Adobe released a new feature for the photographers and other creative using its Creative Cloud services, which promises to help build a personalized portfolio website in minutes.
Seeking to assist creatives in sharing the work they create using its software, Adobe Portfolio will automatically sync projects with the user’s Behance profile

“Because the portfolio is the new visual resume, Adobe Portfolio lets creatives in any field easily design a customized website outfitted with extensive galleries of work—providing a vital opportunity to convey skills, style, and specialties in a way that captures the all-important first impression”, Adobe’s Head of Community Management and Product Marketing Sarah Rapp wrote on the company’s blog.
You begin by choosing a layout, which can be switched at any time, and then customize the site to your heart’s desire.
Below are some of the features included, as published by Adobe:
- Access Typekit’s library of fonts
- Live editing lets you see your changes as you make them
- Direct access: Anything you can see, you can edit
- Preview your website responsively on desktop, tablet and mobile
- Create projects on Portfolio or Behance and sync between the two
- Option to disable right-click to protect your images
- Option to enable lightbox presentation of your images

Adobe Portfolio is free of charge for subscribers of Adobe’s Creative Cloud services and is ready to be used.

Once your portfolio is up, Adobe will help you get traffic via the Behance platform:
“Behance.net is the world’s largest platform to showcase and discover creative work. Use Portfolio to create a beautiful custom website, and use the Behance platform to network and get discovered. When you choose to sync your Portfolio projects with your Behance profile, millions of viewers can discover and interact with your work”.
