ABOUT "ESSENTIALS SITES"
We build clean and simple websites for photographers
and designers who want a solution that isn't flash or some other
kind of traffic killers. And we keep the prices low enough for
anyone to afford a professionally designed site.
Our features are simple. And Powerful!
- A Fixed Home Page easily managed from the
WordPress platform and dynamic. You control your home page
and it is your entrance to the site.
- We build the "Essentials Sites" on the WordPress Platform.
That means you can control the content of your site.
- We include a free gallery tool that you can use to create
a professional looking portfolio. With big images, thumbnails
and a cool interface that shows your work off beautifully
- Customization: Our templates are easily
customized by anyone who knows WordPress. Or we can customize
them for you as well. It isn't expensive and you can get what
you want. You are free to customize, but not to sell or redistribute
any site designs taken from our designs.
- Widgets and Plugins. Some of our sites allow
for a lot of custom widgets and some don't. However, all of
our sites are ready for the widgets and plugins that work for
you: Analytics, SEO, Galleries, and some incredibly powerful
tools to help you manage your marketing and site views.
- Projects: We know lots of photographers don't want to "blog"
but do want the ability to create new and exciting content
for their website. We use the WordPress Blogging capabilities
to allow photographers to creage "Project" pages. (You can
use them for whatever you want, Projects is only a suggestion.)
- Use SlideShowPro.net's wondeful
tool to manage your galleries If you are using Lightroom,
get the Lightroom tool. If you are not using Lightroom, you
will need SlideShowPro for Flash, and SlideShowPro Director.
It is quite important to get your license before you get started
with your Lighting Essentials site. Or if you have fewer images,
we provide a free gallery tool with 60 image slots. (Each gallery
tool holds 60 images and you can order your site with one,
two, three or more galleries.) You can use nearly any gallery
tool with our sites.
- Add Images to posts and projects or use
the NewGen Gallery plugin to add a large number of images.
Our sites can also use "Lightbox" to show your images larger
when clicked. Simply install the plug-in and you are done.
