    Dang it, now I'm confused lol. I know a few photographers who have a category for Places but would landscapes really constitute to be under that category? There's others who put landscapes under Nature and Wanderlust. There's so many options...I have no idea what to do.

    Unfortunately, Adobe Portfolio doesn't have drop down menu support yet, they are working on that however but who knows when that will be an actual feature.

    That is the only downside for Adobe Portfolio, there is limited functionality so you really gotta keep it simple.

    I've been looking at other photographers site and seeing what they do and maybe that will give me some ideas for categorizing my work.

    Designer's comment reminds me that in your Landscape section I had noticed that you had images that could be grouped by titles other than Landscape. You have the misty mountains, the bright and saturated scenes, and B&W, to name a few - the hard part being able to come up with a category name that fits more of the emotional feel of the images.

    I think you have a great contrast going with the misty mountain scenes and the hard urban scape images. But I think that potential is buried within all the other images.

    I understand what you're saying. I just don't want to have several pages that only have 3 images in. Just feels too much to me. I also don't have much room to add that many catagories.

    5-6 tops.

    I want to keep it simple, but I wanna do it right too.

    It's not easy haha.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit

    This has always been an immense challenge for me. What I feel is good one week looks terrible to me the next; I'm constantly tweaking and changing my website. For me its a little more complicated because I also shoot occasional weddings, portraits, and sports on top of my normal landscape work which makes it really difficult to group everything cleanly and efficiently.

    Without making the first category too thin, you can remove some of them to their own category. As you accumulate more, just start taking some of them off. Eventually all you have left is the absolute best.
