New Masonry Photo Galleries

We have added New Photo Gallery layouts.  Now you can choose from Grid layouts, or you can select a Masonry Gallery that displays your images in a Vertical or Horizontal Masonry style (like Pinterest).

And the new Masonry Gallery is Responsive, so the images will stack for smaller mobile devices.  How cool is that!

Select the Gallery Layout of your choice...

​Look at the result and modify it to your liking...

New Background Editor Options

Have a look at the updated Background Editor.  You will love trying different background images or patterns to make your site perfect!

Changing Hero Images

A lot of our themes have main "Header" images you can change.  And we have thousands of stock photos you can use or you can upload your own image.   

With some of our new themes, we have what we call a Hero image that stretches across the site.  You can pick a theme like that and change the image to be whatever you like.

Here is a quick example of us using some of our free stock photos (we have over 100,000!) to replace the Hero image...





To change the image on your site, just hover over the image and you will see an Edit Image box appear.  

Note:  You can have a different image on every page of your website!

New Text Shadows

In the Font Editor, we have added a new feature for adding Text Shadows to your title fonts, subtitle fonts, navigation fonts, and more.

Here is a demo of what you can do...

 1) Here is the title with no drop shadow added.


2) Now there is a soft grey blurred drop shadow.


3) And here is a sharper green shadow in behind the text.


Have fun with your new Text Shadows!  

You can access the Fonts Editor under "Edit Theme" in the main toolbar.

New Image Gallery Features

There are now two awesome new "masonry grid" format thumbnail styles, which automatically tile each image like in the example above. You can select these in your Image Gallery Settings.


This looks especially fantastic using the new "Load images as user scrolls" option, also on the Settings page. As you scroll down a page, the Image Gallery will only load images as they can be seen. Not only does this increase page load speed, but it looks really cool!

Two New Slideshow Components

You are going to love the new responsive Image Slideshow components we have just released!


Slice and dice with the new 3D Slideshow.  You can choose to go with vertical or horizontal slices, or both if you like!


The other Image Slideshow component has many transition settings.  You will just have to play to see what settings you prefer.  Fade, Slide, Rain, Blinds and more.

Oh, and we also added a bunch more Fonts to the builder.  So now you have way more to choose from to make that perfect website.
