As a photographer, images are just the start. How do you decide which are your best photographs? How do you selectively choose the best that represent your style, and then what’s the best way to display those in a portfolio to someone who may not be familiar with your work?
A PDF portfolio is a multi-page document that displays your work, but how to do that effectively? We’ll look at some paid for and free options for you to explore in this lesson. We’ll also talk about what size to display your images in order to keep the PDF file size reasonable. This is especially important if you’re emailing your PDF to someone who has limit on the attachment size they can receive.
Designing a PDF portfolio can be tricky, you need to let your work do the talking and place images that fit well together while remembering to include important information, like contact information, without cluttering up the page.
