Today I’d like to tell you a little about this nicely designed Blogger template called Point of View, created by Biyan Pasau of Indonesia. It’s a template that caught my attention because of its clean and almost minimalistic design.
There are two types of layout for you to choose from: grid view and standard layout. And needless to say, it’s a gallery type of template that’s perfect for photography and graphic design bloggers who are likely to showcase images in almost every blog entry.
The grid view is great if you’d like to highlight and give primary attention to your images. Your visitors can click on the thumbnails to view the details of the entire post. The thumbnails are 270 by 270 pixels in size and are arranged in a 3 by 3 grid. There’s a link at the bottom right of the page for viewers to look at more images.
The standard layout on the other hand, is where each post is fully visible. The image is displayed in full but resized enough to fit the column and is placed at the center and above the text (e.g. description). Viewers can view the image in its true size just by clicking on it. It’ll be displayed in a lightbox (powered by jQuery).
“Point of View” is a premium template which you can avail here for $12.
Other features include:
- Background, color and font customization
- Effective thumbnail generator
- Support pages
- Extensive documentation
Conclusion: Frankly, if there’s one thing I wish there was a way to easily customize the grid layout (i.e. adjust number of rows/columns and thumbnail size). But that’s not to say that the template is not good – in fact, it’s actually great!
All in all, considering that it has a clean and simple design and yet still able to have that certain level of elegance, I’d say that this template is already gorgeous and quite impressive as it already is. That being said, I’d definitely recommended it to anyone who’s thinking about a putting up a gallery site.
