Adding a Portfolio Item – Canvas Theme

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.

How to Recover a Deleted Image

Oops….I Deleted a Picture – How do I Get it Back?

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.

NextGen Gallery Help Tutorial

NextGen Gallery Help Tutorial

This tutorial video is for those using the nextgen gallery plugin. It shows you how to upload pictures to a specific gallery, insert a title and description for each picture in the gallery, and how to move or copy images from one gallery to another.

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.

Download the tutorial video here.

Thanks to David (oops) for the honesty.
