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.

New Portfolio Style: Pacific

Just in time for Spring! Our newest style that we're affectionately calling Pacific was added to the gallery today and is available to all pro account holders.

Pacific is a crisp and breezy single page style perfect for displaying interactive or graphic design work that can often get cluttered amongst thumbnail or gallery themed styles.

New Feature: Private Sets

We just launched a Private Set feature for all pro account holders.

This feature allows you to assign passwords to sets of images in your portfolio. You can use one password for multiple sets, or different passwords for different sets. Once you assign a password to a set, it will become invisible to visitors and an "Unlock Sets" link will appear on your portfolio allowing users to access them.

This feature gives you a chance to lay things out before the world sees your new work, and is especially useful to share works in progress with clients.

New Portfolio Style: Charter

Introducing Charter, the newest addition to our portfolio style gallery. Charter is a variation of the Skyline style, which has quickly become one of the most popular looks in the gallery. We moved the title and nav up to the top to make more room for images, and put all sets into a big page, just to mix things up.

Multi Image Uploads (Finally)

Due to popular demand (and a few death threats) we re-worked the image upload workflow for portfolios. It's a lot faster, more stable, and most importantly now supports multiple image uploads.

Happy new year!

New Skyline Option: Lightbox

If you are using the Skyline style, you can now select to have your large images open in a Lightbox style, or the original full screen style - try them both and see which one works best for you.

Brand new... Again

Welcome to the all new 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: -


New Portfolio Style: Skyline

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
