photo presentation

photo presentation was created by samantha32
when my client says he wants "some photos and some text" on a page, what are my options as to how to present them?

I can use a photo gallery, I can use a photo slideshow. Is there a more plain jane way of doing it?

I suspect if this were drupal I would use a view?

Hi Sam,

By using WordPress, there are unlimited ways to display content depending on the theme and/or plugin you choose.
I would like to hear more about how your client wants to display the pictures and text.

In the meanwhile, some suggestions:

Hey Valentin,

Those plugins look good. I recently learned about the Gallery post format? What are the pros and cons of each. Thanks.

Hi Sam,
Both are great choices, and the pros and cons depends on what result are you looking for. So far, which of those match better your needs?

Kind regards,
