Photobook has a certain personalized feel to it, which makes it wonderful for personal bloggers, travelers, people who need some sort of professional portfolio, and of course, photographers. Whether you’re a hobbyist or a professional, the Photobook theme generates a simple, yet extraordinary view of your photos for the world to see. The sticky, yet hidden navigation is revealed when a user clicks on an icon. This clears up space for you to show more of your photos, and keeps the focus on what you’ve done with your camera. The built-in widgets are essential for designing a stunning portfolio, since you can show information about yourself, generate a small gallery, and showcase some of the recent posts from your blog. You’ll also notice that the theme has built-in social media buttons that lead to places like Facebook and Twitter. This way, you don’t have to install an extra plugin or pay for a premium theme.
One feature that makes the Photobook WordPress theme so elegant is the smooth scroll bar. Users can scroll down without any of the annoying jitters, and when a person clicks on the Load More button a whole batch of images is unveiled for them to continue browsing your site. The theme also provides a basic slider to include some of your most impressive work as an introduction to your company or personal website. A simple scroll over a portfolio item shows an animation, and a click through jumps to minimalist blog posts with plenty of whitespace to keep the eyes on your photography. If a basic portfolio is your thing, and you’d like to cut out the clutter, consider giving Photobook a try.
