Video continues to dominate the media landscape. Social media posts with video have 48% more views than plain text or images (HubSpot) and social video generates 1200% more shares than text and image content combined (G2 Crowd). But you don’t need a study to tell you that videos are just plain eye-catching and fun too!
And now they’re easier than ever to create with Adobe Spark’s mobile apps! We’ve added fresh animations, video background support, and new moving design ingredients to Spark Post so making a bang on social and beyond is just a few taps away.
Here’s the skinny on Spark Post’s new features and how it can power your expression explosion:
Add Video Backgrounds to Your Designs – Now on iOS
Now you can add video clips to any Spark Post design for dynamic social video in seconds. Simply add a video from your camera roll, trim to the moment you want, then design on top of it for engaging videos in ANY size you can imagine. Square, rectangle, even vertical video–perfect for Instagram Stories and Snapchat.
New One-Tap Animations – Now on iOS & Android
We’ve added 12 new animation effects to Spark Post’s mobile apps. These modern effects make your text move in a single tap. Hit play on each of the text animations below to see some of the new motion in action. And simply tap any of the buttons below from your phone to make them your own! There are more effects to discover in the app, so make sure you check it on iOS or Android.
To apply a text animation, simply tap “effects” from the home editing screen on iOS or Android. From there, choose the effect that best fits your message and save the Post as a video. Boom! Social content creation doesn’t get easier than that!
Animated Stickers from GIPHY
Text isn’t the only thing you can make move in Spark. We’ve integrated with GIPHY to bring you an ever-evolving library of animated stickers! Adding a sticker to your graphics is easy. Tap the plus button, select sticker, and search GIPHY’s library of funny, quirky, and #relatable gifs to add anywhere on your design. Be sure to save your creation as a video when you’re done. Right now, this feature is only available on Spark Post’s iOS app. Stay tuned, Android and web users, we’re working on it.
Bonus! Celebrate Pride with Adobe Spark and GIPHY!
We teamed up with artist Carra Sykes to create custom GIPHY stickers for Pride Month. Search “Pride” or “Adobe” within Spark’s GIPHY library to get access to fun rainbow stickers or remix the design below and check out all of the creations now live in the app.
