What is the PhotoShelter Wordpress Plugin?

PhotoShelter has released an official Wordpress Theme, which is fully integrated with your PhotoShelter Account. Wordpress is a blogging platform, and if you have never heard of it before, you can find out more at This wordpress theme is great for photographers who already have an active wordpress blog, or for those photographers who are thinking of creating. Creating a photo blog is a great idea, and while its a bit too much to go into here, having a wordpress blog will make it more likely that your posts and photos will be found by the search engines.

PhotoShelter's official Wordpress Plug-in seamlessly integrates your blog and PhotoShelter Account

The most amazing thing about the official PhotoShelter Wordpress Theme is that it allows you separately operate two distinct Websites (aka your Wordpress Blog and your PhotoShelter Website), but maintain the exact same "skin", so it looks identical to the end-user! So as you create blog articles, you can insert photos directly from your PhotoShelter account quite easily. And when users click on a photo or a gallery, it brings you directly to the photoshelter account where they can purchase and license your photos. The genius is, it looks like its the same site! Quite a nice tool.
