Retouch: A Free, Responsive Photo Theme for WordPress

Our friends at Graph Paper Press have just released a beautiful new theme called Retouch, adding to their growing number of free, responsive WordPress themes.

Swipe or Click Through Galleries

One of the coolest features of this theme is the ability to navigate the gallery images with a click or swipe, which is excellent when viewing on mobile devices. With more and more internet users accessing websites through mobile devices or touchscreen tablets, this feature could truly set your gallery apart from the rest and help your images get noticed where other sites will fall short. It’s all about the experience.

The screenshot below shows an example of the galleries in action. View the live demo to test drive the galleries.

Images in the theme are handled through post formats. Retouch supports the Image, Gallery and Standard formats. You can also change the wood background to a custom background and add your own custom header, so you won’t be limited to the demo design.

This clean, HTML5 free WordPress portfolio theme will modernize your portfolio or photoblogging site and make it viewable across mobile devices. Try resizing the browser on the demo to see how it well it responds. Responsiveness is key to your site translating across the increasing variety of screen sizes and resolutions available to consumers. If you don’t make sure that your site is compatible with this changing landscape, you may be left behind when it comes to mobile traffic.

Retouch is free, but you’ll need to sign up with Graph Paper Press in order to download it. While you’re there, check out some of their latest theme releases and support packages.
