The creative software company Adobe has cornered a large portion of the market. Designers always have alternatives, but many of the largest firms still rely on Adobe software to this day.
This gives Adobe a certain insight into the industry that can’t always be found elsewhere. And this insight gives them a chance to build products useful to creatives like their new Adobe Portfolio (myportfolio ) .
At the moment this launch is still in early access beta, however interested people can request an invite via e-mail.
myportfolio will sync with services like Behance which allows you to showcase your work from a trusted domain.
If you look over the features page you’ll find a lot more info regarding how & why Adobe Portfolio ( myportfolio ) could be seriously useful to creative professionals.
- 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.

If you don’t know much about building websites and need a free alternative then Behance is great. But Adobe Portfolio could offer a much more professional look when it launches at some point down the road.
