Make it look just right

If Photo Blog‘s default design isn’t an ideal fit, you can change it up with the four included Style Packs. Crafted by our talented designers, Style Packs completely change the look of your website with the click of a button, giving you a pro design without the hassle of picking individual colors and fonts.

Style Packs: Default, Modern, Elegant, Retro Photo, Vintage Paper (top left to bottom right)

With Photo Blog, you’re never stuck with the default layout you see on the demo site. Use the all-new Layouts feature to switch between Default, Grid, and Masonry layout styles. Each layout behaves in its own unique way, and you can mix and match Layouts with Style Packs for 15 different combinations!

Featured Images

Photo Blog takes special care of the Featured Images you add to posts to make your story even more compelling. They appear in the grid on the homepage, and they also appear full-width, as a background to the header of single posts. We recommend using images at least 1920px wide by 1080px tall to get a clear, crisp photo.

It’s our business to help you succeed online!

We know starting from scratch can be scary, so we included clear, step-by-step instructions with videos to help you build an attractive website. We even put together a simple blogging guide and a list of resources to help you get started!

And if you ever get stuck, our support is just a click away, offering live chat, support pages, guided courses, and real-time concierge support.
