After you've chosen a layout, you can begin adding content to your site. Note that you can also change your layout at any time.
Adding Content to your Site
NOTE: If you're a Behance member and have uploaded Projects in the past, your Projects will import into Portfolio. More info here and below.
Click the "+" icon in the left hand side to get started adding content.
Showcase your creative work using projects. Within the editor, add your images and video files, embed media, add text, and more. Your Projects will sync with Behance, so that you'll only have to upload your work to one place.
Importing Projects from Behance
If you’re already a Behance member with published projects, most of the work involved in making your Portfolio is already done! When you first select a layout, your projects on Behance will import automatically.
You can control what projects appear by clicking the Manage Content button the left side of the screen. You’ll see all of your projects under a Gallery called “Projects.” You can change the order of your projects by clicking the three-lined icon and dragging the project into the desired placement. You can also edit the title, content, and URL/Slug of the project by clicking the gear box or hide the project by clicking the on/off toggle to the far right. Learn more here.
To quickly edit the cover image on your project, hover over the project on your screen and click the black edit pencil. If you want to replace your cover image, select Edit Cover Image. If you want to change or the look and feel or the text that appears on your current cover image, click Customize. To learn more about changing the size or aspect ratio, please visit this article.
Use a custom page to add any other type of content you'd like - this is a blank slate that can be used to create pages like an "About Page," "Contact Page," or anything else that would serve your site. Similarly to projects, you have total freedom to upload the content you'd like and control the design.
Use a gallery page to group your projects. By default, you're set up with one Gallery. On a gallery page, your projects will be represented by customizable Project Covers. Visitors to your site will click on these to view each project. You can create one Gallery that displays all your work, or create multiple Galleries. For example, you may want to create multiple galleries to separate Personal vs Client work, or to display work you do in different fields. In the screenshot below, PROJECTS in the navigation on the left side is the name of the gallery and the links below are Projects within the Gallery.
Add a link out to any other website by choosing "linked page." This will list the page in your navigation. For example, you may want to link to other places on the web, like a blog.
Designing the Look and Feel of your Site
At any time, you can use the "editing remote" (accessible via the pencil icon in the left hand toolbar), to control all aspects of layout and design. You can adjust anything on a project or page level. Depending on which type of page you're editing, you'll see either a Project, Custom Page, or Gallery page styles, in addition to the "global styles" options which will allow you to adjust something for the entire site at once.
A popular place to start is with Fonts--to change the font for your entire site, click the Basic tab of your Editor Remote and click the Font dropdown. To learn about Typekit integrations, click here.
Adding Special Settings
Before publishing your site, you may want to take advantage of some settings which will put extra polish on your site. Click the Gear icon in the left hand toolbar to do thing like Creating a Custom Domain, Search Optimization, Password Protection, and more.
You site won't become public until you publish it. To launch your site, click the green Publish button at the bottom of any Portfolio page. Portfolio is available as a part of any paid Creative Cloud plan, including the Photography plan!
