When our team at Behance joined the Adobe family, we had a lot of exciting ideas for how to integrate Behance features into the next generation of creative applications on desktop and mobile. Some of these ideas are coming soon, and others are bold projects that we’re working to accomplish in the long term. A few short-term examples:
- Mobile and desktop apps should be able to recognize who you are and enable you to post your work directly to Behance as a project or a Work-In-Progress.
- You should be able to get feedback on your work within the mobile apps you use to create.
- You should be able to follow someone’s Behance portfolio from within other applications that display examples of projects for inspiration and for learning.
- We want to enable services like TypeKit fonts within the Behance user experience.
We also have some really cool ideas we are exploring for long-term; just to name a few…
- We want to enable Behance members to drag PSDs and other Adobe file formats into a Behance project, and expose metadata and layer information from the files themselves. Doing so would open up possible features like “replaying how a file was made” and searching/sorting projects based on certain effects.
- We want to explore how Behance users can share and “remix” each others’ work (when they’re given permission by the user).
- We want to explore opportunities for Behance members to sell their creations (and/or their services) within and beyond Behance, through the ecosystem of Adobe’s products and services.
Needless to say, all of these ideas require a seamless connection between the tools and services we use to create, and Behance - the service we use to showcase and discover creative work. For this reason, we decided to simplify the login system by converting Behance credentials to AdobeID’s. With a single identity system, we can connect the creative workflow. For most users, your login email and password remain the same. For some users with multiple AdobeID’s, we’ve created an easy way to select your preferred email address for login to Behance.
To be clear, Behance remains a free service there is no requirement to use Adobe’s other products and services. We recognize that many Behance users work in non-digital mediums, and we will continue to evolve the service to showcase and discover creative work of all kinds.
