Adobe Releases Spark Web App and Updates Companion Mobile Apps
 
Thursday, May 19, 2016 9:00 am EDT - SAN JOSE, Calif - Adobe today announced the immediate availability of Adobe Spark, the only integrated web and mobile solution for creating and sharing impactful visual stories. Free and designed for everyday communications, Adobe Spark empowers anyone - including small businesses, social marketers and students - to create stunning visual content that engages audiences across multiple channels and looks great on any device.
 
“Today anyone can create content and share it via social media, but most people lack the skill, time and resources to create something that cuts through the online clutter,” said Bryan Lamkin, executive vice president and general manager, Digital Media at Adobe. “With Adobe Spark, anyone can create authentic, professional looking visual content for their project, passion, cause or business."
 
A new service that is part of Creative Cloud, Adobe Spark brings Adobe’s 30-plus years of technology and innovation for creative professionals to creative consumers. The Adobe Spark web app seamlessly syncs with Spark Post, Spark Page and Spark Video iOS mobile apps, allowing users to create, edit and share their story from wherever they are - regardless of their design experience.
 
The integrated solution consists of:
 
  • Adobe Spark web app: a browser-based web experience for creating social posts and graphics, web stories and animated videos.
  • Spark Post: an iOS mobile app that enables anyone to create stunning social posts and graphics in seconds.
  • Spark Page: an iOS mobile app that helps users create beautiful web stories.
  • Spark Video: an iOS mobile app that enables users to create compelling animated videos in minutes.
Helping Entrepreneurs and Businesses Succeed
 
As part of its focus on everyday communications, Adobe Spark is designed to help solo entrepreneurs and small businesses succeed. Adobe is collaborating with Facebook Blueprint - a new global education and certification program to help agencies and advertisers achieve their business results through marketing on Facebook and Instagram platforms. Facebook Blueprint users will benefit from Adobe’s expert guidance through tutorial content on how to successfully market themselves on the Facebook and Instagram platforms using Adobe Spark.
 
Adobe Spark is also partnering with Change.org, the world's largest social change platform, to co-create training materials for petitioners and change agents. Petitions with a video receive six times more signatures than those without, and Change.org petitioners will gain access to Adobe Spark resources for creating effective explainer videos for cause-based and crowdfunding campaigns that further their causes.

From Savage Universal:
 
The photography equipment manufacturer marks its nineteenth presence at the convention with an array of new product demonstrations for LED lighting, paper backgrounds and support systems
 
CHANDLER, AZ – MAY 18, 2016 – Savage Universal, the worldwide leader in backgrounds and photographic products, is pleased to announce that it will be returning to Photokina for the company’s nineteenth time as an exhibitor. Photokina is the world’s largest trade fair for the photographic and imaging industries and has been held in Cologne, Germany biennially since 1950.
 
Savage Universal will be showcasing popular studio photography backgrounds like seamless paper, collapsible backdrops, and Translum, as well as new, innovative studio equipment like LED light interview & portrait kits, auto-extending light stands and macro photography tools. The manufacturer has focused product development efforts over recent years towards expanding in the lighting and equipment spectrum, introducing items new to the market and exclusive to the brand to secure its position as the professional’s choice in studio gear.
 
Essential for every photography studio is proper lighting, and Savage welcomes attendees to demo the Cobra LED Light Kit at its exhibition this year. Three included 204 high-efficiency “chip on board” LED lights with an ultra-thin, lightweight design attach to the new patented Drop Stands, along with an exclusive flex arm and counterweight system. Color temperature can be adjusted anywhere from 3200K to 5600K and provides an extra-long 3 hour run time when used with included high-capacity Sony battery. Also on display this year will be the new Luminous Pro LED Shooting Tent. With LED light strips running from front to back, this shadowless light source is designed to bring out the true colors of any tabletop product being showcased.
 
Diving into the world of macro photography, new Macro ART Variable Auto-Extension Tubes will be featured with a special, flexible Dual Arm LED Light, designed for even lighting of macro subjects to capture fine detail at close range. The extension tubes are exclusive accessories for DSLR macro photography that combine the three most common automatic extension tubes into one integrated range.
 
Background stands and light stands are also among the focus this year. The new Savage Drop Stand is the most convenient and speedy light stand on the market. Its gravity-collapsible and expandable legs allow for easy repositioning of lighting when moving between groups and in tight spaces, with air-cushioned durable aluminum components. In addition, the new Universal Background Stand is comprised of 3 upright stands with a unique middle bracket to allow for a corner setup with two backdrops or 7.3m extra-wide productions.
 
Having recently extended its line of popular paper backgrounds in 2015, Savage is proud to present Printed Background Paper at Photokina for the first time. Printed with state-of-the-art high definition printers, realistic backgrounds that photograph beautifully are produced in patterns like wood, brick and bokeh in a convenient 1.34m x 5.5m size.
 
“We are proud to commemorate our history in the worldwide photographic industry with each Photokina experience and look forward to being a part of the world’s largest photo conference once again this year,” said President Syl Hank.
 
B&H carries Savage Universal gear.
