Individual vs Attached Media

You can use Portfolio Post types in two ways.

Individual
Each Portfolio Post can act as an individual gallery slide e.g. an image. See below for more information.

Pros
You can control each slide specifically with timeout options for Stage, embed Vimeo/YouTube videos etc.
Cons
Slow method if you require to add a vast amount of images.

Attached
Each Portfolio Post can act as a host to many images/media by attaching the media to that Portfolio Post Category. See Attached Media for more information.

Pros
A very fast method of adding a vast amount of images/media to a Gallery.
Cons
Limited control of individual slides e.g. Only Title and Description can be modified via WordPress → Media.
