I think I'm using the Thomas theme,  Is it possible to adjust the size of individual images within a collection/gallery.  There is no unifomity.   Some images are splashed from border to border.

You can adjust the size / aspect ratio within Lightroom however you can't do this after the fact from within your Portfolio theme (it doesn't matter which theme). With regards to uniformity, choose a longest edge for your vertical and horizontal images so that when they are imported they will be consistent. When you choose to add photos from your Portfolio you are only accessing your collections - there are no editing capabilities in this context. You can either go back into Lightroom Classic ...

You can either go back into Lightroom Classic and make your adjustments in your collections or since you are working in a browser already on your portfolio - open another tab and go to lightroom.adobe.com and log in with your Adobe ID - there you can also make edits. Not all editing features are in the browser but you can do a quick crop or other adjustment. Edits will be updated in your Lightroom Classic catalog automatically.

 

Keep in mind that Portfolio will not update automatically so you will need to delete the image and re-add it.

So, I discovered how to RESIZE (not crop) my images in exporting from LrC.  I'm clicking RESIZE TO FIT  but so far it's a lot of playing around with #s until I get to the size I want.

Realize now that I don't want to change aspect ratio just resize.

 Is this the easiest way?

Is there an easier way to get to the right size for portrait & landscape images?

Is there an easier way to get to the right size for portrait & landscape images?  What is the 'right' size? What is the size you want? You can maintain aspect ratio using the crop tool. If you are prepping images for your Adobe Portfolio you can work within collections and you won't need to export images. Take a look at this Adobe FAQ on sizing images for Pf: https://help.myportfolio.com/hc/en-us/articles/360038360914-Formatting-Images

There is a common format for such themes, whereby photos are differently scaled and sometimes reordered in order to "pack" neatly into one constant-width column. Hence images are shown larger or smaller depending on how they will fit together with other images, sharing the same row or else singly on a row, with the height of that row governed by those specific image(s) shape proportion(s). This variation of scaling is especially marked with a mix of portrait  vs landscape photos.

 

If you do want all your images to show at a pre-known 'scale', then you must standardise rotation (orientation) and shape (aspect ratio).

 

Or use some different gallery format which does not change images' sizing for reasons of tiling them together.

 

Other gallery schemes include a rigid grid of cropped thumbnails (whereby clicking the thumbnail shows the entire chosen image larger, fitted within a space which itself can accommodate horizontal or vertical images - much like Lightroom's Loupe view + Filmstrip. Or else scrolling the images as one horizontal row or one vertical column, using the identical width / height limitations rule for each one.

 

That said, how are (say) a portrait image, vs a square image, vs a long letterbox panorama image, to be best sized in relation to each other? Perhaps their widths are made the same, or their heights, or should the larger dimension be made constant, or the diagonal, or does that 'depend' (with some exceptions)? It's very different results depending which rule is used. The computer can implement that rule but cannot exert any judgement over its appropriateness.
