To help the less design savvy create graphics for their social posts, Adobe has a new app that's driven by so-called Design Filters. The app is Adobe Post, and similar to Instagram, it relies on a collection of pre-selected designs instead of photo presets to create the final result. Once you've decided on a look, Post allows you to change the font, colors and other elements before beaming the image out to Facebook, Twitter and other social streams.

Adobe's main goal is a quick and easy way for folks to create graphics with photos they've taken or with a stock image available inside the app. If you have a favorite font that you use on the regular, don't expect to be able to employ it here, as Post only allows for the options it offers and you can't upload your own. However, rather spending several minutes trying to decide on a color combo, the app will automatically suggests a palette based on the background image, which can come in pretty handy. If you can't come up with a good idea, there's an Inspiration Wall of templates to get you started.

Post is the third entry in what Adobe refers to as its storytelling apps. The new software joins Voice and Slate which help users create videos and web-based layouts for presentations and more. If you're looking to give it a shot, Adobe Post is now available for free from the iTunes App Store.
