After you’ve imported your content you can now edit the layout of your portfolio and tell the story of each artifact by giving it a title and description. From there, you can categorize artifacts so your viewers can see each facet of your accomplishments individually. You might also “stack” artifacts on top of one another by creating collections which allows you to keep an uncluttered layout while still being able to include all of your best work.

Editing Your Title and Description

1. Click the Edit button in the upper right hand corner of the portfolio below your name

2. The Title and Description fields will become changeable

  • Click the Title to change it
  • Click the box below to add a description of your portfolio
  • Click Save when done

Style & Settings

1. To the right of your portfolio, select the Style & Settings option to format the style of your portfolio. The layout option allows you to choose a layout to present your content. The theme option allows you to change the background from a light to dark theme or choose the resume theme (depending on your audience).

2. Even though you’ve chosen a layout provided in the Design section, Pathbrite gives you the ability to further customize your artifacts with its Drag and Drop feature:

  • Click on an artifact to ‘grab’ it
  • Hold and drag it the desired location in the portfolio page, the artifact and those around it will resize automatically to accomodate the new orientation
  • Release once you are satisfied with the new location
  • Use the slider located between portfolio items to expand and shrink the size of the thumbnail view

Portfolio Settings

This section includes your visibility settings and allows you to manage access.
