Build a web presence that exhibits your design, photography, or video. Adobe Portfolio offers a variety of themes with unique layouts to present your projects equally well on phones, tablets, and desktop computers.
Before You Start
Go to portfolio.adobe.com and click Get Started Free. To publish your site, you will need to have an active Adobe Creative Cloud account. Feel free to download the practice image if you’d like to use it to follow along with these steps.
Step 1: Start a Collection
To make a multipage site, choose Collection of Work.
Step 2: Pick a Theme
Check out the available themes and choose your favorite; we used Ludwig for this project. You can switch themes at any point.
Step 3: Explore the Theme
Click through the images and sections to see if you like the layout of the theme. If you do, click Use This Theme to start adding content.
Step 4: Add Your First Project
By default, each theme includes a Work and a Contact page that you can customize with your own content. The Work page allows you to add multiple projects as subpages within the collection. (If you already have projects on Behance, you’ll see that portfolio pages were already created for them.) To add a new project, click the + (Add Page) icon in one of the grids and then select Page.
Step 5: Create a Project Page
Add a project title, make sure the Destination is set to Work, and click Create Page.
Step 6: Upload Your First Image
Click the Image icon, find the image you want, and click Open.
Step 7: Fine-Tune the Layout
You can adjust the spacing around different sections of a page. To edit your page header margins, hover over header area, click the pencil icon, and select Customize. Use the sliders to set the Top and Bottom values.
Step 8: Describe Your Project
Click the + icon above the image and select Text.
Step 9: Format the Text
Select your text, choose a font, and customize the size, color, and alignment. Click the back arrow in the side panel when you are done.
Step 10: Tell Them About You
To add an About page, click the + icon in the sidebar. Add a title for your page, choose Navigation for the Destination, and click Create Page.
Step 11: Get Social
You can promote your social channels on your portfolio. To do so, click Social Icons in the Navigation section.
Step 12: Add Social Media and Publish
Add the links for each of your social media profiles and tab out of the field to add the icons to your page navigation.
Preview your site at any point by clicking Preview. Click Publish Site when it’s ready to go live.
Make an Impression
You can build up to five sites. Create portfolios for different aspects of your work and share them with @AdobeCreate so others can find you and discover what you do.
