Stripefolio is a clean free WordPress portfolio theme designed to function both as a readable blog and website as well as a fullscreen WordPress portfolio showcase for designers, painters, artists, photographers, etc.
Have a look at the Stripefolio live demo!
The portfolio gallery is shown in a stripe at the bottom of the page that becomes opaque/visible only when the mouse cursor is moved over it. This also causes the website content to nicely and smoothly slide out of view and leave the entire browser view empty for larger versions of the gallery images to show up in an outstanding full screen mode.
This free WordPress portfolio theme offers modern looks comparable to those of many premium WordPress themes completely FREE of charge! These include great typography as well as tight professional graphics design quality that would rival most other WordPress portfolio themes designs.
The portfolio gallery stripe at the bottom will give your site an extra slick and modern look allowing your visitors to get a good full-screen view of your images.
You have options to make the portfolio gallery stripe at the bottom to show only on certain pages, to fade in/out of view or to always be visible. Image previews will smoothly zoom in view similar to OSX dock bar icons.
