  • some queastions on building a portfolio

    Hey everyone,

    I'm planning on building an online portfolio of my retouch & design work.. and attach a blog and some other pages to that as well.. I definitely want to make it in wordpress.. still looking for a nice theme

    a few Q's

    1) What would be better, creating a rollover that would show before & after or just have 2 images next to each other with the B&A effect? IF a rollover would be better, anyone knows of a WP plugin that does just that?

    2) Anyone has some good advice for me to keep in mind when building my online portfolio?

    Thanks a lot!

      If either of you are still looking at Wordpress for your portfolio/blog, there is at least one plugin that will provide before and after effects for images:

      Before After plugin integrates modified version [jQuery Before/After Plugin]( "jQ …

      It is a JQuery based plug in and does not use flash.

        The latest version of Squarespace is pretty good for building portfolios.

          Online portfolio or Print portfolio?
          by Kavou

          I am just wondering if a printed portfolio is still important or necessary (I have my online portfolio) when go in for job interviews?

          I haven't print out any of my new works for a long time!

          How do you handle your web portfolio nowadays? Is it still best to have your own website, or does no one bat an eye if your portfolio is on an image hosting site? Is your promotional website and your portfolio the same thing, or do you keep them separate?
