Themes can extend WordPress into much more than just a blogging platform, and it’s common for theme developers to create themes with a focus on specific niches. For example, a few weeks ago we posted a collection of business WordPress themes that were aimed at giving business owners an easy way to get a great looking site online. So for this post, the focus is on portfolios and galleries. We’ve rounded up 10 themes that are ideal for designers and photographers who don’t have web design skills to build their own portfolio site. The themes we selected for this post are well designed and do an excellent job of presenting the content in a professional manner.
