Are you a surveyor, selling a house, teaching or learning a language, advertising on eBay or even just having fun on social media? Simply load your image, design your scenes and add an accompanying voiceover and text captions. StoryPix then saves this as a video that can be shared online or with others!

Ebooks and blog

Get inspired by in-depth articles and ebooks on presenting, psychology and storytelling everything you need to engage your audience.



Sparkol was formed in December 2008, and was originally called The Inspiration Engine. The business has taken no outside investment and has grown through product sales. Our slogan is "engage your audience" and we make unique tools that help people get their message across without any design or technical know-how. Our first products were published under the banner of "Sparkol Presentations" and were designed to help our users make their presentations more visually engaging. But it was only when VideoScribe was released in early 2012 that things began to take off.
