Behance Beta Tests Patreon-Like Subscriptions for Select Artists

Behance has launched a small beta test that adds the option for some artists to share premium content with paid subscribers with the goal of allowing fans to help financially support their favorite creators.

The move is one of the more notable changes to the platform since it was acquired by Adobe in 2012. Starting today, the company has said that around two dozen artists are part of a test that will allow them to offer premium projects, live streams, and source files in exchange for a monthly fee. This format is similar to Patreon, but is baked directly into the Behance system.

At Behance, we’ve always believed in building and fostering a community that not only inspires but also supports one another. Today we’re excited to share a new way to access premium content from your favorite artists on Behance through subscriptions. By subscribing to a creator, you can support them financially and unlock their premium content.

In a blog post on Medium, Behance explains that subscribers will get access to whatever a creator wants to make available and subscription prices are set by the creator and they have complete control over what they want to share. Once a price is set for a subscription though, it cannot be changed. Behance says that it is important that creators select a subscription price that they do not intend to change. The only way to adjust it is to delete it and make a new one, which also removes all of the subscribers to the previous subscription.

Behance explains that content creators are welcome to include any content they want in a subscription, provided it aligns with the company’s community guidelines. Creators can even share content in the form of a direct link to any asset as a connected “source file” like a link to Dropbox, Google Drive, or Box.

All subscriptions are processed through Stripe, and Behance won’t store any debit or credit card information. Creators are then paid through a Stripe account, and again Behance is not directly tied to this process. Behance doesn’t specifically state if or how much of a cut Adobe plans to take out of subscriptions, but notes that this move is one that could allow the software giant to monetize one of its products beyond the Creative Cloud.


Update: Adobe has clarified the monetization aspect and stated that it does not plan to take a cut of any of the proceeds that creators earn through the platform as long as they are members of the Creative Cloud.

“We’re excited to offer this as a benefit to Creative Cloud members and there is a 0% platform fee for CC members: they keep all their earnings!” an Adobe representative tells PetaPixel.


Behance is only rolling the subscription feature out to a select number of creators that it has listed on its blog, but does state it looks forward to offering subscriptions to a wider range of creators in the near future.

Kodak Moments Now Offers Bigger Range of Same-Day Photo Products

Kodak Moments has announced an improved version of its same-day service with an addition of a larger range of instant products for customers to choose from.

Kodak Moments is part of Kodak Alaris, which was formed as a spin-off from Eastman Kodak in 2013. The company at one point offered photography chemicals, film, and photo paper, but that business was sold to a Hong Kong-based company in July of 2020. Kodak Alaris still owns many popular films and single-use cameras through its Kodak Professional brand.

Kodak Alaris now focuses on information management and print services under the brand Kodak Moments. The company provides photo products and services to both individuals and businesses worldwide, with over 100,000 consumer touchpoints across 30 countries globally. It has updated its Kodak Moments Retail Software to version 11.0 and introduces an expanded line of instant personalized products in addition to bug fixes and other software improvements.

Through this update, the Self-Service Print station, which can be accessed by customers in numerous stores across the country, now features a brand-new customer workflow that further reduces the need for assistance by store workers.

Customers can create their orders using the Kodak Moments Kiosk — including a touch-free order experience — for an instant order pick-up at the Self-Service Print Station, or via mobile app and online for delivery to a local store or shipped to an address. The new addition of instant products includes custom photo gift wrap, acrylic magnets, which come in miniature two by two-inch size, ready-to-hang eight by eight-inch photo wall tiles, canvas, available in gallery or mirror wrap in a variety of sizes, and photo board prints. Kodak Moments also adds that the photo boards will soon be available as collage boards and decor boards, too.

Two years ago, PetaPixel reported that Kodak Moments was trying to bring back photo kiosks to the mass market, with a modern design and a variety of products to appeal to the consumer market. The company appears to have succeeded in this effort as its kiosks can be found in a host of locations like at Target, CVS Pharmacy, Bi-Mart, and Rexall stores, and now it is expanding its offerings. The focus then and now is on smartphone-based orders instead of the more dated SD cards and USB sticks, although those are still compatible.

The new products and features are rolled out to major retailers across the country. All of the Kodak Picture Kiosk store locations within the United States can be found on the Kodak Moments website.


Editor’s note: The original story incorrectly stated that Kodak Alaris had sold its Kodak Film business. We apologize, and that error has been corrected.
