Photocrati Feature – Background Slideshows

With Photocrati 4.8 out we decided to take an opportunity to share some of the new features we’ve included in the theme.

While working on the left side head feature in the Photocrati 4.8 we wanted to go beyond just a static background image. So we decided to take our slideshow gallery and add a similar feature to your homepage.

So now whether you’re using a left side header or other layout style, you can take advantage of a background slideshow.

Check out the video:

The way that the sorting works for this is extremely basic, but down the road we might had more sorting options. At the moment the slideshow will be displayed in the order that the images are uploaded. No other sorting options exist at the moment.

Choose static, rotation or slideshow. Choose your slideshow intervals and effects and save. Refresh your homepage and check out your new background slideshow.

If you want to hide all the content on your homepage then be sure to pick the Page without Content page template. This can be found by editing the page used as your homepage and then picking the page template from within the options there.

This opens the doors for theme customization and design and we cannot wait to see what you come up with.

Thanks and enjoy,
Scott

This Photography Offer Ends In 5 Days

This starts at noon today!
photography-offer

Last year the photography industry was introduced to a new concept called the 5 Day Deal. Some people were turned off by the amount of promotion that came from it, but not everyone. In fact, the 5 Day Deal raised thousands of dollars for charity. So this year the stakes are higher and now the deal is back with a vengeance. The goal is to do far better than last year’s charity donation, with over $100,000.

There are many amazing contributors, including our very own Scott Wyden Kivowitz offering his presets and two of his ebooks. How it works is simple…

The deal lasts for 5 days long (that’s the obvious part), and for the 5 days you have the ability to purchases over $2,000 worth of products for under $100. When purchasing you have the choice to choose which of the charities you would like to donate to. Or you can have the 5 Day Deal team split it evenly between the charities.

There will be a live counter showing how much money was raised for charity. At the end of the 5 days an announcement will be sent to all purchasers with the total donation amounts. It’s pretty cool!

Some of the products included come from photographers like Zack Arias, Trey Ratcliff, Nicole S Young, Joel Grimes, David Duchemin and so many others.

5DayDeal-Photography-Contributors-No-Title

These amazing photographers have compiled together 39 different photography products; including training, tools, and much more, into an awesome deal only available for the 5 days.  Included in the bundle are:

  • Over 70 hours of training video
  • 14 Photography ebooks
  • 300+ Lightroom Presets
  • 500+ Textures

and so much more.

The deal starts today, October 15 at 12pm EST and ends October 20 at 12pm EST.

We really hope that you take a good look at the deal and either pick one up for yourself or gift it to someone because either way you’re donating to charities that could use the donations.

Photocrati Feature – Background Color Opacity

With Photocrati 4.8 out we decided to take an opportunity to share some of the new features we’ve included in the theme.

While we were creating the new presets for Photocrati 4.8, some of us used opacity custom CSS. We enjoyed the look so much that we decided to take the need away for custom CSS of that feature and build it right in.

So now background colors have opacity options!

Check out the video:

This opens the doors for theme customization and design and we cannot wait to see what you come up with.

Photocrati Feature – Fixed & Left Side Header

With Photocrati 4.8 out we decided to take an opportunity to share some of the new features we’ve included in the theme.

Many (and we mean many) theme users were asking for the ability to have their menu aligned to the left rather than at the top.

Many others were asking for a way to keep the top header fixed so it doesn’t move when visitors scroll through the website.

So in Photocrati 4.8 we added both of those features, all doable with simple clicks in our theme customizer.

Check out the video:

This opens the doors for theme customization and design and we cannot wait to see what you come up with.

Thanks and enjoy,
Scott

Photocrati Feature – Width, Maximum & Minimum

With Photocrati 4.8 out we decided to take an opportunity to share some of the new features we’ve included in the theme.

One of the biggest requests for the Photocrati theme was to make the content area wider than 960px. So in version 4.8 we decides to give that option to users. But we also wanted to take it to a new level.

So so users have the ability to set the normal width, maximum widget and minimum width. These widths are useful to achieve the exact look you want for your website. They also only impact the desktop version of your website. Once you go to a mobile device the content area automatically becomes 100%.

Speaking of percentage, we also made the options from pixel count only to pixel count or percentage. So you can now say to make your website 80% width, or 90% or whatever you want.

Check out the video:

Visit the customize theme panel to find the new feature.

Thanks and enjoy,
Scott
