Digital Camera World Verdict

So, I gave Adobe Builder a whirl for my creative portfolio, and you know what – the end results were decent, but let's just say they didn't quite love the experience. Dealing with the themes and gallery layouts felt like navigating a maze, making it a real struggle to infuse my unique style and creativity. Long story short, my resulting portfolio didn't exactly spark the excitement in me to show it off to the world.

Any creative with a Creative Cloud subscription will be pleased to know that they can get immediate access to Adobe Portfolio for no extra charge. This website builder is specifically tailored towards creating online portfolios rather than building websites with multiple different features, such as shops and forms. Adobe portfolio is therefore really just a simple extension of your work. It takes it off your device and presents it to the world in a beautiful way. 

Adobe Portfolio is incredibly easy to use, with clear workflows and icons to guide you through the process of creating a portfolio. The downside to only being a portfolio builder and being so simple is that it really lacks any advanced features that really let you create a more substantial online presence. One of the biggest limitations is that it is not possible to change the layouts of the templates.
