The video below is how to add a Portfolio Item to a Portfolio Gallery when using the Canvas Theme.
Portfolio Items are a great way to show off a piece of artwork, but also for that piece to have it’s own page where you can put information about the item, a contact form, or even a payment button.
The video starts off with a quick tutorial in Photoshop on how to keep your image in proportion, yet make the image square to keep all your images uniform on your website. Keep in mind that you don’t necessarily have to keep the images square in all cases, but if you keep them relatively close in proportion and size, they will generally line up better in most themes.
There are many different ways you can display images on your website. One of the ways we like to display images is by using a Slideshow or Rotation of Images in the sidebar to draw attention to the images.

It happens…..sometimes you delete a picture from a page or post that you didn’t mean to delete.
Once you upload a picture to a particular post or page within your wordpress web site, that picture is placed in a “gallery” for that post (or page). Therefore, is you accidentally delete an image from a post or page, it is not actually deleted. It is still in the “gallery” for that post, but it is not showing in the post.
All we need to do is open the “gallery” for that post and make the image show again.
The tutorial video below will show you how to get the picture back into your page or post without having to upload it again.

A client of mine in Australia, I won’t mention any names – (cough…cough…david..cough…cough…valleys guitars) – prompted me to make this video after he called my original tutorial video – $#%^t. He asked me to go slower and explain (thoroughly) what each step was and to make it big enough to see what is going on.
So, in order to make the video larger for easy viewing, I did not use youtube, instead I uploaded the video to my web server in wmv format. I also tried to go very slow and explain what each step was in this process.
My client (still to remain nameless) gave his approval, and told me I could remove the $#%^t tag.
