No luck in the general section, so I'll try here.

I've been asked numerous times to present my portfolio and TBH I'm getting tired of begging people to give me my book back.

So I've been thinking of creating a digital portfolio and burning a ton to CD.

I'm looking for something simple to use and it should provide click through navigation.

Any ideas?

Will it be viewable offline?

You could use basic html or a slideshow program.

I've tried basic HTML, but I'd like something a little fancier than what my knowledge allows

will the slideshow be viewed from your laptop (or one laptop) all the time?

if so, programmes like lightroom do slideshows.

failing that, paste them into Microsoft powerpoint, save it as PPS (powerpoint show) and when someone opens it, it will automatically start playing (although maybe they would need to have powerpoint to view it?)

did a search on the internet and found this:

Have no opinion on it since I have never used it. Have a look though

Thanks Herc.

I'd like to burn it on a cd and make it autoplay as soon as the cd is inserted.

I'd like an interface as well so powerpoint...well..meh

go to

www.pcadvisor.co.uk

I have found that forum very helpful in the past. They might be of more use?

A lot of guys are going wonderful portfolios (whole web sites actually) using the tools in Lightroom.
Go to the Lightroom group on Flickr and look through some of the discussion threads for links.
Rather than putting your portfolio on the web just burn it to CD.

No worries. It was a small effort but big reward! Hope you enjoy it (and post some pics)...which reminds me, I must start using mine again!

For the photo albums on my school's web site I use Banana Album with JAlbum (http://www.bananalbum.com/), both free. It creates a flash-based photo album, and you'd need some very basic HTML skills to set it up, but it can then be web-based or stand-alone on a CD/DVD.
