  1. This is a really great collection. I especially like that CION design — that purple background is really different from most blogs.

  2. Thanks for the work put in compiling this beautiful wordpress themes list. Some very good and simple designs that can be used for varity of blogging topics.

  4. This is really a great set of templates. I have been looking to change mine as they are just pretty generic in order to get going.
    I have been wondering about columns. It seems like a lot of the blogs I see are going to the posts on the left with two widget sidebars on the right. Do you know if there is a reason for this as far as how people read a site. The ones I have been noticing are pretty well commercialized on the sidebars so I wonder if that has something to do with it?
    Thanks for the great resources above.

  5. Good list. I might not love all of these themes, but that’s a matter of taste. Technically they look really well.
    My personal favorite – Evid

  6. I absolutely love the Portfolio Press theme. Seems very clean and easy to use. I’m looking for a functional, yet out of the ordinary site.

  7. Hi, that themes are really looking awesome thanks for sharing..
    Portfolio Press theme is one of my fav.
    thanks for the post..

  8. Thanks! I have been looking for a free theme for a site i recently launched. This saved me a lot of looking around! They are great… beautiful!

  9. I like evid the most. I have seen a few gallery themes, but most of them had a thing or two that i didn’t like much. This one looks good from all aspects. Thanks for sharing!

  10. These themes are a deal at $19.95 a year. It is really hard to come up with or find a free WordPress theme that really looks good. I am in the process of looking for a good 3 column WP theme right now. I am good at tweaking themes, but it is so much easier if you can find a good base.

  11. That Cion template is really nice looking. They all are but I really like that one. CSS Gallery is kinda cool too, really clean and fresh looking.

  12. I have just now switched over to the world of Word Press. After using Blogger for so long, Word press seems like going into a fine china shop after rolling in the mud all day.

    I hope to have my first Word Press blog up in the next week!!!

    Nice Themes!

  13. All the themes are nice but the elegant themes are just something else and $19.95 for the year is a bargain, you wouldn’t even get an hour of a designers time for that price, let alone getting the site built.

  14. Elegant Themes are some of my favorites – I have the “earthly touch” theme on the site I linked to here and have used a few others on many more. I LOVE the gallery ones – they’re almost enough to make me want to start up another site, even though I know I don’t have the time for it!

  15. This is a great list of gallery sites, and some Awesome WordPress themes. Elegant Themes are my favorite. Thank you for sharing with us.

  16. Another milestone in your feather. Very resourceful and I like all the themes. Refreshing with a twist. You’ll get a second glimpse always.

  17. Most people want to customize their blog, so this may be helpful to the people who ever are in need. Thanks for the upcoming themes.

  18. Elegant themes look great. Thanks for taking the time to compile the list and sharing it. Will be using it on a couple of my sites that look kind of boring now…

  19. Those are some beautiful WordPress Themes. Currently I am trying to find some great Zen Cart themes if anybody knows of a good source. I know that Zen Cart has a group of freebies, but I was looking for something a little more cutting edge.

  20. OMG! Cion and Evid are just so awesome! I love them. Well, you can’t get something nice without having to pay for it, right? =)

  22. Thanks for sharing these wonderful themes. I like the snapshot best because of its elegance and the contents are easily seen with its background color.

  23. The “Portfolio Press” theme impressed me. It presents a very professional photo studio theme. The grey colors and shades against the color photos provide a nice contrast!

  24. Thanks for this great resource. My favorites here are cion and evid, but they all look very good.
    Congratulations for this great blog!

  25. Thanks. I’ve been trying to make my own wordpress theme since I’m planning on migrating to wordpress and I’m cheap to hire a designer. :D It’s really hard work but I’m getting there. I just need a few inspirations like these to get me going.

  26. Snapshot looks beautiful for a photo style blog. That little girl by the wall picture? Sure looks like a real pro. Absolutely a great collection all around. Thank you for bringing it all together.

  27. Those last 4 from “Elegant Themes Club” are the best, especially the Evid one. Well, they say that you always get what you pay for and it’s true in this case.
    Thanks for gathering them all togheter.

  28. Some nicely made themes there. I tried several out (none that you posted) and in the end went with Thesis theme. Well worth the $87 as far as I am concerned. But I know a lot of people can’t justify spending money on a blog at this time.

  29. Choose the right keywords that are best suits your site. And don’t make the keyword stuffing more in the description the Google spider may not crawl the sites which look like a spams.

  30. Beautiful themes you have! When choose templates I’m always drawn to the darker themes but I don’t think readers prefer darker colored themes so I stick to the light colored themes. Nice work!

  31. You always post the best WordPress related stuff. Those do look awesome, I feel like I should start a picture blog just because of the available themes!

  32. Wow nice collection. I was just looking for a WP gallery theme for a new project I’m working on. Thanks for putting this together. This is a huge help!

  33. Beautiful themes, the art on the front of the Evid Theme is pretty cool! I’ve been building a blog for real estate in the Denver Golden and Evergreen market in Colorado and am trying to balance themes with a lot of photos and those the SEO well. Do you have any thoughts on a hybrid? I’ve been using Thesis and very happy with it.

