Having an online gallery is one of the best ways to showcase your creativeness to the world however, the biggest challenge we face is it can be time-consuming.
Good thing, there’s an efficient way to collect photos, edit them, then publish it online. If you’re an Adobe Cloud subscriber, there’s a perfect platform for you.
Adobe Portfolio is an online photo management platform that keeps all your photos in one place. It is incredibly easy to use and you can create a curated collection of your best images, which you can share, download, and distribute.
This platform is FREE to any Adobe Creative Cloud plan subscriber. It also integrates with Lightroom, one of the most used photo editing software on the market.
Since it syncs with Lightroom, raw and edited files are compressed to optimize loading and viewing time.
It is also SEO-friendly! This means you can customize Meta Tags, add keywords, and image alt text to your gallery.
