Recently, we have proudly relaunched our portfolio section for design pros, artisans and craftsmen. Since every new technology can be a bit confusing, we want to share a how-to with you today to make sure you can make the most of your Modenus portfolio. Have a look:
You can see right away that our new portfolios are made to impress our audience. The three main areas are THE HEADER (Banner image, social icons and website link), THE BIO (left sidebar with profile image, bio and contact information) and THE FIELD (with space for unlimited images).
Step 1: Select your banner images. As you can see, you can either drag and drop images or upload one. This one is 425 pixels high and the width adjusts to the screen width so plan to a hi-res image that can be very wide and squatty.
Step 2: Once you’ve uploaded your banner image, click on the little pencil icon in your brand badge on the right of the banner image. This is where you can add your social media URLs and website. When you’re done, click the pencil again.
Step 1: Now that you have a pretty header, let’s move on to the bio area in the left sidebar. Drag and drop or upload a bio pic, you’re pretty face or a logo is fine. To replace the image just click the trash can to get rid of the old one and load a new one. Then click the little pencil icon to add your bio text and contact information – when you’re done, as before, click the pencil again.
Step 1: Your default album tab is set to the word “Images” but you can change it whatever works for you. You can add tabs by clicking the + sign in the top right corner of the field. It is entirely up to you if you want to create separate tabs for types of projects (Residential, Commercial etc) or rooms (Kitchens, Baths, Bedrooms etc) or even by client, totally up to you.
Step 2: Now drag and drop or upload as many images as you like. You can even drop all of your images into one page and then distribute them to your various tabs from there. Just drag them over the tab you want to move them to.
Step 3: This one is important so listen up. Every image requires a title, at least one tag (up to five are permitted) and a short description. Why is this so important? It’s so people can find you. These pages are very well optimized for Google and for the search on Modenus. Without this information you won’t be able to publish the page. Trust us, a bit of work to start but you’ll thank us later. To edit click the little blue tag sign and again when you’re done.
Fun feature: You can change the layout of your image field. For one, you can always drag images to another field, occupied or not, if you want to rearrange the page and you can select from the grids on the right sidebar and change your page layout to best suit your project. You can change layout for every page individually.
Want us to host your portfolio but don’t want to show them to the rest of the world? No problem, you can keep them hidden and share the link only with people you want to share with.
To do this, simply create a new tab and when you’re done, select “Share secretly”. You can use this for portfolio images or even to create a moodboard that you really only want to share with a client. Pretty cool, eh?
Want your own board now? No problem. Just click on SIGN IN in the top right corner of your screen and log in or register. When you see your name in the top right corner, hover over it for your options to create a porfolio or to manage account settings.
