Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Tour of the project, part of Start with a Theme: Photography Portfolios in WordPress.
Before we get started, let's take a look at the end product of this course.…Like I said in the intro, the purpose of this course is to make an online…portfolio where you can showcase your photos and we will do that using two…different free WordPress themes.…This is the first one, it's called Minimatica.…As you can see it showcases your photography right up front on the home page and…also gives you links to important information.…How to get to the Home page, the Portfolio itself, a Blog, a Page About me, and a way to Contact.…
These are standard components of any online portfolio and they are easy to…build in WordPress.…After we are done, you will end up with the site that not only has dedicated…pages for your photos with advanced features like the ability to blow them up so…you can see them more clearly, you also have a custom menu that leads to static…pages, one about yourself, so people can find out more about you and a page…containing a contact form, where people can fill out information and contact you…
