Tumblr is highly regarded as the best platform for creators to publish their original content, but not everyone has the knack for design – to bridge this issue, Adobe now provides everyone a helpful medium with the release of Adobe Spark.
With more than 20 million month page views, it’s easy to see that Tumblr has become one of the top ten social media platforms in the world. With remarkable sense of community, Tumblr does not only provide a great space for creators to publish their original artworks to the world, but also supportive community which always curate and share said original contents to all corners of the world – gaining the artists the recognition they deserve. However, as much as this community love to curate and share, they would also love to create despite their zero know-how when it comes to design and inability to transform ideas into a tangible content. Adobe Spark believes that everyone is able to create when they are given the right tool for it, and it is exactly what the website-based designing tool aims for. It does not matter whether you only wish to create a new header or transform your meme ideas into a shareable content online, the Spark has what it takes to help you make it happen. It’s incredibly powerful, easy to use, and best of all? Free.
This new addition to a long line of Adobe’s inventions, at a glance, seems familiar. The similarity is due to the fact that Adobe Spark is a combination of Adobe Voice, Adobe Post, as well as Adobe Slate – Adobe has purposely merged the three individual applications into an all-inclusive website-based tool in order to provide assistance to those who wish to produce high quality and visually impressive content for their social media sharing needs. Yes, even those who have zero graphic design prowess – this fact is what makes the Spark ahead of its successors, the software is specifically built to help nonprofessionals with no web/design/video development and experience to create any kind of visual stories on any device. This is not only a great news for bloggers, but also small business owners who use the blogging platform to reach its target audience.
