The Krop Blog
Welcome to the all new Krop.com. We tried to make everything a little better, and some things- a lot better.
Job Hunters: The 'notes' weren't being used very often, so we ditched those. But you liked the stars, and you all wanted a "hide" option for companies that didn't interest you, so we added that. We also made the searching / browsing of jobs and employers a bit more friendly than it was before.
Job Posters / Companies: We cleaned up the shopping cart, and job posting work flow. But more importantly, better site = more high quality candidates. The Creative Database has become a much more viable option to compliment your job postings over the last iteration and the new site reflects that.
Portfolio users: These days Portfolio hosting is the fastest growing part of Krop, and the new Krop site gives us a platform to roll out updates and new styles faster than ever.
Everyone: What gets our office buzzing the most is our new page we're calling Pluck't. Thousands of images are uploaded to the Creative Database every day, Pluck't is a real-time collection of individual works that caught our staff's attention.
As always, we want to know what you think - Questions & Comments: - firstname.lastname@example.org
A refreshing new style just in time for Spring! Skyline uniquely displays all the images in your sets without cropping them into thumbnails by staggering them vertically into rows (that looks a lot better than it sounds).
When a user clicks on one of your images they are launched into a FULL SCREEN image gallery, great for work that happens to be best enjoyed BIG!
Skyline is now available for Creative Pro users
A variation on our popular Minimal style, Grid is available for all creative Pro users and is great for designers and photographers alike with clean lines and simple navigation.

Heydays: Oslo-based design group shows you their great work, how they did it, and what they did it with, all with Howard Hughes-like precision.
Joe Kral: Most designers will call themselves a Typographer, Joe happens to be one the few that aren't lying.
As the Creative Database has grown, so has the demand from users to access their web stats. We spent a great deal of time researching various options including building our own, and decided that Google Analytics was by far the best fit. It's free and incredibly sophisticated, yet simple enough to give you a quick glance at who's visiting your profile.
If you have a Creative Pro account, and would like to activate Google Analytics: Open an account on the Google Analytics website, and paste your unique tracking code into the analytics settings under the "account" tab in your account manager. It's a fresh feature, so please let us know if you have any questions.
