it fits and looks great on different devices

supports finger gestures, so it is very easy to navigate between
the images on touch devices.

Transparent. After you choose your skin, you have options to
change the colorsand background used in the theme.
We have also included a color picker to make color choice even
easier. Additionally, the theme comes with 34 different background

your own background pattern image or full width background

sections and display the images in the full size of the window.

Cufon Fontreplacement and

you can either use one of the fonts that the theme comes with or
upload your own custom font. For the Google Fonts

like just by adding the URL the API provides. You can check out the
font management section
