Adobe Spark: Getting Started

Adobe Express (Formerly Adobe Spark) is an online (currently free) tool similar to Canva that allows you to easily create graphics, printable media, web pages, and short videos using supplied templates. The user controls their creation, including changing layout, colors, fonts, size, and images. The system is straightforward to use, providing beginners and more experienced designers with a quick and easy method to create a wide variety of media. Files can be downloaded and printed or shared through social media.

The system requires you to enter your Rowan credentials. To start exploring and creating with Adobe Express, please the following tutorial.
