Hello loyal followers, fans and newcomers!

We wanted to give you an update on where we stand on things. Some people have probably wondered where we’ve been! We’ve actually been right here, working this entire time behind the scenes on some very secret projects we can’t really talk about! (yet.)

The site::

You may have noticed recently that we are continuously updating our website with more content at the moment. All of the 2013 design posts now have buttons to view and purchase the design as well as screenshots for all of our 2013 designs. This allows you to check out what the design may look like with different ProPhoto options. We also don’t like to call our designs “templates” any longer, as they are so much more than that. We like to call them “ProPhoto Suites”, because they include logos, photoshop files, and more than you can ever get from simply purchasing a WordPress template from another site.

The store::

Not long ago, we talked about opening a store with a few ProPhoto related products and of course our brand new brand templates to match our designs. We’re still planning on going ahead with the store, but we’re shooting for a later release ( 1st quarter 2014. ) We’ve spent the last few months trying out different store options like bigcartel, and shopify, at the same time building our products up for release but ultimately those services weren’t for us. We want something easy to use, simplified and integrated. That solution is coming soon and we’ll be launching a few products to start.

Designs::

You may have noticed some of the changes taking place as we’ve had to retire several of our older designs recently. (Red Baron, Passion, After Midnight, Mighty Dog, Metropolitan, Abstract and Olympus). Most of those designs were from our 2011 – 2012 seasons so some of them needed to be retired.

Going forward into 2014 we’ll be updating a few of our older designs to reflect newer design standards, as well as creating a new release schedule for future designs. We’ll be working hard creating the new site, the store and preparing new designs for 2014 for the rest of the year.  As always we’ll continue to answer all your questions and provide design and ProPhoto support to anyone who contacts us either through Facebook or the site.

Meanwhile we finally decided to join Instagram (we’ve added a button to the sidebar) so you can follow us! Check us out here!

Thanks for reading!

Paris is a clean, minimal design with a little splash of color, and some REALLY unique features. It’s the first ProPhoto design to feature a static menu bar (meaning, when you scroll down the page, the menu goes with you!) this is not a new feature in ProPhoto, and is just something we were able to add to our design, which so far is exclusive to this one. Paris also features a custom menu search bar in the menu as another unique addition to the design.

Paris comes complete with everything you see in the brand board below as photoshop files, plus a few more not seen as well! The design includes: logo, lightbox gallery nav buttons, custom contact form graphic with custom icons, social icons, and custom search icon, grid fall back image, background texture, sidebar headers, bio featured boxes, lazy loader gifs, and a set of 4 complimentary header slideshow templates. Check out the brand board below!

We try to make the design as flexible and as easy to customize as possible so, it’s compatible with all of ProPhoto’s features, including a sidebar, header slideshow, bio area, footer, and home page. You can view what the design would look like with different features below.  To navigate, simply click any thumbnail and click the image after it pops up to go back or forward. The descriptions below each image will explain which type of option it is.

    Your color palette? Am I able to change the pink to another color.ReplyCancel

    • Hi Amy, yep you’re totally able to change the red color to any color you want! Some of i uses ProPhoto and some of it uses the included photoshop files!ReplyCancel

  • Angela Gaspar9.17.13

    Is there a blog type option. I like this for the home page but like a traditional scroll down blogReplyCancel

    • Hi Angela,

      Yes you can totally change out the front grid page with a normal blog view, and add a home page using the tutorial included with the guide in the design.ReplyCancel

Our newest design for July is a vintage, black and white theme with a playful tone. We wanted to go a bit retro on this one along with the vintage themes we’ve been recently establishing, we felt like breathing in some new life with the style, so we brought some bold lines and fun typefaces into the mix. Check out Oxford, below!

We of course strive to make our designs as flexible as possible. Here you can see the difference between the options available with Oxford. With and Without Sidebar, Header Slideshow, Bio area, Regular Blog View, Home Page View, etc.

To navigate, simply click any thumbnail and click the image after it pops up to go back or forward. The descriptions below each image will explain which type of option it is.

