Slate: Ability to switch off Slate Bumper/Adobe logo in footer

Hello, would love to pay for the Slate app, let's say $10, to have the possibility to switch off the Adobe ad (footer) in each slate. As a photo pro, I need to have a pro looking tool. Ads at the bottom isn't proffessional... Btw - Slater is really great and I love it. Plan to use it for project newsletter etc. THANK you Adobe!
Best, Dietmar (bildwerkstatt.ch)

No, the feedback is not being ignored. But no, I don't think you'll be seeing an option to remove the bumper in the very near future. It's not that we're opposed to doing so, it's more a matter of prioritization. We just released Slate for web, that was a top priority as most of the planet are not iPad users. We have other updates to the products in the works, too, and all of those have been deemed higher priority for now.

Keep in mind that the bumper is Slate's biggest marketing and growth vehicle, and right now it is an important part of why Slate use is increasing. Turning off the bumper will thus also necessitate a change in how we market and promote the product.

While not promising anything, my gut feel is that we will indeed give you the option to remove the bumper in the future. While not the most requested Slate change (that distinction goes to video support) it is definitely high on the list. So I expect that it will happen. But with everything we have coming int he near future, it's going to take a big longer to get there.

I agree. The app looks great and provides a slick simple and professional way to present images and text. The Adobe footer ad spoils that a little, so would definitely vote for a non-freebie version (or version for CC subscribers) that enables it to be removed.

Would also be good to be able to set custom fonts from Google Fonts as a minimal user customisation so one can get some degree of consistency between website/blog and Slate.

I think an ad-free version for CC subscribers is the best/fairest solution. Otherwise, I'd only use Slate for fun, once in a while. But I'd never use it for my photography business.

I agree, it is NOT professional enough at all for business use. I would really love it if ADOBE cc users could remove these ads!

I can imagine font customisation could be tricky, as presumably it's all tied in with the text flow and layout - different fonts might need changes to the balance between heading and body text font sizes, different margins, etc.

To remove the footer ad is rather simple. If you publish the project and then view the source in a browser you can use the HTML and edit and post it anywhere you want. You may need to modify the code slightly, however you can remove the footer and change the font, even embed video and other elements.

I run a small business and this could be an awesome tool for newsletters/brochures. Would love a paid tier without slate promotion at the bottom. Also if possible to embed on my website so the whole story scrolls onsite, that would be awesome!

I think slate has huge potential.

I too wish the bumper at the bottom could be removed or customized by paid Creative Cloud members at the very least. I've been adding a few white images to push the bumper down really far when I send something to a customer. Not the best workaround, but at least my button that's my call to action isn't hindered by Adobe's giant call to action to get Slate.

Yes, a free option for Creative Cloud members is brilliant!!! Little "perks" for our loyalty after CC went subscription based would go a long way especially as other stand alone software competitors like Serif and Affinity rise up to steal market share.

Slate has awesome potential for casual and professional application. The ability to hide the Slate branded footer and assign a custom domain (even if it costs a little something) will make Slate an awesome game changer. Slate would then become the stripped down version of Squarespace. I would imagine there is a HUGE market for the professional, modern look of Squarespace without too many options and monthly cost.

I agree with all the above, however, if Adobe would offer a paid version, I would prefer it to be a desktop, or online application, as typing content with the iPad is just to slow a process to create many pages.

Just in case you weren't aware, there is now a web version. Also, I find using a bluetooth keyboard with my iPad is a really effective way to boost my productivity up to near-desktop speeds. You can pick one fairly cheaply and it's still a lot lighter than most laptops.

There are so many desktop options for quick websites like Tumblr, Wix, Squarespace, etc. I think it being on the iPad is strategic so even a novice can quickly import a few photos from the Camera Roll and type some minimal text and be done. The genius of Slate is the ability to build a quick microsite or temporary site. You can literally crank out something professional looking in a half hour or less which has all sorts of personal and business applications.

I do see where a CC subscriber who doesn't have an iPad would feel slighted though, as if they are paying for this cool new service and can't use it.

Yes, pleas make a version without the add. I am sure any one would be willing to pay 10 USD for it.

One thing I do on my presentations is to insert some blank white images at the end of the presentation. So people think the presentation is over before getting to the Slate Bumper

I believe the product should be capable of producing presentations without the Adobe banner, but only for paid-up CC subscribers.

As presently designed I can use it for fun personal stuff but it would not meet my branding requirements to use for a business project.

Please make possible to remove the Adobe footer - but only for paid CC subscribers.

As presently designed I can use the tool to create some fun things for personal use, but could not use for business applications because of the branding.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Adobe slate end credits.

I'm interested in using this as a part of my graphics, web, and publishing package. Is there a way to get rid of the Adobe credit at the end of the presentation for slate and voice as well?

Hello, can I buy a version of Adobe Slate to avoid the advertising ("Create your own slate") at the bottom of the project-site?

Thanks,

At this time, the Slate App automatically adds the Slate Bumper to the end of all published projects. Currently there is no way to turn this off. Consider making a new or adding to an existing feature request if this is something of value to you as you publish your Slate projects.

With all of the requests to remove this "Bumper" from customers, it should show that this is an issue to almost everyone who uses Slate. Slate is a very useful and fun app. Here's a thought: make the "Bumper" layout very minimal, less than 100px tall. That would really help show that you guys care about the concerns presented here while also making an ad for the app itself. That's a low-hanging fruit option since you don't have to do anything complicated to remove it for some people and keep it for others. Just change the design of it to not intrude into the presentation as much as it does now.
