Behance Updates with @Reply Messaging and a Redesigned Activity Feed
Are you looking for a more collaborative way to follow other artists online and discuss creative work? Behance has announced a few new features that make collaboration between creatives easier, including @reply messaging within project comments. The update includes:
- A redesigned Activity Feed gives you easier access to what matters to you. The new Feed will surface work-in-progress (WIP) projects, which will enable users to receive feedback when it’s needed most: during the creative process
- Notifications will give more prominence to the latest work and appreciations of those you follow, including follow activities and project appreciations
- @Reply Messaging will make conversations easier within project and WIP comments. Now when you mention any other Behance member by name, they will receive a notification
Behance also reminds its members about its upcoming in-person Portfolio Review days, which will happen during the week of November 4-11. In 200 cities around the world, Behance members have organized portfolio reviews sessions where members can receive feedback on their work, hear from experienced professionals and network with their local creative communities.
Behance is an online platform for showcasing photography, graphic design, illustration and fashion. Since it was acquired by Adobe at the end of 2012, the two companies have worked to increase integration between Adobe products like Photoshop and the online creative network, including the Photoshop Photography Program, which bundles Behance ProSite memberships with Photoshop CC for a low subscription price.
According to Behance, its 2 million members have published over 5 million projects to date, and about 20 schools and organizations connect to Behance, including Pantone, RISD, SCAD and Pratt.
In its blog post, the company hinted at further improvements: “We have more surprises for you, and we’re working hard to help you showcase your work more beautifully and easily – and get more exposure and opportunity.”
