Carousel is a theme aimed directly at photographers. It’s gallery page design was unashamedly inspired by Bostons Big Picture and Pictory Mag.
The idea behind this design was to give you an opportunity to showcase large versions of your photos without the fussy front end functionality. Just scroll and then keep scrolling, it has worked for before so why not make a theme which utilizes it correctly?
Here are some cool features that Carousel comes with:
- Widgetized Home Page
Like the other Obox themes, Photolist and Through the Lens, we have widgetized the home page to give you the best opportunity to showcase as many galleries as necessary. Also list your latest blog posts, tweets and your bio.
- Info boxes
A section for those of you who plan on selling your services, you can list them on the home page just as you would in a business type theme.
- New Archive Design
We have given our archive page template a completely new look for this theme including some nifty jQuery Masonry effects.
- Keyboard Gallery Navigation
When you are viewing a gallery simply use the up and down arrows on your keyboard to scroll through the content, it’s a silky touch.
- Gallery Commenting
A brand new feature to Obox Themes is the ability to leave comments in galleries created using our OCMX gallery plugin.
- Recent Galleries
A neat widget which sits at the bottom of your gallery listings allowing for easy navigation around the site.
- Blog section
As with any site we create, we always include a blog template so that you can post the latest news about your awesome work.
- 8 Color Options
Four Dark options with a textured background and four light options with subtle drop shadow details.
Also included in the theme options is our image filter feature as well as an option to choose between a Serif and Sans Serif font style.
This is definitely our best Photography theme to date, despite its complex back-end the front end is easy to navigate and visitors can consume the content in the simplest of ways.
