Online Portfolio: Adobe Portfolio

Adobe Portfolio is a great example of a site where you can create your own personalized portfolio.  It is really easy to get started because of the various templates provided.  You can choose which one works best for you as an artist, depending on if you want to showcase a specific type of art, like photography, or if you want the website to have a particular look such as a large cover image.  Users do not even need to know coding skills like HTML or CSS to create beautiful, professional-looking portfolios.  Below is photographer Matthieu Belin’s online portfolio, an example of a website that was created with Adobe Portfolio.

Sites created with Adobe Portfolio can also be synced to Behance, another popular site for showcasing art online.  As you can see, there is a small link on the top right of Matthieu Belin’s website that brings the viewer to his Behance page.  This feature is useful for artists who put their work on several websites and want viewers to be directed to their personal portfolio immediately rather than having to scroll through other websites.

Adobe Portfolio is free with a Creative Cloud subscription ($20/month for students and educators, and $50/month for other users), or $10/month without the Creative Cloud.  I think that it is incredibly useful that this site can be used for free for Creative Cloud users, because it offers an easy way to showcase your work professionally without having to go through another company to do so.  Overall, Adobe Portfolio is a user-friendly, cost-effective way for artists to create professional portfolio sites.
