How to create a Portfolio Gallery using HTML and CSS ?

To create a portfolio gallery we will need only HTML and CSS. We can use JavaScript also but in this article, limits are set so we will use HTML and CSS only. Divide the whole article into two different sections in the 1st section, we will create the structure for the portfolio gallery and in the second section, we will make sure the gallery looks attractive. The portfolio gallery is useful when your website contains different types of content or so many contents. With the help of a portfolio gallery, you can easily display all the contents in your front page to the user.

Creating Structure: In this section, we will create the basic website structure of the portfolio. Here, we will attach the title attribute so the user can know what will be the content type on each gird of the portfolio.



  • HTML code: In this section, we will design the basic structure of Portfolio Gallery.
