Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Prepare your assets, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instuctor] In this chapter we're going to talk about…how to best display your work.…So let's just take a look at…how I'm doing it.…So we come to the work section…where we have these thumbnails…that have rollovers,…and these all branch off to the separate…project pages where there is…a slideshow with captions.…So what we're going to do here…is we are going to create these gallery images…and in the subsequent movies in this chapter,…we'll be creating the thumbnails…and the rollover states for those thumbnails.…
So how best to display your work.…One option is you can just work with…flat screen captures, and that's fine.…A problem with that is that you often…end up with things in different aspect ratios.…You've got vertical shots,…you've got horizontal shots, square,…and that can be a bit problematic.…So it helps to have a standard size of stage.…And that's something that you can achieve…with photographs.…If you feel like photographing your work yourself,…obviously that is going to be…the most customized option.…
