Adobe Portfolio: First Impressions

For those of you who haven’t heard, Adobe has pushed out a “Website Maker.”

Meet Adobe Portfolio, the perfect way to showcase your pictures.

Adobe Portfolio was released today by Adobe (ADBE) in order to help artists showcase their photos and designs on the web. The program boasts “no coding” is necessary for users to begin. Although the platform is targeting mostly artists and photographers, the platform can be used by anyone.

As always, our Webdesine team was on the spot to analyze and give you their impressions. Here is what one of our designers said about Adobe Portfolio.

“I think that Adobe is trying to solve a problem with this platform. Adobe wants photographers to express themselves and to showcase their works. I think the platform is amazing for photographers and designers. I don’t think that it is the best for small business sites or even for blogs. The experience is a bit vague as well; Adobe gives little to no explanation of how to use the platform. Overall, I would rate it 3 out of 5 stars. Why? Because there are better, more customizable platforms out there. Personally, I cant wait to see where Adobe goes with this. Maybe in the future Adobe will become a predominant web designing platform. Until then, I think I will stick with Wix and WordPress!” – Webdesine Team Member

With a free Adobe ID you get the following:

  • 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.
  • Use your own domain name.

It seems as though Behance has something to do with the new platform, but nothing is clear yet.
