How to Add Text to Videos

  1. Upload Your Content

    Open up your Adobe Spark Video mobile app. Upload your filmed content to your timeline, and choose the size format that suits your needs by tapping “Resize.”

  2. Add Text

    To add text, press the “+” button in the center of your video. Use the size controls to make your font larger or smaller. Once you’ve typed in your caption, you can drag and move the text on the video to adjust the size and placement.

  3. Customize Your Design

    Above your video, tap “Theme” to explore font and color variations. Be sure to test run each theme, as they feature animated text effects that will add spark to your video!

  4. Explore Layout Options

    Click the “Layout” button to see your options for text placement. Choose fullscreen, split screen, caption, or title and text, based on your editing needs.

  5. Revisit and Revise Your Video Edit

    Adobe Spark Post saves your design so you can go back and make additional changes. Revise the video size, add new music, or tack on opening and closing credits. No edits are permanent, so you can always revert back to your original version for future needs.
