Learn how to sign in to Behance.
- [Instructor] Here we are at the Behance website, behance.net. Now, the Behance networking services are owned by Adobe and your Behance account will be connected directly to your Adobe ID. If you already have one of those, possibly the very same one you used to log in to Creative Cloud, you can jump straight up to the Sign In link and sign in there, and then relax for another minute or two while we get everybody else sorted out. Don't disappear though if it's your first time here, as we are going to cover some other important stuff before this movie is done.
Okay, otherwise, if you're not a Creative Cloud member or you've never signed up for any other Adobe services, that's what we're going to cover right now. So, you should find a nice big Sign Up button at the top of the screen, so go ahead and click that, and then you'll be taken to this form to get your Adobe ID and then, by extension, your Behance account. So, I'm going to sign in here as Tony and then Harmer like so.
And now I'm going to enter my email. So, this is a different one to one I usually use. This one doesn't have an ID attached to it. And then I need to create a password and you can see here that there are requirements for the level of password. You can't just type in Blueberry, for example, that would be really, really silly, and could potentially compromise you and/or the service. So, you've got to include at least one number or symbol, include both upper and lowercase latin characters, and it must be at least eight characters long.
Now, there are different password generators and services like 1Password, which is an excellent password manager, will generate them for you. Even some browsers like Safari will do that. But, here, for example, I'm just going to type one of my own here and hopefully that will be sufficient. Is that eight characters long? And you can see that once you've satisfied that condition, you can move on. I am in the United Kingdom, which it detected when I came here anyway. Then, once again, we're going to just hide this bit from you.
I'm also very interested in illustration and I'm interested, also, in product design and advertising, and, let's just say, crafts, just for now. And if you're not, you can just click away from that and it turns off. Once you've done that, you can click and it will show you your custom feed. You get a welcoming message like so and you can opt-in or out of the email system for Behance. So, as you can see here, if you want to get inspriation and updates via email.
I get quite enough email already, so I'm just going to say No Thanks to that one, but, of course, you may choose to do something different. And that's it, you are in. What you need to do now is to set up your profile and that's exactly what we're going to cover in the next movie.
In this course, professional illustrator Tony Harmer shows you how to share and promote your work with Behance. He teaches you how to build a custom digital portfolio that syncs changes to your Behance projects and allows you to keep your own unique URL.
