Behance: creating a project
Step 1: Click on “Create a project” on the website’s home screen. You will be taken to the “Content” page, where you can upload your files, add text, embed URLs, Lightroom photos and even collages.
Step 2: clicking on “Cover”, you define the image that will appear on your Behance profile as a preview of your project. Don’t forget to enter a title for the project. Click on “Cut and continue” to proceed with your creation.
Step 3: Now it’s time to configure your project’s settings in Behance. Inform the categories in which it fits, what software was used, if someone helped you during the creation and, last but not least – the copyright. It is also worth informing whether the image has adult content or not so that Behance can filter it according to the age of users.
Step 4: Click “Save” to leave the project saved as a draft or “Publish” so that it is posted directly to your portfolio.
