I've recently gone freelance, and need to build an online portfolio of my work. I've seen many nice portfolios where the designers include images of their designs. My question is: how do I create an "image" of my designs, instead of providing a link to the actual site? My concern is, that over time, those who've hired me may make changes to their sites that are outside of my original design intent, and I want my portfolio to reflect *my* work in its original state. How does one save an html page as an image?
My plan is to simply create a directory on my own server for each website that houses the original design. That way, prospective clients are looking at the pristine, unadultered site that I created, not the crapstorm that the client creates. The portfolio just points to my samples.
If you set up a whole new page on your own site unless you change all the text then your client, or yourself may get penalized for duplicae content.
With all due respect, how to you decline to provide a CMS to a client who makes that part of the specs when they call you for a quote? Are you busy enough that you can either turn folks away who request that or simply demand a maintenance agreement?
If either, I am jealous. But I may need to work myself in that direction. Because you are correct, CMS systems do nothing more than open up a pandora's box of problems.
