  • Adobe Spark is free.
  • You don’t have to download anything. You use it on their website.
  • It has a very easy user interface.

  • They have 24 preset video templates you choose to use. Each one has a specific font, background, and transition between slides.

  • I love that that they have “Find an Icon” or “Photo” button that quickly pulls up options to pick from.

  • They give you  4 different “Layout” styles for each slide allowing you to mix text with images in ways that they feel would best work for views.

...

  • It’s free but to get their logo removed from the credits you have to be a subscriber of Adobe products which is expensive.
  • You can move slides order around BUT I couldn’t in Chrome. Once I switched to Firefox I could do it.
  • You can not change the font assign to each template.
  • Text size can not be adjusted.
  • Slide transitions are specific to a template and can not be changed.
  • You can only change the background image if you use the full-screen + thing layout. Pretty limiting.
  • Images can’t be moved around much on a slide. You’re confined to the 4 layout ways they think they should be placed on the slide.
  • When ready to share their shareable link takes the user to Adobe to see the video, not ideal
  • If you click share to social media buttons, it posts a still image and links you again to Adobe to see the video
  • To get the video play in your feed, you have to download the movie and then upload it.
  • Downloadable video is one size fits all at 1280×720 h.262. You’ll need to adjust it in another software if you’ll need another dimension.

  • Tux Paint is appropriate for children in many ways. It may have an elementary, a bit dated interface, but even young children can find it easy to navigate.
  • The row of buttons are nicely placed to allow users to can create lines, draw shapes, erase and even print drawings in an instant!

  • Intended for young children, there isn’t so much to expect from Tux Paint.
  • For newcomers, the painting tool is a lot of fun, features and sounds. But, after mastering it, children will find it a bit boring and losing its entertaining feel.
  • However, this can usually be addressed by enabling some unlocked features and adjust the settings of mouse, keyboard, audio, video and more.
  • And, another drawback is in its color collection. This painting tool only has some basic colors for additional colors are not available.

  • Lacks adjustment layers, macros (actions), clipping layers, layer groups, CMYK, HDR and 16-bit per channel color support, custom shapes.
  • Feature development can be slow. Some highly requested features have been “in the works” for years.
  • Can be buggy. There is no quality assurance team and it’s up to users to report bugs.
  • Steep Learning curve; documentation is often missing or outdated.
  • The cluttered interface and multiple floating windows can be off-putting for many users.
  • Lacks a quality of elegance in the workflow.
  • The unfortunate name makes it hard to take the program seriously.

SNAPCHAT is a photo-messaging app that allows users to put a time limit on a sent picture, text, or video so the recipient can see it for only a few seconds before it disappears, though replays are available for purchase via in-app transactions.

Users can add friends from their device’s address book and Facebook friends list, or they can enter specific usernames. To send a picture, users take a snapshot using the in-app camera, set a time limit, select recipients, and send. By tapping and holding their own image in the selfie cam, teens enable facial-recognition software that allows them to add animated effects to their selfies.
