The Portfolio page template allows you to create a collection of selected albums composed with the post format gallery or the page template "Album".
After the page save you will find the Collection options under the "Options" meta box.
You can present your albums in two styles:
- a “grid” like style, with a nice slideshow (limited to the first 5 images of the album) displayed when the user move the mouse over the block
- a small “thumbnails stripe” mode that creates a stacked series of thumbnails with the album title on top
