With over 10 million members, Behance has the world's largest creative network for showcasing and discovering creative work. It's a fantastic place to find creative inspiration, design collaborators, and new clients. It's also incredibly easy to share your work from XD to Behance in the Share mode of the application.
I've just finished designing out my Scootin' Round website, and I really want to showcase some of my design on my Behance portfolio page. When I'm ready to now share up my work, what I can do is come in and just click on the title of the artboard. Then, in Prototype mode, click on the left-hand side of that artboard to define a flow. Now if I had multiple artboards and this was just one of many artboards, the workflow I'm showing you would upload that full design. So the full interactive prototype. For now, I'm just going with this one portfolio image. I'll come in and give it a name, so I can remember it. I'll call it Behance Portfolio. And next, I'll switch over to Share mode.
Here in Share mode, I have a number of options in the Properties Inspector. I can come in and select if I want to create a prototype for a design review or a usability study. The only rule when I'm publishing up to Behance is, I need to make sure I set the link access to anyone with the link. It's going to be on the Behance website. So users won't necessarily be logging into the prototype. It needs to be publicly shared.
I'll go ahead and click on the Create Link button here and let XD generate that prototype. Now that it's done, I can see here in the URL area on the right-hand side, the Behance button. When I click on the Behance button, I'm directed to a new Behance project page. I'm also automatically logged in to Behance with my Adobe ID. From here, I can come in and add any additional details I might like, like images... some text. I'm just going to go ahead and click on Continue.
And in the second screen, I can come in and continue to create or populate my content. So I might have a thumbnail image that I want to include here on the left. Notice here under Tools Used, it already knows that I used XD. It also carried over that link name that I gave it in the Share mode here, as the project title. At this point, I can continue to make edits, or just click on Publish to push the design live. As I come back into XD, if down the road I continue to make changes to my design, and I want to come in and update this page, all I need to do is come in and make those changes. And back in Share mode, select Update Link here in the Properties Inspector. It's going to keep the connection with Behance. I don't have to go through that process again. It'll just automatically update the artwork that's represented there in that Behance experience.
Well, that about sums up the share to Behance capability. I encourage you to give it a try. For more information on the feature, be sure to check back here in the Learn Center for additional videos and tutorials.
Behance is the world's largest network for showcasing and discovering creative work. In this tutorial, you'll learn how easy it is to share your XD projects on Behance. After defining a flow in Prototype mode, switch to Share mode and set the Link Access to: Anyone with the link. That way, Behance users who are not logged into your prototype can still interact with it. Click Create Link and then click the Behance button to launch your new Behance project page. If you edit your XD project, click Update Link to share the newest version on your Behance page.
