iii. No Gutter: A plain cluster of images without any spacing. A not so traditional way to display a portfolio, nonetheless, an attractive one. As there is no spacing between the images it gives a collage like look and thus makes it a creative way to display the products.
iv. Full Width: A collage that covers the screen, end to end. The thumbnails are little bigger than other portfolio styles thus making it easy for the customers to make a decision of clicking or not clicking to view the full picture.
Again a collage of images but in different heights and widths. You can decide which product picture you want to make an impact with and display a bigger picture of it and keep normal height and width for others. Click to get the original image.
