Since Portfolio is a responsive website editor, there are a number of things to consider when it comes to "size."
It all starts with your Layout. While there are many layouts, the biggest distinction between them is the placement of the Navigation on your site. Sites that have a Vertical Nav (aka, a column-style Nav on the left or right side of your site) will have less viewable space for images than the sites that have a Horizontal Nav (aka, a Nav that lies along the top of your site).
Website Container vs Project Container vs Page Container
Next, after you've chosen the layout, it's important to determine if you want to restrict how wide a your site can get or not.
For example, if you set a max width of 1400px to your site, site content (Project Covers, Images, Text, and Vertical Nav, if applicable) will fill the browser window up to 1400px. After that, the browser adds spacing to the left and right of the site content.
Alternatively, you can remove any max width set on your Website Container. If you set the content % to 100, this will allow the page to fit virtually any browser size.
You can access the Website Container Menu from the Gallery Editor Remote:
You can ALSO set max widths for your Projects or your Custom pages. This would be useful if you want your Gallery pages to view at 1600px but you want your Projects and Pages to view at 1400px.
We recommend deciding your width from the Website Container rather than the Project Container. The Website Container overrules any max widths set within Project Containers or Page Containers that are greater than the Website Container. For example, if you set a Project/Page Container's max width to be 1400px, but your Website Container is set to 1200px, your projects will max out at 1200px.
Best practice: If you want the largest possible Project images, don't set a max width on either the Website Container or Project Container. Depending on the layout, this may result in very large Cover Images in your gallery. To change the size of the Cover Images, click Cover Images in the Gallery Editor Remote and then adjust the number of columns or increase/decrease the gutter and margins.
