Adobe Spark Training For Beginners
Adobe Spark is a versatile tool used for creating graphics, stories, and animated videos which can be used for marketing, educational, and training purposes. While originally intended to enable the creation of high-quality magazine-style web “stories,” these single-page creations can easily be used as a standalone website. Adobe Spark also comes bundled with a social media graphics creator and a tool to create animated videos. Whether you’re selling a service, publishing journalism, creating a portfolio for your creative work, or just want to build a simple site to share your passion, this might be the tool you’ve been looking for.
In this one-day course, you will learn how to create visuals that allow you to connect with your brand’s audience as well as create layouts, add text, and work with colours. You will also gain hands-on experience in creating professional-looking video stories and techniques on video creation such as storyboarding, adding, editing videos, and incorporating music and text will also be shared.
