay, so the next thing that we are going to be looking at is the text. So there is text at the bottom in this post that is customizable. As soon as I click once on the text, the first thing you will notice is that at another color palette comes up and another contextual menu comes up at the bottom. So with this, you can adjust your text color. Once again, you have this suggested menu on your left-hand side, which is drawn up from the image. Or you can select any of the images that are available to you at the bottom of the screen. I'm gonna keep it in black for now. So you can edit the color for the text. You can either double-tap to edit the text or on the left-hand side of the contextual menu. It does have an edit button. So if editing text, I'm just going to rot. Neutral palette. Or neutral mood or maybe okay, done. And it adjusts your texts that way. You can increase the size of your text. You'll notice as well as I move the text around the post that you have, your guides show up, which allows you to center your text in the middle of the post or sent to your text to the images above. That's another wonderful feature with your text. So you can delete your text if you want. In the editing capabilities, you can duplicate your text if you want. So you notice when I click duplicate, it brought that up again. I'm going to cancel and I'm going to undo because I don't want to have those. Unfortunately, it has taken off my text, so I'll just do that one more time. Neutral chord. Okay, so the next thing is the font. Alright, so Adobe Spark has a whole range of fonts available to you to use. I'm using the local brew. However, once again, there are suggested ones that kind of fit the vibe of your posts that is predetermined by the up. Or you can pick any of the other fonts that are available to you which are extensive. Say feel free to have a play with that. I'm going to keep it on the local brew. The color. We have looked at, the shape. Now this is a fun one. So at the moment, it's basically it has no shape around it. But you can actually have a shape which you can adjust as well in terms of the color. Et cetera. As you move forward a battle, you can have it be a cutout. You'd have a whole host of background shapes that you can apply. And once again, you have a very extensive menu to choose from in terms of the shapes behind your text. I'm going to close that and move to the effect. Okay, once again, text effects. You can have a shadow and outline, a cutout, shadow and outline cut out an outline cutout in shadow. You can adjust so you can nudge your text up and down and sideways and all the rest of it. You can rotate your text so you can move it to the left or to the right. And I loved that it gives you the degrees, the exact degrees that your text is aligned with. So that's another great feature. And you can scale your tech, say you may just want to, you know, instead of just using the corners to put two different sizes, you may want to scale it to a hundred, two hundred, etc, percentage points. Okay, so I'm gonna leave that there. Alright, size. So once again, that's another way of adjusting the size of the text alignment options. So you can align your text to the left, you can align it to the center. You can align it to the right. You can imagine a line. And these two new features, you can curve it. So I'm just going to make this a bit larger so that you can see what that looks like. So that's sort of like a little stamp around a circular point which is very, very cool. Or you can grit it, which is another great feature of the text that is a new addition to Adobe Spark. And so loving those two new editions. Next you have ongoing to spacing, then K. So you may want to adjust your letter spacing so space it right out, or you may want to separate the lines. So I'm just going to go from 50 minus the lines kind of separate out a bit more. The next thing is your capacity. I'm just going to realign this in the center. Your capacity to allow you to see what that does is I'm going to turn it all the way down. You can adjust that as you go all the way up to full capacities and think I was about 16. And lastly, the style. So just like you have the designs in Adobe Spark, you also have a style. So you may not necessarily have graphic design skills, but you want a few ideas as to how you can arrange the text. If you click on style on the end, you'll notice this great little circular feature. And I'm just going to move this around and you'll see what it does to the text and k. So it gives you a whole range of different options. And as you move it around, if you see something that you like, you might go. I think I like that. Let's go with that. And once again, it's still is drawing from your images to give you an idea of the different options that you have. Once again, if you click Done, it will implement those changes. If you click Cancel, it will go back to your original text. Alright? So that is the text menu. I'm going to double tap and put back my neutral mood board. And I will see you in the next video. 6. Adobe Spark Post: Icons and Branding: In this section, we will be using icons to create a mood board from our existing images. So mood boards are great for logos and branding, or as color palette inspiration for design and illustration work. To find icons, you move to the plus button at the bottom left and you click Add icon. Again, a range of icons in the library will come up for you to choose from. But I am going to keep it fairly simple and choose a square icon. Again in the search bar. I'm just going to type in square. And I am looking for a simple block shape with sharp edges to match my images. This one seems to suit. As always, you can select more than one, but I will just add one here. At the top right-hand side, you can click Add one. And it will insert an icon, interior images. As you can see, this is a really large icon, and I would like it to be a little bit smaller so that it suits the area of the whitespace that I have at the bottom. In order to do this, I'm going to go to adjust and I'm going to select scale. Now the reason why I'm using scale is because I want to adjust it specifically so that it doesn't distort into a rectangle. So if I were to pick it up with the science, it could distort it into a rectangular shape and I want to keep their proportions. So I'm just going to use the adjust as is. I've used the guides as well to keep it in line with the left-hand side of my images. Thank came. So looking at the square, Adobe Spark has intuitively made the square green due to the color it might images, but I want to be able to select specific colors from my images to use. So with the shape highlighted, I tap on the color tab at the bottom. And then I tap on the icon settings. This opens up the color tab where I can use an hydropower to select the exact color for my image that I want. So I'm gonna go up into the green and select sort of bluey green shade. Their perfect. Okay. Once I've done that, I can click done. And it takes me back to the original color tab. Now I would like to create four squares of different colors for my mood board. So I'm just going to move this down a bit to center it. And instead of having to go through that whole process of inserting a new icon and changing the color. In this case, I'm simply going to click, edit and duplicate. And a new color is made a new color block. So I'm gonna move that across