The design

Our Dark Theme is the opposite of the Light Theme, featuring a black background with white text. It is designed to make your photos stand out in a dark, elevated and elegant setting, perfect for photography. It is one of the most popular store themes with Picfair photographers.

The theme features a simple, stylish font with ample space around each image (which is, by default, displayed in rows).

With this theme, we encourage you to use the range of customisation features available with Picfair Stores and experiment with the layout, such as choosing whether to display your images in rows, squares, or full-screen and how much (or how little) space you want to appear between them.

What types of images does this theme suit in particular?

We’ve designed our Dark Theme to work well with all types of photography, but dark themes tend to work better with certain kinds of images than others...

For example, dark themes work beautifully with black and white photos, architecture photography, street photography (particularly at night), and landscape photography like astrophotography or sunrise and sunset photography. For these types of images and subjects, you’ll find a dark theme works beautifully. However, like all our themes, the best thing to do is experiment; you’ll soon see what works for you!
