Allow photo edit/crop/resizing of images especially for the glideshow. Transition effect options.
Sometimes the pictures don't show the right part, i.e. have picture of students. It only showed their bodies and their heads were cut off. Some times the pictures are too stretched out. Need the option to edit, crop and resize. Also would like the option to edit transitions.
We’re planning on adding this feature in the near future. Once development starts, we’ll update you.
Let me know if you have thoughts or questions. Happy to help!
Laura Wittig, Spark Page Product Manager
A friend recommended that I use Spark to help his band. Within 2 minutes, this limitation caused me to go back to him and say NO, I will not use an application that doesn't even allow resizing of images.
From what I have been reading in this post, this option/enhancement was said to be coming in the near future back in 2017.
If this is working as expected, than expect me not to use Spark.
So if I can't flip a picture that Spark uploads incorrectly, and I cannot change the focal point then why I am trying to use Spark? I had no idea it had so many limitations. Seems that perhaps I can find a better product with a competitor.
Spark Page treats some images in ways that allow them to be fully mobile responsive, and sometimes individual image placement can work differently than some people expect. Right now, the feature is working as expected if you'd like to achieve an effect where an image fills the entire screen. For more information on how Spark Page treats images, please take a look at our help center article: https://adobespark.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360019941794
As noted in the "Planned Feature" status, we are also planning on releasing a feature that will provide an option to include the whole image in a letterbox for users who do not want any cropping applied to images in fill screen, glideshow backgrounds & split layout backgrounds. For right now, you can utilize the focal point feature to tell us where you'd like to focus your image in fill screen, glideshow backgrounds & split layout backgrounds. We will update this thread when progress is made on that feature.
If this information did not address your question or request, please add a comment and we will do our best to respond.

This is absolutely ridiculous. This feature request has been in the works since 2017. A product manager in May of 2017 stated this feature would be "coming soon!". It's a native feature available in Adobe's flagship product, Photoshop, but isn't available in Spark? And the workarounds are no help. Especially "change the focal point in an image to show the most important parts of it". Doesn't work if the photo is of my kid and his dog, and all I can show is my "kid" OR his "dog". They're BOTH IMPORTANT PARTS! Would switching to A competitive product finally get the needed update??? Probably not. The development team doesn't care enough to implement this feature, so why would they care if I stopped using it?
@ Cindy Lou: thanks for the shovel instead of the %$#

Insert it as a logo as a workaround until they get this feature up and running.
Totally hear you! We're still working on this feature, but in the meantime please remember that you can change the focal point in an image to show the most important parts of it (works great for glideshow, for example). I know it's not a perfect solution, but it should help for some use cases!
yeah its useless without photo editing, honestly i dont know who would release a product like this without that aspect already embedded in it.
I use spark for youtube thumbnails! I need to make pictures smaller stuff(like crop them)
yes, without this feature, Spark is useless to me

Hi...Like the product, but now 2019 and still cannot edit photos.

Ugh!! Can't resize photos and can't find image specs for Spark. Deleting!!!
Just found this post. Can’t believe it. Next step is deleting Spark from my iPad. Useless program.
Laura, that would be great. However, I was told almost the exact same thing in February 2017. That it would be added as a new feature with the next update of Spark in about two to three months. And, here we are, February 2019 and it's still in the planning stage and will be added soon. I'm sorry, but "near future" doesn't seem to be a priority.
It would apear that this has ben an issue that Adove is aware of for several years now. This renders programme useless and is shoddy customer service. Sort it please Adobe, this makes you look like a laughing stock.
I am having the same issue.
I am having the same issue and can't believe this is not a standard feature. It would even be better if I had the dimensions of the box size so I cant at least get the proportions and image size right. I know its supposed to be responsive a min and max size would even give me something
THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE SOME ENCOURAGING NEWS WITH THE GROUP
I too posted this issue sometime back in February 2017, and have been just as frustrated as all of you about the program lacking this feature. In November of last year as one of three (3) follow ups to my original post, I spoke with a supervisor and finally got him to see what we've been talking about. (You don't want to know the logic I had to use to get someone to see the issue. Their engineer team thought you could just "crop" the photo to the size you want, "drop it in" and it would work! Thank goodness for the teachings of Mr. Spock!) The supervisor finally saw the problem agreed to bring it up with their engineers during their weekly "Issues" meeting that Thursday.
I got an email one week ago stating the Adobe engineers are finally addressing the problem and are working on a fix to be released with the next update. I wouldn't hold my breath until the actual program is updated, but an actual "fix it" case log was created, not just the standard, "customer service request" case log. I would give it a month or two before the changes should appear. Cheers!
Adobe Spark doesnt allow cropping/editing of photos. Here's a challenge for Adobe: find any other graphic design app in the universe that doesnt have these features.
