Best option for an online storyboard portfolio.
August 4, 2016 4:01 PM   Subscribe

I need to quickly (like tomorrow) put together an online storyboard portfolio. The options are overwhelming me at the moment and the sites that I'd like to emulate all just say ".com", so I'm not sure what I should be looking for. Imagine that I'm web "aware" but not especially conversant.

This site is set up in a way that would serve me quite well but I don't have time to investigate hosting companies or figure out how it was put together. I want to have a main page with a half dozen links that go directly to scrollable galleries of large, easily legible, B&W illustrations. I expect each set to be about 20 images. That's about all I need but I don't want visitors to have to click through smaller placeholder images or page/button advance through the galleries.

I've used Blogger, Flickr and Tumblr for personal stuff but don't think they're suited to this type of presentation.

Are there any free options I'm overlooking or would something like Squarespace be worth the expense?

Best answer: There's any number of non-free tools out there that will allow you to get this up quickly and nicely.

Carbonmade seems to have good examples, such as this.

Wix is another popular, free option. It has some really nice portfolio templates. This is free but can be upgraded to a paid option.

I'm not sure if it's the best for what you want to do, but Adobe's Spark Page is very slick and easy, plus it's free. Worth looking into anyway.

I haven't personally used daportfolio, but I've seen it used for storyboard portfolios.

Response by poster: Thanks everyone. Carbonmade seems to do exactly what I was looking for. You folks saved me a ton of searching and fretting, while still allowing me to feel like I adequately explored the options.
