Adobe Spark Post

Spark Post is a quick and fun way to add personality to your graphics. The thing we love most about this app is the ability to add motion to your text and other design elements. If you pay for a monthly subscription, you can add your company’s logo to the graphics you create.


Be honest: you’ve judged someone for posting a collage with a leopard print background and heart stickers, haven’t you? 😉 While wild, spunky collages might be fine for your friend to post (barring our personal design tastes), busy backgrounds are not the way to professionally represent your business. Layout from Instagram is a simple collage building app with clean, crisp lines.


Snapseed is a professional photo editing app developed by Google. It’s easy to use and edits with precision. Snapseed is perfect for tuning up your pictures and helping them appear crisp and professional. Instagram filters have their place, but we recommend starting with an awesome photo first. Snapseed can help you do that.
