How to create slideshows

If you have a series of photos you would like to upload on your ePortoflios, there are a number of ways that you can create a gallery.

One of them is through the “Portfolio Slideshow” function. When you create a new post or page, if you scroll down the bottom of the editing page, you will see a box called “Portfolio Slideshow”. All you have to do is simply upload or select from your media library, and follow the instructions from there. The gallery will look similar to the one featuring the photos from the Mystery Skype session. This support page on WordPress provides further detail. Remember to keep in mind that UBC Blogs is more limited than normal WordPress.

Here are a few other photo gallery sites that will give you the embed code . When you have an embed code of any sort (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), you want to paste it in the text editor, which reads HTML.

  • Flickr
  • Slideshare (Can upload PowerPoints, PDFs, Word Documents- no image files/jpg)

You can also create photo collages on these sites, and you can download the final product to your computer:
