Most importantly, 2019 was the year for being playful. Keeping it light and fun while getting the job done is our vibe on the Spark team.

We’re proud to create templates to help your silliness soar.
Your first step is to think about where you intend to post your image, as social post graphics can come in a variety of sizes while Instagram photos are generally square. Select your format carefully so that your graphic doesn't end up being cut off or looking poorly formatted if you share to a variety of outlets.
Next, look through templates to find a theme that best suits your post. You can choose anything that captures your vibe from seasonal to silly that best highlights your message.
For even more one-of-a-kind personalization, upload your own photo (or choose from Adobe Spark's awesome stock photos) to put in the background of your image. This creates added depth and your own unique touch to your template.
Add your message into the template, then choose the perfect font to make your post a true show-stopper.
The final step lets you easily share your message directly from Adobe Spark. Simply hit download to save your finished product and then you can upload your image to any social channel.
