1) Edit Cover Text Sections
We’re happy to announce that this much requested feature has been added.
You can now separately edit and change the cover text information for each Project (Creative Fields, Date, Project Name). For example, your project date is the date that you created the project, but what if you actually painted the piece several years earlier? Now you can update for accuracy and customize it however you’d like. (To Use: Design –> Project Covers –> Change Project Text)
2) Add ProSite Badge to your Behance Profile
All ProSite users now have a “ProSite Badge” on their Behance Portfolio that will offer an
easy way for anyone to visit your ProSite, and make them aware that you’re using the service, driving more traffic to your page and making all of our properties even more connected.
In our effort to provide you the best tools possible to make your customized online portfolio, we added the following features this week:
Animated gifs in project covers
Want to add some movement to your Gallery? You can now upload animated .gifs as your project cover.
Password protection on specific pages
Though you’ve always been able to password protect your entire ProSite – you
can now protect entire pages. Maybe you have one gallery to show clients exclusively,
or in-progress work to other creatives? Go crazy with it.
Now, you can seamlessly integrate your Tumblr or WordPress blog into your ProSite.
This blog post will explain the ins-and-outs or adding this. Have fun!
Upgrade between monthly and annual
Regardless of what plan you signed up for, you can now change your plan from
monthly to annual, or vice versa.
[An example of Tumblr blog integration on ProSite]
Seamlessly integrate your WordPress or Tumblr content into your ProSite using the new blog integration tool!
To import your blog, just go to Pages and select “Blog” from the drop down. You’ll be able to name this page whatever you’d like.
Next, choose WordPress or Tumblr.
After the jump, step-by-step instructions on adding your Tumblr or WordPress.

We just released a new feature on ProSite that allows you to upload a Custom Web Clip.
A Web Clip is the icon that appears on a user’s iPhone, iPad or Android device if they save your website to their device (looks like all your other apps).
Once you set this up, you’ll have an easy, professional way to access your ProSite in one click – not to mention show it to others. We’ve also stripped away elements of the browser so that your ProSite will feel like an app - no distractions at all.

ProSite launched with the ability to display Hi-Def images in a lightbox – up until now, Behance has always displayed 600 pixel images, so we’re happy to now offer you the option to showcase your larger images in all their hi-def glory.
This week, we took it a step further and are now offering a SLIDESHOW option. Now, you can click through a project’s hi-def images within the lightbox.
[See this in action here: http://akosmajor.prosite.com]
Bonus: If you’re a ProSite user, you’ll be able to extend this hi-def option to your projects on Behance.net in addition to ProSite.
How do I upload hi-def images?
When you upload work to Behance, we automatically store your full-sized images, so if they’re larger than 600 pixels, you’ll automatically be able to open these images, full-sized, by clicking on them in your project. We’re been storing full-sized imagines since December 2010, so if you have a project older than this, you will have to re-upload your images into your project in order to see them full sized.
We’re excited to announce a brand new feature on ProSite: Cover Loading Effects!
ProSite users can now choose to have their project covers fade in with several ways to customize, including fading speed, going project by project, row by row, or all at once, and more.
See fade loading effects in action at maartendeckers.prosite.com
To turn this on in ProSite, click the On button next to Cover Loading Effects under the Project Covers section. You can also Preview the effect before applying it to your projects.
Look for even more cover loading effects to be added in the coming weeks!
ProSite launched just a week ago, and already, we’ve been rapidly adding more features as we listen to feedback from early users. To keep you up-to-date on what you can expect from ProSite in the near future, here’s a teaser of features to come:
1) Blog Integration
Many of you have requested the ability to embed your blog (hosted on something like Tumblr, WordPress, etc) into your ProSite account. We agree that this is a great feature and would make for a more robust portfolio site. We’re currently working on adding this, and will update you on a timeline when we have a more solid date.
2) Password Protection to Specific Pages
As it stands now, you can password protect your entire ProSite, but soon, you’ll be able to Password Protect specific pages. So, maybe you have a few projects that you’d only like Clients to be able to view – put these projects in a new gallery on your ProSite, and Password Protect this “Client Gallery” while keeping the rest of your ProSIte open for all to view.
3) Upload Text OR Image in Website Description Box
We got requests for more flexibility in the Website Description box found in the 2-column layout. Soon, you’ll be able to upload EITHER an image or text (rather than just text). Our aim is to allow you endless customization, so we hope you enjoy this feature!
4) Adding full-size images to Projects (larger than 600 pixels)
Soon, you’ll be able to upload full-size images in the project view if you’d like. This will add a whole new element to your projects, where image are currently limited to 600 px (though the full-sized image can be opened in a lightbox).
We’re pleased to announce that ProSite is officially launched! Our new service will allow creative people and teams to create fully customized portfolio websites through a revolutionary drag-and-drop interface. And, you won’t have to touch a line of code. Visit ProSite.com to get started (and login with your Behance info) and check out the gallery of ProSites that have already been created.
If the ProSite buzz hasn’t reached you yet, we’re happy to announce that our personal portfolio site service is in limited Beta release.
