Portfolio Hosting – Why & Where

Portfolio Hosting – Why & Where

Every creative artist needs a place to showcase his/work. While some have their own sites, where they do showcase their work, some of them aren’t so. That’s where Portfolio Hosting sites come into the picture, These sites help you create and easily maintain a digital portfolio of your works.

This works wonders for even those artists who have a site of their own.

Sometimes, their site is hard to update for a number of reasons (lack of knowledge, lengthy process when creating thumbnails, cropping images etc) and these sites make it easy to update your portfolio. Some are paid and some are feature limited with free plans, they differ mainly with the number of creative works you can put up. Here are the one’s we’ve picked out for you
