Sometimes, a simple slideshow or a photo gallery will work fine, but if you do some more complex work like building websites or creating books or products, you want to show more detailed information about each of your portfolio elements.

I searched the Internet for a free and easy to use WordPress plugin that can provide this functionality for your site. It's a plugin named "waving portfolio" and it is completely free.
