STUDENT WEBSITE PORTFOLIO USING WEEBLY
BUILDING AN ONLINE PORTFOLIO
You are going to use Weebly.com to build an online portfolio.
This is a big project, so.... where do you start?
First -Gather the materials you want to publish on your website.
This will include:
•Start with a collection of your 10-15 best images
•These can be from your photography assignments, life, interests.... but they have to be taken by YOU!
•Open your favorite images. If some of them are from class assignments, remove your name, the assignment name and period from the background.
•Make sure you reposition your images on their background, so they look perfect...
•Crop your horizontal images at 900 pixels wide @ 72 pixels/inch resolution.
•Crop your vertical images at 750 pixels tall @ 72 pixels/inch resolution.
•To save your images go to FILE> SAVE FOR WEB...
•Save them into a new folder on your desktop.
•Call this folder web_gallerypics
•Later, you will create an “artist” statement that can be used in the “about” section of your website -this will be described in more detail at a later date.
