How to add your own photos and videos

Although blogs are a great way to add all sorts of content to your web site - including photos and videos - there are circumstances when you need to present a group of photos or videos together in a portfolio. If that’s the case, you don’t necessarily need some fancy or complicated content management system. Instead, we can set up pages on your site that act as containers for content that’s stored on external services that you can update whenever you want.

Here’s an example:
  • create a free Flickr account
  • upload a series of photos there together with tags and captions
  • sit back as they appear automatically on your website, styled to look as if you’d uploaded them directly
  • add or remove photos whenever you like
  • also works with Picasa, 500px, Instagram and others

Here’s another example:
  • create a free YouTube account
  • upload some videos of your band playing together with a description of each one
  • after YouTube has done its stuff, they’ll appear on your website, styled to match the rest of your content
  • add new videos and get rid of old ones whenever you like
  • also works with Vimeo
