Lia’s RedFrame-powered website takes advantage of several powerful features:
Minimalist Home PageLia wanted the beauty of her photography to be the centerpiece of her home page. No text, no distractions, just her images.
Lia uploaded nine of her favorite photos through the Redframe Admin Background Slideshow Editor. She opted to turn off the text overlays on the showcase so that it wouldn’t distract from her photography. By changing her home page’s Sidebar Settings to ‘Custom -> No Sidebar’ and leaving the content on her home page blank, she hid everything on the page except the her image showcase.
Advanced iPad, iPhone, and Android GalleriesLia Barrett takes advantage of Redframe’s stunning mobile-friendly image galleries optimized for iPad, iPhone, and Android devices.
By activating the Mobile Gallery setting in the Redframe Admin under ‘Appearance and Settings -> Edit Mobile Controls’, Lia presents her images in stunning full-screen on modern mobile devices. The gallery can be explored with the swipe of a finger. Tapping the Gallery Title on the bottom of the screen reveals slidable gallery thumbnails. Tapping the Info Icon at the top of the screen lets Lia’s customers comment on the image, share thumbnails on their social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, and request quotes for purchasing her photographs.
