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.

All New Creative Database Search

We have just concluded a successful Beta period of our all new Creative Database Search and are happy to officially announce its launch. Our very popular subscription service for talent hunters has been completely rebuilt from the ground up. It's faster, has more powerful search features and is much easier to use than its predecessor. Employers can preview a free demo search or activate a subscription for exclusive access on the Creative Database product page.

CDB Search

Brand new... Again

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: - support@krop.com

Enjoy!

Google Analytics available for your Creative Pro account.


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.

25,000 portfolios hosted + New Styles in March.



We've added some fresh faces to the 'Featured profiles' section on The Creative Database Page, check it out.
