Four new portfolio themes!

New Portfolio Styles

Introducing four all new themes available to all Krop Creative Pro account holders.

Avenue, Hemingway, Roam and Hudson each have their own unique personalities and tricks up their sleeves, so take each one for a spin. We're sure you'll love them as much as we do.

Portfolios now Retina ready

Mobile Styles

All Krop portfolio styles have been updated to display Retina images.

Most new Apple devices -- as well as many new Android and Windows-compatible computers and tablets -- now feature "Retina" or "high density" displays. Basically this means that the screens now have wayyy more pixels than they used to. These devices can render much higher resolution images, which is awesome, and now you're awesome because your portfolio is Retina ready!

Mobile Theme Gallery now live

Mobile Styles

The mobile theme gallery is alive!

Phones and mobile devices have their own unique set of advantages and challenges. For a long time, we have had a unique mobile theme, and even introduced a responsive theme. But now, you can select a specific mobile theme to complement your main theme, targeted specifically at iPhone, Android, and other modern mobile platforms.

All Krop Creative Pro portfolio account holders can now select mobile-specific styles in your portfolio manager.
