When building a website portfolio involves little more than slapping a bunch of pictures on a page, the author can’t expect to get decent results unless the pictures themselves are exceptionally good. Image order, size, organization, and text placement are important, as is the text itself.
Building a decent portfolio takes thought, effort, and the right tool for the job, and there are plenty of themes on the market that will give you a head start toward building a decent portfolio website.
There’s absolutely no need to settle for “decent” though. What you need to create something that’s truly awesome can (1) either involve a tremendous amount of hard work or (2) finding a theme that’s either dedicated to the job or doesn’t have any of the more common limitations or constraints that could prevent you from doing so.
The second approach is far easier, and the results are just as good.
