Adobe portfolio tool quick view

Adobe the giant of multimedia software released Adobe portfolio early 2016, which is for designers and creators who lack web development and design to create their own fully responsive portfolio or personal website. The website uses simple click and drag to add pages and content after you have chosen an initial template from the many available.

Makes building a portfolio easily

If you have a subscription to adobe cloud then Adobe portfolio is free to use, otherwise it gets packaged with other Adobe apps and you can buy access to these. It makes alot of sense for Adobe to have this tool, as Adobe is used by many talented artists and designers who must ensure they have a web presence. Portfolio gives them the opportunity to do this easily. Without needing to learn responsive web design and web hosting even though there are plenty of resources like templates and bootstrap that make this process easier.

A well rounded tool

Personally i am not used to the slight delay when using browser click and drag applications and would absolutely like to see Adobe incorporate the Portfolio aspect into dream weaver or make a standalone app for Portfolio. Portfolio is not something i would use, but i did enjoy getting inspiration from some of the templates they have available. From the highlighted portfolios i visited Adobe actually followed web design principles for speed and load order, which i was surprised with. Adobe also has settings to apply SEO principles to your portfolio which is a credit to Adobe for doing that.

I have an Adobe cloud subscription and usually stick to just Premiere pro, Photoshop and a little bit of Lightroom but Adobe making moves into web design and development is something to look forward to.
