If you’re looking for an all-around great WordPress theme to showcase your photos, portfolio items, or whatever then this theme might be the answer you’re looking for. The creators of this theme is a professional photographer and looks like he’s put a lot of work into this theme. I think if you ask any photographer what they want from their site they’d say I want to showcase my photography without a lot of distractions. And this theme does just that. Introducing the Photocrati Super Theme.
The Photocrati Super Theme is 15 different themes built into one and includes 60 different styles overall. Each of the 15 themes that are built-in have 4 different homepage options each. So you have a homepage with a slideshow, or have it display your images in a tiled fashion that popup, or have it be a normal blog style, or have a slideshow with selectable images underneath.
There are both dark and light versions and some in between with a bit more graphical backgrounds such as the Bocah edition. You can of course upload your own logo and choose if you want it centered or on the left or right. You can even choose your own custom background images for your site. The admin gives you many options to change things like link color or text colors.
One of the newest features is the ability to sell your own photos from your site. Within the galleries you create you can choose to add paypal buttons so that you can accept payments and then take care of the sale off the site. Meaning you can sell prints and the like straight from your site. I believe a lot of photographers would love this option as it gives you the ability to accept payments online.
Here’s what Photocrati says on their site:
WHAT’S IN PHOTOCRATI 4.0?
- Built-in gallery management! (no more having to install plugins to create galleries!)

You’ll be notified of purchases and sent an order summary. You’ll fulfill orders yourself at your preferred print lab.

- Copyright protection for Photocrati Galleries – no right clicking, dragging images to desktop, or viewing source URLs. (not 100% secure but it will stop a lot of people from saving your photos to their drives.)
