Displaying your images in your portfolio


Here is how to get started with your own portfolio at Nikonians, available to all Platinum and Gold members. Your portfolio is showcased under your unique /portfolio address, on our homepage and in the portfolio overview.


1. If you are not a community member yet, or on Silver or Basic, signup for Platinum or Gold

2. Enable your portfolio

Make sure your portfolio is enabled. Turn it on right from your portfolio page, nikonians.org/portfolio/YourUserName, or under "My Profile - Preferences" tab.

3. Upload or select existing gallery images

Once your portfolio is enabled you can add images to it, either

A) by uploading images to the galleries and set the flag "Include images in your portfolio?" to "yes" or

B) by clicking the link or button "Include to portfolio" which is located under each of your images in the galleries.

Your gallery accepts images larger than 1800 pixels long side, making it possible for you to include large, beautiful images in your portfolio. Image file size is limited to 10 MByte per image.

Debra: The basics are: - Click on My Profile (top right under your user name) - Under the Preferences Tab, Enable your portfolio, give it a title, & a short description. - Then, upload images to your gallery - Go to your Gallery. - You will see under each photo a link titled "Include to Portfolio" - Click that link for each of the images you want in your portfolio. - The images are automatically added to the portfolio.

Hi to anyone who can help me to include photos to portfolio, I am new to using the portfolio feature of Nikonians, I upgraded to Gold to use this. I followed Dave Summer's advice in a post here: https://www.nikonians.org/forums/?az=set_threaded_mode&forum=190&topic_id=113275&prev_page=show_topic&gid=113275#113321 I went to my gallery and chose a photo, and clicked one of my photos, then "include to portfolio" but it does not show up(no photos in my portfolio). I checked again in the gallery and that photo now only has the choice "Exclude from portfolio" so I know that I included it to show in the portfolio. I know it should show up in portfolio. THe photo I included to portfolio is in my gallery and is the one of the Utah landscape "Wide Open Spaces". Can you tell me the trick to get photos into a portfolio on Nikonians, or tell me who to email? I also went to My profile, preferences, my portfolio, (and Portfolio is enabled under my preferences under My profile), and it shows the choice "Add images to my Portfolio" and I click it over and over, but absolutely nothing happens. I don't get it. I cannot get photos to my portfolio and I have tried several times. I've been a silver member since about 2006 and now gold just recently, for the portfolio and other upgrades. Please help, Thanks, Debra Gillilan, Nikonian username dgillilan

@Seragone: Uploading images to Nikonians, in forums or galleries with or without portfolio, do not change any Copyrights. They always stay with the owner.

Will my photos be copyright protected?

@pquinslo - pls try the "pin" icon top right corner of any of your images in your portfolio (located beside the trashcan) to change the featured image. We will improve the usability further since quite a few members do not see that icon.

This is an excellent idea! I would like to change the lead image in my portfolio without completely removing it. I would appreciate being given the ability to change it on demand. Thanks
