Village is a theme which has been built to make the life of photographers with websites easy. One of the most amazing options is to upload hundreds of different photos with a mere 4 clicks. Another very important fact about the theme is that it is fully responsive – never miss out on mobile visitors.
Presentation plays a large role in photography, so the people who made Village have made several different slideshows and gallery types for you to discover. A stunning new feature is the jQuery wall, which can be created with ease, with no coding knowledge.
