WordPress offers an ideal platform for creating image-base websites for photographers and artists. The key to successful communication of visual information on WordPress is finding and using the theme or plug-in gallery that best suits your needs. Explore the optimum themes, plugins, CDNs and hosting providers for dynamic web galleries and customize the platform for your specific requirements. Learn to optimize photos for standard and retina displays, load images into galleries, create custom web displays of your visual media, and create the type of gallery you want with spacing, captions, and layout according to the look you are trying to achieve.
Prerequisite is a basic knowledge of the WordPress platform. Please bring a thumb/hard drive with your own images on it for use during demoing.
