Today we will capture and create professional quality images and graphics using the FREE Adobe mobile applications Lightroom and Spark Post.

Lightroom CC Mobile

Use Lightroom to capture and edit raw image data, with control over professional capture settings.

Adobe Spark Post

Use Spark Post to create professional quality poster banner social media content quickly and effortlessly.

Lightroom and Spark Post require signing up for a Creative Cloud account.

Synchronized data between applications requires a paid Creative Cloud account. Premium features are also available with paid accounts.

Images shown here were found with the Find Free Images search built into the Spark apps.

Let’s get out from behind our desks and create images and graphics with the device in our hand.