  34. Portfolio-press theme looks elegant for business blogs and I think, it’s seo wordpress theme.Thanks

  35. Thanks for putting this together. These are very simple but professional looking, too many styles have too much going on.

  36. The BOTWG Gallery Theme looks great. I will try it for my image directory and see if it suits my needs. It looks simple and I feel it will blend well with my entire site, without doing any additional work on it.

  37. Wow, great collection. What can I say, I love free templates! I like Unstandard and PortfolioPress. Sharpfolio is also very good. There’s so many cool wordpress themes out there I wish I had another website.

  38. This is a great list of gallery sites, and some Awesome Word press themes. Elegant Themes are my favorite. Thank you for sharing with us…..Oh my, just bookmarked this. What a powerful set of WP themes! I love the eGallery! Thanks for this!

  39. This is really a great set of templates. I have been looking to change mine as they are just pretty generic in order to get going.

    Thanks for the great resources above.

  40. A wonderful portfolio of artistic imagery that does provide a complementary graphical element to the theme of the page. Thanks for showcasing the templates.

  41. Hi i like your site and the templates are just amazing! I was always searching for site like yours for templates i must say the template you have provided are commendable.

  42. Wow, I love sharpfolio. These are really rad. I actually have a friend who wants a nice looking template that he can tweak and mess around with so he can learn. I’ll refer him here. Great collection.

  43. These themes look great. I am going to have to demo some of them on my blog site to see if they mesh with my style. But so far I like what I see.

  44. They are all really great templates but I have to go with Evid being my favorite. That picture is incredible!

  45. I really like the simplicity of “The Unstandard.” I’ve been looking for something like this for awhile. Good collecton.

  46. Good list but i dont like any of them.I hope i will get a better theme next time.can you suggest me a better theme for my blog?it is relatively a new blog and h am looking for a good theme for my blog.

  47. They all are some good themes. Thanks i will keep them in mind next time i need a new theme i never seen some of them before.

  48. Endless possibilities with WordPress. Thanks for sharing these themes. I was really interested in the egallery and evid theme.

  49. I do not know why your beautiful themes remind me of my 5-year-before stamps collection. Thanks for your recommendations.

  50. Great list of gallery themes. So many to choose from i narrowed it down to half so far. I like themes with some text area besides all images and you listed some great designs.

  52. “A gallery or portfolio theme for WordPress can be very useful for a whole range of different sites. Here are 10 beautiful themes for you.”

    Interesting themes. It’s hard to decide which theme I would use for my blog. But I’m a bit bias for those with abstract design. In terms of theme, WordPress is, no doubt, without a match.

  53. Great post you have shared a valuable information and the plug in is great! The best way to SEO is still the link, it’s very important.

  54. the only reason i love wordpress is because of its themes… the variation ogf themes that wordpress provides are unique i never seen such ravishing themes anywhere… the snapshot theme is just amazing.. thanks for posting them pal

  55. I really like the design of the CION theme. Like most designers, I do like lots of cool artwork, but the real art to web design is keeping things simple.

  56. WordPress is pretty flexible with themes. I don’t know why they don’t call them templates though? Why the different nomenclature?

  57. I’ve been using wordpress for a while. Creating new templates is pretty easy, but using complete templates is the best! Often it is enough to download and edit a template. Add your own style, and of course, give some credit to the creaters.

  58. Those are really cool themes but I actually prefer your theme! While it might not be as “Flashy” I think it looks a lot more user friendly!

  59. Wow, this is a great collection of photo-centric themes. The only one I’ve tried that I wasn’t crazy about was eVid. I found it very difficult to manipulate easily (I’m not a PHP-nut, so perhaps it was just too complex for me). Great designs though. Haven’t seen 50% of them before.

  60. I guess word press is the king when it comes to blogs if you can design works of art like this. My blog is on wordpress.com and their themes are outdated and sad.

  61. A good theme is important. I like the last few. I wonder how well these themes will take web banner ads? They have been designed without. Don’t forget that great banner ads to market your site will help drive traffic to your themed website.

  62. Really awsome themes, when I look for free wordpress themes, I usually find lot of crap, found your page by accident and I must say this is special.

  63. WordPress is very popular these days and like many people, I am also using wordpress to expose my business. As it is of course the nice look makes people to stay around your site and the galleries given here are very beautiful and classic. I am going to choose one for myself. One more thing I would like to say is that your side bar must be on the right side as most of the popular blogs have this on the right and many people are now stacked with this, so to help your viewers, place this on right side.

  64. I have seen many themes and these ones are very nice. I tried creating a few with a software they seel but the quality is not even close to these themes.

  65. This is a nice list of themes. Looks like there is something for everyone here and I can appreciate the wide variety. Thanks!

  66. It seems like a lot of the blogs I see are going to the posts on the left with two widget sidebars on the right. I choose the Cion, because it has a great color combination.

  71. I’ve recommended the Portfolio Press theme to several of my friends who are photographers and artists and they seem to like the ease of use and functionality.

  72. Some great themes, thanks. Elegant themes do produce some real stunners but I would be interested in others thoughts on modifying some of their themes
