Adobe Slate Magically Turns You Into a Gifted Story Designer

Kevin Whipps March 31, 2021 · 2 min read

Ever try to have a conversation with your mom about web design? Not everyone gets technology, and if your family falls into that category, the chances of them designing their own webpage is virtually nil. But Adobe is hoping to change that with Adobe Slate — an iPad app designed to give anyone an easy way to create their own stories and deliver them on the web.
First, the price: free. No, you don’t need a Creative Cloud account, it’s free for everyone (although you can connect your CC account if you like). Second, it’s super easy to use. Like the box says, you just create your own page using their templates and you’re good. Drop in pictures, dump in your text and away you go. Pull quotes and the like float into place as you scroll to them, and images are displayed with a parallax feature. It all looks very cool for something that costs nothing.
Just to prove how easy it is to work with, I took all of five minutes and created a quick Slate (is that what we’re calling them?) with a picture of the kids at Home Depot. Here it is — enjoy!
