Adobe Spark – Branded Stories

You can now brand your Spark Pages with your own logos, colors, and fonts. If you are a paid Creative Cloud user, this premium feature is automatically included in your plan. I can’t wait to try it on my next Spark Page! (Customizing branded assets are also available for Spark Posts and Spark Videos).

Tasmania – Island of Inspiration

I had the opportunity to visit Tasmania last month and spent the last weekend creating an Adobe Spark Page.

I really appreciate how easy it is to create a collection of photographs in Lightroom, sync it across my mobile devices, and use a beautifully designed Spark theme (template) to tell my story.

Joshua Tree – An Afternoon in Solitude

I have finally embraced the fact that I’m an introvert. Not only do I like spending time alone, I need to spend time alone. If you surround me with people day after day, eventually, I will run out of “nice”. I enjoy nature. And silence. Put the two together and that’s when I do my best creative work. So, when I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon driving through a national park by myself, I packed my camera gear, jumped in the car, and off I went.

Photography from Japan – Created in Adobe Spark

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to participate in the CP+ event in Yokohama, Japan. Fortunately, I was able to extend my stay and visit a number of incredible locations in Kyoto and Tokyo.

This weekend, I created a Spark Page of my travels in preparation for my presentation at Photoshop World. I really appreciate how easy it is to make my collection in Lightroom, sync it with my mobile devices, and then layout my story using a beautifully designed template on my mobile device or desktop computer.

Celebrating 2000+ Blog Posts with Photographs from Antarctica

I realized this week that I have posted over 2000 blog posts about Photoshop, Lightroom, Bridge, Camera Raw, Lightroom mobile, and more! In celebration, I thought I would do something a little different by publishing a Spark Page of my recent trip to Antarctica. While being at the right place at the right time is critical when making a photograph, Lightroom and Photoshop are the other half of the equation that enable me to craft my photographs into the stories that I want to tell, in the way that I want to tell them.

Adobe Spark Page – Death Valley

After yesterday’s announcement of Adobe Spark Page (formally Adobe Slate), I decided that it was time to have some fun and post some images from a recent trip to Death Valley. I really appreciate how easy the team has made it to add photos and text (and even video) to a beautifully designed theme (template). It certainly makes it easy to share with others. Click here (or in the image below) to view the completed story.  Enjoy!

Photographs from New Zealand in Adobe Spark

I had the wonderful opportunity earlier this year, to take a week and explore the North Island of New Zealand. I put together a short photo story about the journey using Adobe Slate(now Adobe Spark). (Click/tap the image to see the photographs.)
