Today we’ve got a treat for you — a new theme called Selecta. This might be the theme you’ve been waiting for if videos or images will be the primary focus of your blog. The design, originally created by Obox Design, fuses the modern with the retro — a bold, striking color palette (in six color schemes), rounded edges, and wider-than-usual frames around content.
Selecta is loaded with elements that highlight your images and videos. First, there’s the featured slider that showcases your sticky posts at the top of the front page. Next, there’s the “Latest Posts” row that places your four most recent posts in fun, rounded boxes, also on the front page. That’s not all — if you create a post with the video or image Post Format, Selecta will display your content in a wide, one-column template on the single post view. This ensures that your images and videos receive your readers’ undivided attention. Talk about showing off!
I certainly haven’t revealed everything this theme has to offer. Click on over to the Theme Showcase to read more about Selecta and all of its great features.

Love it! Just activated it for my photo blog. Thanks so much!
Oh I shall keep this theme in mind as I’ll have a new photo blog up and running soon.
This is the theme I was waiting for since one year! Thank you!
Brilliant! So much so that I could not resist an immediate activation to my blog. Now to look into the nitty-gritty details…
Good one with nice effects!
Very Cool! Something a bit different, I like it!
Nice to see some dark themes again.
Premium theme that isn’t premium (priced). Love your work!
Wow! It looks marvelous :D Great theme!
Great Themes :)
Love it. Gonna use it for my son’s photos blog, which hasn’t been updated in over 1 year. Yikes. Now I have a reason. Thanks.
Oh I like it. I might have a use for this. Thanks.
This is called a real treat ! Wow!

Very nice job. i like it.
Awesome! And I can’t believe it’s really FREE! Woot! Woot! :) THANK YOU!
After a very long time found the theme for my photolog. Thank you!! I wanted this Featured Posts and Latest Post slider thing. To an extent I am satisfied now.
Like it :)
I have used this theme on my other site at WordPress. I have used little touch of custom CSS. This is a great theme. Thanks!
Simple but nice theme.
Nice theme. i like it.
Ohh it’s really nice. I don’t do photography but it’s nice and colourful.
Even though it wouldn’t work with my blog, I like it! I love the color themes as well. This is so much more fun than boring white/black themes!
Definitely gonna try this out on my photography site.
Nice. I like it.
Wow, this is original, cutting-edge, different. I’ve been thinking about trying video blogging, and if I ever get around to it, this looks like the theme.
A nice theme! I’m using it now.
Highly colourful and engaging in a way that makes people pay closer attention to a brighter message. I do hope the spirituality set will be quick to use it.
It’s beautiful and free. Thank you very much WordPress. :-) I’m using it now.
So cute. I love it.
Great theme this, simplistic and functional with cool colourings, just what I need for an audio/visual blog, thank you!
Oh and love the font that has been selected, I can’t stand Ariel and the likes, ha ha :))
Looks good! Thumbs up for the rounded edges.
I’m surprised that this theme isn’t premium. Love this! :)
Thinking about adopting this theme. I’ve been using the current one for years.
I love the theme. Already have my photo-blog up and running. Thanks a ton.
Very nice theme, thank you for sharing it!
I love the colours.
I love the many different options for colour. Bravo!
This would totally work for the new blog/site I’m planning to put up, dedicated to island civics of SXM. Especially for incorporating Youtube videos about government history.
I absolutely adore the look!
tempting me to change!! I look forward to seeing this around the bloggosphere!
