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 Galleries Lia Barrett takes advantage of Redframe’s stunning mobile-friendly image galleries optimized for iPad, iPhone, and Android devices.

    Featured Client – Alex Gupton

    Based out of Kona, Hawaii, Alex Gupton began his career in artwork twenty years ago while studying business and art in University. A profitable pasttime painting murals soon became his full time profession. Although his background was Graphic Design, and his fine art centers in the tiny detail of pen and ink creations, he soon began to paint large-scale murals. With an amazing flare for Trompe L’oeil (to trick the eye), he soon was traveling the United States painting walls and ceilings for both private and corporate clients. Alex’s distinct artistic style lies in the interlocking details that comprise his works. You must look very closely at the detail in his artwork to fully appreciate and understand it, as lying within and forming the image as a whole is actually a collection of smaller drawings. Scenes ranging from tropical beaches and lush landscapes to wildly stylized creatures all work together to form an image, which may take as long as three months to complete. Here are some of the ways that AlexGupton.com takes full advantage of Redframe’s powerful features to build a site perfectly suited to Alex’s art. Customized Art Galleries Alex’s art is as diverse as it is distinct. His works include pen and ink illustrations, bronze sculptures, mosiac tile art on buildings, swimming pools, and even surfboards. Redframe makes it easy for Alex to create different settings for each of his art galleries. Using the Custom Gallery Layout Settings in the Redframe Admin, Alex can showcase his art exactly how he wants. Selling Art With Redframe Using the Shopping Cart settings in the Redframe Admin, Alex has set up a PayPal-based shopping cart for select galleries on his website. Customers can order prints of Alex’s art directly through his website— and all the money goes directly to Alex*....
