Mobile Apps for Perfect Images

The article I read by Social Media Examiner on the class Facebook page “4 Mobile Image Apps that Create Amazing Visuals” was an interesting read. The apps featured were Prisma, Ripl, PicMonkey and AdobeSpark. Now, I have had some experience using Adobe Spark Video so I chose to go with Adobe Spark Post to try it out. I will experiment more with the others later but wanted to give my opinion on Adobe. I love their product. It is easy to use, I can start it while I am out on my mobile app and I can continue to work at home just by signing in to my adobe account. Here are the top 6 things that make Adobe Spark appealing to me.

  1. Images are very easy to integrate into the app

  2. I can pick from various layouts and rearrange pictures and text the way I want it

  3. I can add visually appealing banners, boxes, shapes to any of my work

  4. I can choose from any of the color palettes or make my own

  5. Adding text is very easy and I get to pick from a variety of fonts and place the text where I want it on the image

  6. You can choose what platform you are using your image for….facebook, instagram, blog, twitter…..and it RESIZES it for you! (this is my favorite feature I think)

Recently my kids went to Florida and I didn’t get to go with them. I decided to try and put together some pictures for them from their trip. I will only post one because I don’t know that they would appreciate me sharing all of them. I thought the background was beautiful though and I like the way the post turned out.

Adobe Spark

You should try it out! Let me know what mobile image apps you currently use and love and why…would love to hear about them. And here is a link to a tutorial on using Adobe Spark from youtube. 

To Merge or Not to Merge

The question came up in the article by Mari Smith, “Should you merge your personal account with your fan page?”

So… I don’t have any fans really, besides my children and they are just kinda required to like me. Ha!

But I thought I would share a little bit about why I didn’t want to merge my personal account with my business page for this class. I like to know exactly what I am doing. I like to post things I am confident about and feel good sharing. I am learning here so I chose to opt out of merging with my personal account and make a new account for the business page. I think merging is a great idea if you are only using it to connect in the business world. I think if you use it at all on a personal level, it would be hard to keep some things private and only share and read comments from those that really matter to you. Friends and family. Sometimes we don’t need strangers comments or opinions. That would definitely be my reason for keeping them separate.
