Pocket Portfolio Is Closing June 30th, 2024

Dear Pocket Community, In the realm of creative education and digital presence, the journey we embark on with our users is one filled with innovation, growth, and sometimes, difficult decisions. Today, we find ourselves at a crossroads that demands such a decision, one that shapes the future of our services and, most importantly, the success of our valued community.


As we reflect on the path that has led us here, it's clear that our core mission at PRO EDU—to provide unparalleled educational content and tools for digital artists and photographers—requires our undivided attention and resources. It's with this focus on excellence and dedication to our mission that we've made the tough decision to sunset Pocket Portfolio and end all services.


The global pandemic has undoubtedly reshaped the landscape of digital platforms and services, presenting challenges that have affected us all deeply. For a small company like ours, these challenges have emphasized the importance of concentrating our efforts on what we do best: crafting the finest educational experiences and resources for you.


This means that, regrettably, we will be discontinuing Pocket Portfolio and ending all support by June 30th, 2024. This decision was not made lightly, and we understand the inconvenience and adjustment this transition may require. Our priority is to ensure that your talents and hard work continue to be showcased in the best light, without interruption.


To aid in this transition and as a gesture of our appreciation for your understanding and loyalty, we're excited to offer you a complimentary one-year membership website to Bloom.io, totally free with the code PPPROMO during account setup.


Our partnership with Bloom.io ensures that you have access to a robust and innovative platform to manage your brand and online portfolio, reflecting the quality and professionalism of your work.


We encourage you to begin downloading all of your photos and migrating your assets, URL, and setting up your new website with Bloom.io at your earliest convenience, ensuring a smooth and seamless transition before the July 1 deadline.


This moment marks a pivotal shift in our journey, not just for Pocket Portfolio but for each of you, our creative community. As we close one chapter, we turn our full attention to enhancing and expanding our educational offerings, reaffirming our commitment to empower you with the best tools, knowledge, and resources to thrive in your careers. 


We are deeply sorry for any disruption this decision may cause. Please know that our team is here to support you through this transition, ready to assist with any questions or guidance you may need.


Thank you for your understanding, patience, and trust in us as we navigate this change together. Your creativity, passion, and pursuit of excellence inspire us every day, and we look forward to continuing to support your journey through the exceptional content and tools at PROEDU.com.
