Some of my users are artists but find Instagram massively distracting. Is there a feature that would allow them to create a little portfolio in their profile?
Checkout Topic List Previews Theme Component
There is a “Portfolio” feature: a button on the User Card can lead you to a tiled gallery of all of the user’s pictures.
This isn’t really what I meant. It’s close though. Basically this, except it’s images unrelated to a user’s posts
The advantage of using Topics and posts from a functional perspective is it allows the community to comment on a picture individually.
From a both a functional & technical perspective it leverages the existing infrastructure to upload a picture, maintain it and display the content in a layout.
You could also use this: Tiles Image Gallery
And get users to create one Featured Topic with all of their images which will be linked on their User Card.
