I've setup a portfolio site

After using just Flickr for years, I've finally got around to building a portfolio site. Part of the inertia was the plethora of photography web-site builders. I was never happy with any of them. However, with my Adobe subscription for LR and PS there is an Adobe portfolio service thrown in for free. It's not the easiest of things to use, but I'm overall quite pleased with the result. It's not perfect, but it's OK. It's responsive (i.e. works on both desktops and mobile) which is nice.

I'm still building content but there's probably enough there now to make it worth a visit. If you fancy a look and giving any feedback I'd be very interested.

You can find it here: https://paulkaye.myportfolio.com/Home

Re: I've setup a portfolio site

The site looks good and is nicely laid out. The pictures look better than mine.

Re: I've setup a portfolio site

The quality of the images speaks for themselves, of course, but I quite like the way the galleries work to display the content. It's simple and straightforward, and runs quickly enough.

However, is there any way to add any captions, titles or notes to the separate images, Paul?

That's a good point Mark and it'll be the next thing I'm planning to do.

Re: I've setup a portfolio site

That's a fine site Paul, if you look at the pictures via a 4k screen the details are outstanding, text would be good but the pictures speak for themselves, i'd like to try something similar but not with Adobe as I now have Affinity

Re: I've setup a portfolio site

I've looked at the Street gallery so far and it is excellent. Have saved the site to favourites so I can dip in without going through the forum.

Thanks for the feedback Graham. I don't have an iPad so that's helpful info. I'll do some searching on the Adobe site and see if there are any known issues.

Re: I've setup a portfolio site

Hi Paul,
Nice work - cracking images.
Started a portfolio site today myself actually. Not finding it particularly easy to use either.
Won't be going public just yet!
Cheers,
Pete.
