Your portfolio image uploaded via "Set Featured image", you can upload .png or .jpg portfolio image format. Please consider to upload image larger than 800px (in width) and or 600px (in height) since Moderna theme uses "resize image on the fly" script that will resize original size of uploaded portfolio image to 800px- 600px (width-size) to serve portfolio thumbnail and Show the original on 'zoom'

Moderna theme built in several useful shortcodes to build content wrapper and elements.
We use 'Bootstrap Shortcodes' for easier use of the Bootstrap elements in your content.
"Row", and "Columns" are frequently used at the first step before put other element shortcode. If you've imported our .XML sample data you can check on any pages to see how the theme generate content on the front end.
Basically the content area already wrapped by 'container' , 'row' and 'column' class :
- Fullwidth page = already wrapped with col-lg-12
- Regular page with sidebar = already wrapper with col-lg-8
All element shortcodes are easy to understand and user friendly, you don't need to remember shortcode line, just click the shortcode button then the shortcode window will be displayed in modal dialog. Just click 'insert' to send it to page editor.
As we said at beginning, .xml sample data are important! you can see how all shortcode written in created pages
