Adobe’s Portfolio lets you build websites fast, no coding required

adobes portfolio lets you build websites fast no coding required
Aimed at photographers and other creators keen to showcase their visual art, Adobe on Tuesday launched Portfolio, a website-building tool that goes up against the likes of Squarespace, Wix, and Weebly.

The software giant designed Portfolio as a feature-rich yet simple solution for artists who’re looking to build a personalized site with the minimum of fuss. Indeed, the company’s marketing blurb promises results “in minutes,” though no doubt you’ll need a little longer to get it looking just the way you want it.

As with similar services, you can choose from a bunch of templates, adding your content while adjusting the layout to suit your taste.

Features include live editing so you can monitor your design changes in real time, and “direct access” meaning you can edit anything that’s viewable within the interface. Also, Portfolio supports responsive design so your site will look its best across all screen sizes and devices.

The tool offers the option to disable “right click” so visitors can’t “save image,” thereby making it a little harder for image-grabbers to nab your work. Finally, as you’d expect, you can use your own domain name and also track your site’s stats.

For an example of the kinds of sites you can build using Adobe’s new tool, check out these ones here, here, and here.

Portfolio is also a replacement for ProSite, the site-building service created by Behance, a startup that Adobe acquired in 2012.

Adobe’s new Portfolio product is included as part of its suite of Creative Cloud apps and services, so if you’re already a subscriber, you’ll have access to the tool without having to pay extra. If you’re not already paying out for Creative Cloud, Portfolio pricing starts at $9.99 a month, though for that you’ll also get access to Adobe’s powerful Photoshop and Lightroom tools, as well as Typekit and its library of fonts.

You can find out everything you need to know about Portfolio by heading over to Adobe’s dedicated page here.
