I had several methods of using clippings in portfolios years ago. I had a book of tearsheets of my published photos and also some of my photos mounted on high quality boards with the clippings attached to the back. These went with me to interviews. I also copied clippings onto slides and mailed these out to prospects to try and get the interviews.
If the photos were part of a full layout on the page, I used the story and all--especially if it was well laid out and displayed the photos well. Single photos were just clips of that photo with the cutline. These all went into the clipping book.
If the photos were butchered by being run too small or were cropped badly (as so often happened at the newspapers I worked for), I made mounted prints with the clippings on the back.
There's probably lots of ways to assemble a portfolio with the use of a computer and scanning. My experiences were from the dark ages. Good luck, Tim.
