I cannot find any type of tutorial or support or file type suggestions when trying to build out my website using Portfolio. Will Portfolio be going away?

I am a graphic designer (primarily print based) who has build out a website using Portfolio. I already have done one, but want to edit it using a different template. I've started down that path, but when I upload images, the sizing is all over the place--either in a grid pattern or individually. How can I crop images so that it appears as a thumbnail first, but when clicked on or hovered over, it appears full size? And, what's more ideal to use: a PNG, JPG, and do I have to resize all of my images (prior, in Photoshop) to be consistent or can they be sized in Portfolio? Suggestions/feedback is appreciated!

@cjdonley,

1. Turn on the Lightbox feature in your Portfolio site settings.  See this link for more details.

2. Yes.  For best results, cover  & PhotoGrid images should be the same size/aspect ratio and optimized for the web in Photoshop before you upload them to your site. This also reduces bandwidth to make your pages load faster.   Use Phothsop's File > Export > Export As panel.  See screenshot. Also scroll down & check the box for sRGB color mode before exporting to JPG.
