Fullscreen Photography Portfolio WordPress Theme

Photolio is a powerhouse photography WordPress theme for professional modern photographers & creatives. Powered by ‘Clever Code’ that knows what jQuery scripts to load, when needed!

Creating a stunning, fluid gallery has never been easier. With PHOTOlio powering your new website you simply upload your images as per normal using the Media Uploader in WordPress Admin, and the Theme takes care of the rest, converting the images to the Gallery Type of your choice.
You get six different templates ready to show off your best creative work and you can create
virtually unlimited number of photography galleries using the different templates.
No extra steps, no finicky code to adjust, just upload your photos or images, select a template and click
publish. Huzzah!
PHOTOlio is also powered by what we call ‘Clever Code’ which means that the Theme knows
what jQuery scripts should be used on each page. This reduces unnecessary scripts loading
causing your website to slow down overall. No more wasted time loading unused scripts, your
website is ready to fly. Google will love your PageSpeed too!

Background Settings

Made by creatives, for creatives PHOTOlio photography theme has a wide range of usable settings to showcase
your work including:
– Fullscreen background slideshow (the same for all pages)
– Fullscreen background video for each page / post / project (support a self-hosted *. mp4 and *. flv or external youtube video)
– Fullscreen single image for each page / post / project
– A pattern for each page / post / project
– Background music for each page / post / project

Styling Options

With two base styles, Transparent Light Dark or Transparent Dark, you can easily switch the
entire look and feel of your website with a single click. Accents Colours gives you further
creative control with complete colour selections (yellow used in the demo).


Making use of best practise design and development, PHOTOlio utilises Semantic HTML
(semantic markup) and CSS code so that Search Engines can index your content with ease.
Combined with our clever code that only loads jQuery scripts as they are needed, your site is
not only optimised for Search Engines, but for speed too. This can be the difference between a
sticky website, and losing a customer due to poor Page Speed.
