Hi Nicke,

You certainly can categorize your pics, this is how it's done:
1. Create the sub-pages you need. When you create the page untick the "include in menu" box so that these pages won't be automatically added into your main navigation menu.
2. Now that you have your content, you need to link it all up. You can create the links on the pictures of your portraits:
- drag an image widget onto the page and upload your pic
- click on properties on the right-hand sidebar
- click on 'Choose a Link'
- a Link Editor dialogue box will open, choose the first option and click on '...'
- choose the particular sub-page you would like that picture to link to

You can also add images to a text widget and use the link editor in the text toolbar to get the same result.

It’s definitely possible to do what you have in mind, and very easy as well. What you’re asking is a two-part question. The first part is about adding images to your page, with captions underneath. The second part is about turning those images into clickable links to other pages in your site.

Adding images with captions

1) Drag and drop a text widget (not an image widget) onto your page. You will be adding your pictures, as well as their respective categories, to this one widget.
2) Click on the Edit icon in the upper left-hand corner of the widget, and a text editing toolbar becomes visible. Click on the Insert Image icon, about halfway into the toolbar. (It has a thin white square border and a green plus sign.)
3) In the Choose Image Editor, select an image you have already uploaded from your computer. (or upload a new image by clicking on the “upload” button, bottom left-hand corner).
4) Your image has now been added to the page. Resize your image to the proportions you want by dragging on one of the handles.
5) Repeat this process to add the rest of your images. You are able to add the category captions underneath simply by typing your text underneath the images (this may take a few attempts to get the captions exactly where you want them to be...)

Turning Images into Clickable Links

1) Upload all the photos you wish to display on your site. Use “Manage Files”, which you’ll find as one of the Site Explorer (extreme right-hand sidebar) options.
2) Add a new blank page to your site for each one of the categories of photos you need.
3) Go into each page, and add the image by using either a text or an image widget.
4) Go back to your muliple smaller-size image page (with the category captions underneath each image).
5) Click on the Edit icon in the top left-hand corner of the text widget.
6) Click on the first image to select it. Look for the Insert Link icon in the text editing toolbar (it looks like a horizontal figure 8).
7) The Link Editor dialog box appears. Make sure the first radio button is chosen, then click on the “....” (dot dot dot) button to browse for the other pages in your site you wish to link to from the smaller size image.
8) Repeat this process to link all your smaller size images to their full-size version page.

All of the pages you’ve added will now appear in your site’s main nmenu. If you don’t want them in your menu, you can simply go to Edit Menu (again found as one of the Site Explorer options), and drag all the pages with the full-sized images “out the menu.” The smaller-sized images will still link to the full-sized image page.

Keep in mind that you may need to have two versions of your image uploaded to our file manager to get the best effect: a smaller sized version and a full-sized version. You can manipulate the size of your photos by using your own image editing software, or by using Picnik(a free image editing application) we’ve made available on our website. But start by just uploading one version, and see if it still looks good by simply resizing each image on its respective page.
