There are many ways to express your personality through your portfolio.

Adding quotes and images that inspire you can help your audience understand more about who you are and what you care about.

In this extension, you’ll add an inspirational quote to your portfolio.

You can also add a matching image, if you like.

To do this, you will use Google Search to find images and quotes, add them to your portfolio, and cite your sources.

Before you start, think of people, places, and things that inspire you.

Using this information, you’ll search for a quote that inspires you or that relates to your portfolio.

Quotes won’t be appropriate for every type of portfolio, so consider your portfolio’s purpose first.

To begin, open a new tab, and sign in to your Google account.

Next, find a quote.

Use search terms based on what inspires you or that express your portfolio’s purpose.

Then, add your quote to your site.

Be sure to cite the source of your quote.

This ensures that your quote is properly credited.

In this example, copy it directly from the website.

Next, add a new text box, and paste your citation.

If it’s appropriate for your portfolio, add an image and caption it with your quote.

Find a new image, or use the one you added in the main lesson.

To do this, go to image search, search for the image, and make sure you have the right to use the image.

Next, download the image to your computer.

Then, go back to your homepage and upload the image.

Finally, add the quote as a caption.

Adding a quote and an inspirational image is an effective way to give your portfolio some personality.

Now, it’s your turn. Search the internet for an inspirational quote, cite the source of the quote, use Google image search to find and download an inspirational image, upload the image to your site, and caption your image with the quote.
