Carla - Minimalist Photography and Portfolio Theme

Carla lets you fully express yourself visually. With a variety of layout styles to choose from, you can curate and showcase your work in the best possible way – whether it is pictures taken by amateurs or professional photographers. You can also edit almost every little detail of your Photos theme and make it feel like it was made specifically for you.

Showcase your photos in two different ways

Choose between two different card layouts: Scattered and Masonry. If you prefer a clean, uniform layout, then go with the Masonry grid with options for controlling the number of columns to suit your needs. If you want something a little more chaotic and creative, then choose the Scattered layout.

Three different posts in three different layouts

Having a single layout for every post just ties you down, and it limits your ability to engage your readers with the content that’s most interesting to them. If you want to write a simple and focused post, then use a left-aligned layout. If you want to create an elaborate introduction to your post that shows off your best photos and helps screen your readers, then go with a centered, big spaces layout.

Choose from eight stunning colour schemes

One of the great things about the Carla theme is that you are in control of the look and feel of your site. Choose from a range of pre-made color schemes that automatically switch to a dark scheme when the sun sets :). You can also customize the font size, typography, and much more.

Subtle CSS animations

Animated features spice up an otherwise boring website. We’ve added a number of subtle animations that improve the visual aspect of Carla theme. Moreover, you can control the duration or change the type of animation, and even turn them off completely. This is all done easily and without much effort.

Page prefetching

If you want to keep your visitors around, it’s important to have fast site loading times. With page prefetching, links that are in view in the browser and the user is likely to click on, will be preloaded when they’re idle. This process makes load time almost instantaneous.
