Best for

Blog, portfolio, creative agency, photography website or any other related website. Shape is intended to showcase your latest works and projects through the use of images.


Shape is a Photography WordPress Theme with a clean, minimalist design, smooth transition effects, a beautiful showcase and a rich set of advanced features powered by our latest version of Tesla Framework.

We’ve packed Shape with our latest features like responsive design, filterable galleries, awesome transition effects, AJAX contact form and newsletter subscription, Google Maps with drag & drop functionality and much more.

If you want to showcase your image photos in a stylish way, Shape WordPress Theme is definitely for you.


Since Shape is a photography theme, visitor’s attention should only focus on the photos and images posted on it; this is why Shape has fewer panels to distract visitor’s attention, in contrast to Design Portfolio or Revoke which by default use more panels, which for a photography theme, might not be so suitable, since the extra panels distract the visitors from the photos and images.

Another difference between Shape and Design Portfolio is the “About us” page, which in Shape’s case is more suitable for non-conformists designers and photographers, who want to stand out from the crowd and have an individual identity.


Shape is powered by Tesla Framework, a powerful administration tool that comprises all our great features and allows you to easily customize the look and functionality of your theme, without advanced knowledge of programming. You can customize and manage your theme settings from a dedicated area within your WordPress Admin.

Check out some of the cool features that Tesla Framework has to offer:

    I have a question. If we purchase one of your themes, does the copyright information stay under Tesla Themes or can we customize that for our company’s copyright information?

    Thank you,

      It does not have this possibility by default. You need to customize it. Either by your own or ask us to do it. Lab – http://teslathemes.com/lab/

    I really love the look of this theme. Can I use a PanoPress (plugin, panopress.org) shortcode to have a panorama play button show in a panel’s rollover info? And can I embed a panorama (interactive virtual reality photo) in a post as one of the media blocks? If so (even if it needs minor tweaks) this theme could be great!

      Hi there,

      Our theme is built using WP standards, so it should be compatible with the specified plugin,
      Please try to integrate it in your theme, it should work fine because as I saw on the plugin instructions page, it uses shortcodes for the panoramic media,
      Anyways, you can always contact our support forum in order to get a hint or a solution, so please keep in touch with us !

      Best Regards
