Portfolio types

Everyone wants the work they show online to be uniquely represented. Using Kalium’s portfolio types and options can lead to fantastic unique portfolios with a few steps.

There are three main types you can set from the Theme Options Visible TitlesTitles Inside and Titles inside and Masonry. Each of these types has their own options which can extend to really high number of portfolio types. Changing the portfolio layout here won’t affect the one you add via Visual Composer, also each portfolio page has the same settings in inside the Parameters and Options.
