Zen Photo Themes
...launching soon

At LOUDSPARKS, we’ve been fortunate to work with amazing photographers and artists. In every project, we’ve started with the belief that the best design gets out of the user’s way and that you can craft unforgettable portfolios by keeping things simple and obsessing over the details.

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that we’re launching ZenPhotoThemes.

The natural next step for LOUDSSPARKS is to commit our focus to helping as many creatives as possible, and through ZenPhotoThemes is how we hope to achive this. Will pour our passion into developing high end themes that any artist can benefit from.

We invite you to join and grow together!

EasyCMS: Clean Back-Office for Photographers

Elegant Admin Area, that we use on all our projects. Allows you to update and control every aspect of your portfolio website in the most intuitive and effective manner

Overview

We wanted to create an admin system that freed the artist from having to rely on the designer to keep his site updated.

After studying some of the already popular systems (like wordpress) we decided to come up with our own custom built solution that would really fit the portfolio websites.

You can manage pages / content / galleries with ease, using intuitive drag & drop for reordering and multi-file upload for time saving and efficiency.

We took SEO under high consideration, each image uploaded is renamed and tagged with relevant keywords. It comes straight with Google Analytics integration and other SEO settings (ex: html5 micro-data). All our projects hit top page rankings for artist names and location. (ex: "Steven Paul New York")

Also for each image server automatically creates multiple size versions, creating most effective bandwidth transfer and fastest load times.

The system is built with the modern BackBone.js framework, and was thought as an App, making everything as interactive and intuitive as possible.

Features


  • Clean, simple, elegant and to the point;
  • Manage Unlimited pages / galleries / images;
  • Ability to create your own navigation structure with ease;
  • Automatic SEO engine - renames and tags all uploaded images with relevant keywords (consistent top page rankings for photographers' name and location);
  • Google Analytics support & integration;
  • Intuitive drag & drop for creating image flows and control of site's navigation structure;
  • Ability to clone pages and play with various image sequences, making it easier to find the best flow;
  • Ability to disable pages through the publish option;
  • Multi-file upload, making big updates as comfortable as possible (you can upload more than 20 images at once, not having to select each one);
  • Built on modern Backbone.js engine - interactive and intuitive;
