One of the best things about using WordPress is that it offers a lot of gallery themes. These choices come in handy when your content is more about the images than the text. E-commerce websites and users who prefer a magazine-style layout will find it preferable to use WordPress gallery themes, especially premium themes which can be customized more fully.
With hundreds of gallery themes to choose from, it can be overwhelming to find the right one. Keep in mind that while WordPress does allow you to change themes whenever the whim strikes you, it is best to experiment before you have uploaded the majority of your content. Just do a couple of posts to see how you feel about it before committing fully.
We have compiled a list of top 10 WordPress gallery themes for your convenience. Take a look and you just might find the one.
1. PhotoCrati – One of the reasons why Photocrati is so popular is because it is one of the few WordPress themes that has a built-in e-commerce galleries.
