UPDATE: ImagePress Elements is now included and active by default in ImagePress.
Over time, we developed our own ImagePress-native theme, Noir UI, and we’ve added lots of features and native ImagePress integration, such as profiles, single image template, custom sidebar and custom shortcodes.
Last month we introduced ImagePress Elements, an add-on which adds several useful features to any theme.
We are also working on ImagePress 8.0, a completely new experience, allowing for better performance and more flexibility in implementing image galleries.
We decided to discontinue Noir UI and switch all features to ImagePress Elements, allowing site administrators to implement Noir UI features to any theme.
ImagePress Elements has no (or basic) styles attached, making it easy to plug it into any WordPress theme. For the moment, the add-on offers an email image approval feature, a dashboard bulk upload feature, a category shortcode and a user directory shortcode.
Over time we’ll add more features to the add-on and we’ll allow more themes to take advantage of the great features that ImagePress provides.
