Layouts: Photo Showcase or Design Gallery ↑ Back to Top

Snapshot is set up to function as a photoblog/photo showcase, as well as a design gallery. The built-in theme options allows you to switch between the two options.

The main difference is the photo showcase does not use an external link (for example when using Snapshot as a CSS design gallery, the thumbnail links internally), and the detail page uses a larger preview image.

There are also subtle layout differences between detail pages of the two templates. Experiment and switch between the two to understand which suits.