    Is it possible to customize 2 image gallery homepage and replace smaller right image with a static table with welcome information (like used in Skyfall theme)? Is possible to change the script font in the heading images? Thanks guys!ReplyCancel

    • Hi Christina, yes it’s totally possible to change the text out for every area in the design, as well as the design areas using the included photoshop files. You could create a new header using photoshop just like the one in Skyfall and add it to the design, if you wanted to. That design was specifically designed to have that using a unique header slideshow we designed.

  • Which script fonts have you used for the Oxford and Paris templates? I’ve been looking for something just like that for a logo.ReplyCancel

We’re continuing our new trend of doing some antique black/white designs for early 2013 with our newest design, URBAN.

Urban, is a minimal, antique design perfect for any growing business. This design includes a lot of design elements (as seen in our graphic below). So you’ll need a basic knowledge of photoshop, including how to handle layers, colors and type. Our new Prophoto instructional guide included with the design will help with the design to make it as easy as possible. We also have our dedicated tutorial section you can see here.

Urban looks great with or without a sidebar, header slide show, home page, or footer. All of these options are available to turn on or off as you please. To see some screenshots with those features take a look below. To navigate, simply click any thumbnail and click the image after it pops up to go back or forward.

    I like this design, but I’m not sure how will look my longer logo on it.ReplyCancel

  • Tiffani Shoop Evans6.25.13

    Is there a way to activate the side column and not the blog on the home page?ReplyCancel

  • Briana Johnson7.7.13

    this has to be my most favorite design I have seen so far. I would really love this one! I understand that pro photo does not do tech support for importing blogger to pro photo, so do you have any recommendations for thorough tutorials or any paid services for such an import? I really want this to work!ReplyCancel

  • Tracy7.24.13

    Hi I love this design and was wondering if I can change it in ProPhoto to have the logo then navigation then header then the image buttons? Is this possible or is the navigation and the image buttons always next to each other?
    Cheers TracyReplyCancel

  • Matt7.24.13

    Hi Tracy, you can definitely change to that option. ProPhoto has a multitude of layout options for the header area (logo, menu, and header slideshow options) you can also choose to turn some of those options completely off if you want. If you purchase the design and need some help with that, just contact us and we’ll send you some instructions to get what you’re wanting.

  • Marcel Brown7.30.13

    Would it be possible to get matching LinkedIn and YouTube social media icons, pretty please? :)ReplyCancel

  • Colin Richards8.1.13

    This is probably a dumb question….Can the logo be placed on the left hand side beside the menu instead on on top?ReplyCancel

  • I love your design asthetic and am interested in changing my current pro photo template to one of yours. I would love to have the ability to get houzz icons on the site as well because I do portrait and interior photography – is this a possibility? Thx.ReplyCancel

  • Matt8.19.13

    Hi Stephanie,

    We can definitely design you some custom houzz icons to match the designs, but you should probably contact us about that if you’re interested in us designing some for you.

  • Nicole Moulton9.25.13

    HI, I want to run a sidebar and my most recent blog post on my front page, but not minimized, but not the full width either. I want to do what the dominant example above shows for Urban. I made it a static page, and the sidebar is there but I don’t know how to get my blog posts to show up there. Thanks for any help.ReplyCancel

  • Christina Johns11.11.13

    Hi there! I would like to use the Urban theme with “Blog Design with Header Slideshow activated” (image 3/4) – but is it possible to incorporate a blog sidebar into this layout?ReplyCancel

    • Hi Christina, yes it’s totally possible to have a sidebar with all our designs, you can set it right or left and have it show up on different page types, all are standard settings in ProPhoto.

  • Derek Halkett11.16.13

    Absolutely love the design! I made the switch from Zenfolio and love the difference. Still getting used to WordPress, but all in all it has been a great change. Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • Hi there! I was wondering, so the colors on the color palette can be used for the background and those are the colors that can be chosen? And is the width of the website can be adjusted to be narrower? Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Hi Yekaterina! The colors are just what we used in the design, you can change them to anything you want! We sent you an email a momemnt ago about your sizing question that you sent us, but the short is yes all the designs can be adjusted in width.

        Awesome! Thank you so much!ReplyCancel

  • La Lune Creative6.24.13

    Take a screenshot of it and replace the logo with your own as a mockup. :) Just keep in mind the design can fit any logo size.ReplyCancel
