And we have a winner!

Sarah Goblot of Black Ink Photography was chosen by as the winner, using the sequence generator and a spreadsheet.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated. We’ll have to do it again next year!

BLACK FRIDAY, BABY! We’re so excited, we literally cannot wait until the real Black Friday!

So to get prepared, we’re offering a huge $60 off our Works package, $40 off the Platinum theme, and $20 off the Classic theme! Just enter the discount code BF in your shopping cart by the end of Black Friday, Nov 27, 2009.

BUT WAIT! I mentioned a giveaway, remember? How does a $100 Amazon Gift Card grab you? Maybe you can buy that lighting setup that my wife keeps telling me about you can’t stop staring at?

1 winner will be randomly chosen on Saturday, Nov 28, 2009. The giveaway is open to PhotoPressPro users only. There are 2 ways to enter:

* Purchase the theme with discount code BF by the end of Black Friday, Nov 27, 2009, and you’re automatically entered.
* Current PhotoPressPro customers can enter by leaving a comment with a link to your PhotoPressPro blog. Just make sure you enter a valid email address so we can get in touch with you if you win.

If you’re not familiar with PhotoPressPro, you should know that it’s not just another WordPress theme. It’s built for photographers – not programmers. The easy-to-use PPP Control Panel contains hundreds of design options; from a header slideshow, 20 fonts, and right-click text options, all the way down to alternating comment background colors. And the revolutionary Snapshots feature allows you to save your settings so you can pull them back up later, as many times as you want. Top it all off with world class customer service, and you have the best WordPress photoblog available today.

Now, what was I talking about before? Oh, yeah.

PhotoPressPro Platinum 1.1 Released Image

PhotoPressPro Platinum 1.1 Released

November 18, 2009

Things are heating up in the PhotoPressPro kitchen! We’ve added some tasty new features to the Platinum theme. And while we were at it, we chomped down on some crunchy bugs too.

I’d like to apologize to those of you who may have been grossed out by the crunchy bugs reference. Or maybe it wasn’t so much the crunchy bugs, as the chomping down, that bothered you. If that is the case, I also wish to apologize.

Enough nonsense. Here’s the rundown on the new version:

New features

Configurable Timestamps

You can now show the post date underneath the title! Or the author, time, categories, or tags. Or, show any, all, or none of these after the post! Don’t believe me? Check out the new Layout > Timestamp tab below. Just a few clicks to timestamp bliss.(©2009)


Custom Font Size

Instead of small, medium, or large, enter a custom pixel size for any font on your blog. That looks like this:


Bugs Tweaks

Menu fixes. Large widgets, such as contact forms, should now look correct in the dropdown menu.
CSS/IE tweaks. Those of you using Internet Explorer should have a slightly better looking Control Panel. Those using Firefox or Safari will have a far better looking Control Panel.
And maybe more. That may be too embarrassing to mention.

We are always listening to our customers and using their feedback to build the best WordPress photoblog theme available today. Have an idea for a new feature? Drop us a line or leave a comment. We love hearing your feedback!

If you’re not a customer, what are you waiting for?
