  • Show Title: If you want to show the title with portfolio turn this setting to "Yes".
  • Show Description: Same as the title, If you want to demonstrate the story with portfolio turn this setting to "Yes".

Step 4: Moving on to the next point. Settings of the new item. Click on an item; the settings will come in front of you from the accordion.

Here you will see the following configuration.

    1. Bottom of Image: Choose this setting if you want to show the contents in the lower part of the portfolio.
    2. Overlay: Choose this setting if you want to show the contents at the middle and over the portfolio only when the mouse hovers over it.
