We love photography and lately we came across a lot of tools and products that can help a photographer create a great portfolio.
If you are a photographer and you would like to find the best way to display and advertise your work, you will need a photography portfolio. Here are some tools and information that may help you create a beautiful one.
You may notice that when it comes to online portfolios, it’s just not enough to have beautiful photos; you also have to find clever, beautiful and user-friendly ways to present them. A great design makes all the difference!
One of the the best ways to catch the viewer’s attention with a photography portfolio is to create a grid gallery. Basically a grid gallery is an image-based grid that can list thumbnails. The main advantage is that you are able to create an impressive collage of your work.
Here’s an Infinite Photo Grid with Lightbox that will make your photos look awesome! It uses an unique way of displaying your images, and it can be dragged indefinitely in any direction and new thumbnails will be displayed. There is a great chance that your portfolio will be noticed on a tablet or even a Smartphone, and this photo grid is tested on mobile devices. Here’s a demo, take a look and see how it looks and works, but of course it will look much better once you load your own photos.
Image sliders are also very popular within photography portfolios. They are user-friendly and they display images beautifully.
HTML5 Image Galleries & Sliders are more and more popular, and can be easily integrated in any website. Check out this a HTML5 XML driven slideshow gallery with thumbnails! It’s one of the most popular slideshows for photography portfolios, it’s easy to use, update and maintain and you don’t even need html knowledge to install it on your website.
Another great feature is that the gallery is resizable adjusting after the browser size, so your photos will appear the same for all your visitors, no matter what browser or resolution they use. Check out some live previews here.
