Adobe Slate comes to the Desktop

Turn your words and pictures into a beautiful visual story. In minutes. It's free and easy to create beautiful newsletters, a photo slideshow, reports, invitations and other presentations.

Originally an iPad app, Adobe Slate is now also available on the web! You can now create and edit projects from your desktop – no download required – it works from your browser. Simply sign-in.

On trend, with parallax-scrolling. Parallax sites are great for telling stories. You scroll down, down, down, taking in the text and the beautiful photography as the story unfolds.

With Lightroom integration - images and captions can be pulled in quickly. Create a title, choose a template, add photos, text and publish. It’s automatically hosted for free by Adobe. Simply send the link to share with anybody.

Now part of Adobe Spark
