Let’s have a look at one of the Homepage styles. It is specifically designed to showcase photos in a modern and cool way. Navigation looks great too but in a non-invasive way.
The other Homepage styles besides full screen Slideshow are Flip Gallery, Static Image and Video. Flip Gallery is really nice but video is Stunning! The demo page shows a youtube video in full screen size and it totally blew me away. Check it out yourself.
When pages are loaded they slide up from the bottom of the page in a pretty awesome way. Here the blog page is shown. While pages are loaded the slideshow keeps running in the background. It is possible to minimize the pages allowing visitors to quickly turn focus back to a photo. Further the slideshow controls are always available at the bottom of the page.
There are several possibilities for showcasing photos and videos in this photo wordpress theme. The one illustrated here is Attached Images. Check out the others on the demo page.
