Adobe Spark is now Creative Cloud Express

Adobe Spark, is now Creative Cloud Express! You are still able to create images, web pages, and short videos and the platform has a similar look and functionality as Adobe Spark, but with new assets and editing features. All previously created projects are available.The general idea behind Creative Cloud Express is to give non-professionals the tools they need to bring their creative vision to life. You can now search and access Adobe Stock photos and Adobe Fonts from right within the app. Other features include new quick actions to remove a background, convert videos to GIFs, merge videos, convert to PDFs, and more. Creative Cloud Express is included as part of the following Adobe Creative Cloud plans. For more information, visit the announcement page here: Introducing Creative Cloud Express

Get Started with Adobe Express

Express is Adobe's multimedia app for web and mobile, making it easy to create social graphics, web pages, and short videos. BU educators and students can supplement their own images with text and preset fonts and animations to generate captivating and dynamic media that can be used in presentations, course materials, and even web pages.

If you're looking for a way to develop quick combinations of text, video clips, photos, icons, and voiceovers, the articles and videos on Adobe Tutorials will provide you the skills to tackle any project. Adobe Express can be utilized on its mobile app and on the web as a tool for building your course projects.
