Adobe recently launched Adobe Portfolio, an easy way to share your creative work with the web. In this article we’ll take a look around and answer some of the questions I’ve been asked.

Portfolio is a great way to make your Behance, or aspects of your Behance account to be viewable by all giving you a ‘shop window’ of your work.