and then just go through the process of adjusting its color. In this case, I would like a brown. So I'm going to select a brown perhaps from the stool. Not quite happy with that. Yes, I think that would be a better color. Okay. And I'm just going to go through click done, and carry out that same process for the next two blocks. Sorry, duplicate that one. Send it across just the color, and I will go that kind of teal. And then one more time, duplicate across. Now you'll see what has happened here is that the block is too large, okay? Now, the issue with this is that I should have made my blocks slightly smaller, but I wanted to leave them large so I could show you another feature in Adobe Spark that is really fantastic. Okay, so I've got four blocks there, but I really wanna see my text on the right-hand side. So I'm going to highlight one of the blocks. I'm going to go to edit. And then we're going to use this feature called select multiple. I'm going to add another one and another one. Add another one, and click Next. Then I'm going to go to my adjustment and I'm going to scale the boxes so that they are all still sized accurately. But then adjusting the scale, clicking done. And then I can continue to move that whole block to the left-hand side. Click done. And there you have your mood board. So the last thing in this section, in terms of inserting icons, you may want to insert your brand, which I do often into your post. And for this, I'm going to move this little neutral mood board text up and I want to insert my brand at the bottom space there. Now I did speak to you about Adobe Spark having a branding feature, which is a paid feature, but there's a great little work around for that. If you have your own logo and you have it in a PNG format. For that, I'm just going to click off the text. And I'm going to click done. I'm gonna go to Add and go add image. In this case. Now, if you already have a logo and you go to my photo library, go to Adobe Spark Post. And I'm going to find my logo, which is saved in a PNG format. Now P&G means that it has a transparent background. So the logo is set against the background and so it can be used as an overlay for pretty much anything. If you do not know how to get a transparent background, but you have an image of your logo with a white background. If you take a look at my skill share class on liner motifs for surface pattern design. I grow through how to use a little app, a free app called magic eraser, to then take an image with a white background and remove it so that you end up with a PNG with a transparent background. So I'm just going to align this with the text. And we are done. And there is your mood board with your color palette and you'll logo inserted. See you in the next video and we'll talk through how to insert a video into a post that you have created. 7. Adobe Spark Post: Photo and Video Animations: Okay, so animations and videos are a great way to add a bit of visual interest to your social media posts. Statistics show that animated and video posts rate higher and engagement on social media platforms. So in this section, I will show you how to easily incorporate animation and video into your posts to make them more eye-catching and engaging. In the menu mark menu bar. On the homepage of Adobe Spark. There is an icon for animations. This can be used to animate your text or the images in your posts. I have touched on animating text already. So I just want to show you, if you scroll to the right hand side, there are a range of video animations that you can apply to your photos. So you can zoom in. You can pan, you can grayscale into color. You can blur. You can fade to a color that has been pulled out of your palette. Or you can fade. Once you have chosen the one that you want. You can go back to the beginning and click done if you want to keep that animation or cancel if you want to go back to your playing post. The next thing is you have an option now to insert a video into one of the cells of your parse. This has become available as of 2020, and it allows you to insert a 15 second clip into your post. I will often place progress shots of my patent design using this feature. But you can insert any photo from your camera roll or a time-lapse video that many apps now have. The possibilities are endless. The first thing I'm going to do is swap the leaves in this peak with the bowl underneath. So I might go the reverse of the pole leaves because I would like to replace this ball with a video. For this option. I'm going to click done. I'm going to click the cell first, edit and replace. Now I am going to replace that cell with a video or videos and select the video that I would like. This will then insert a little videos strip into your cell. I'm going to click Play. And you'll see that video begin to animate itself. If you had a video that was larger than the 15 seconds, it would give you an option to edit the video down to the size that you would like. So adjusting that length. Another great feature is you can adjust the scale, which I really do love to you. So you might think, for example, your video is a bit small if it's a patent, or you may want to center your image a bit more if it's a time-lapse. So you can increase the scale here. You can play to preview. And as you can see, the patent is now a little bit clearer. To see. I might even increase that scale one more time. Test again. And I'm really happy with how that looks. So I will click Done, and it will save the video into that parse. Now, there are other features you can rotate. You can flip horizontally, you can flip vertically. You can not do video to the left or to the right. So let's have great functionalities in. They said Jeremy spot price, I'm gonna click done. And then to export, whether a post or video, click the Share icon at the top right hand side. In this case, it is creating a video. And as it creates the video, it will then give you options to explore it. So you can potentially exploited to Instagram, you can send it as a message. You can email it to a friend. You can store it in your camera roll, which is the option that I'm going to be using in this case. So you have a lot of versatility with what you wanna do with that video once you are finished weather. So those are your options. I'm going to say video. And then the last thing that I will show you before your class project is this little back arrow at the top left. Now this is different to the Undo arrow. So you can undo or redo as you go through this whole process from beginning to end. But the back button then allows you to store your Adobe post. Now if you have a subscription, especially to the Creative Cloud, it will sink to all your devices that have Adobe Spark in them. So that is a really wonderful feature. It also means that if you would like to use that same template to then create a new color palette down the track. You can always go back to your Library. Click on it and you'll notice it has the delete, edit or duplicate or more. So you can then duplicate that design and then change out all the columns without having to start from scratch again. And you have a template for a mood board or a template for an Instagram post that can then be cohesive with your images changed or with your colleagues change, but that can be recycled. Okay, so next year class project. 8. Adobe Spark Post: Class Project: Thanks so much for taking this class.
