Today we’ve got two great new free themes for you: Sunspot and Triton Lite.
Inspiration for Sunspot came from one of our older and beloved classics, Sunburn (and perhaps a bit from the recent solar storms). A sharp theme with subtle grid lines and sun-splashed accents, Sunspot is a great all-purpose canvas for your blog, especially if you prefer a dark color scheme.
Sunspot offers two arrangements for posts on the front page: single-column (default) or double-column (pictured above). Additional features include a small, logo-sized custom header for the top left corner, a custom background, two optional widget areas, and a responsive layout that adapts gracefully to smaller screen sizes. Read more about it on the Theme Showcase, or head over to Appearance → Themes in your Dashboard and take it for a spin.
Next up is Triton Lite, a clean and simple—yet versatile—theme designed with photographers in mind. Its home page and archive pages offer truly dynamic layouts that snap to both the heights and widths of all available content on a page, thus creating tight and tidy post arrangements that beautifully showcase your images.
Designed by Towfiq I., Triton Lite comes bundled with three different widget areas, a featured post slider, custom accent and link color options, and a full-width page template. As usual, read more about Triton Lite and its features on the Theme Showcase, or, if you want to start using it right away, visit Appearance → Themes to activate it on your blog.

Sunspot is truly beautiful. What is really great about is that the eye normally travels to the right side of a page. Sunspot has beauty throughout the entire page which continues to lead the eye back to the left; nearly forceing you to read the writing under each of the pictures. Therefore, you cannot help but read in it’s entirety. Not only beautiful but a great marketing tool. Wunderbar!

Yeah! Just what we need!

Wow, your new theme has completely transformed my blog; I actually like it now; I was feeling discouraged. Thank you!!!

We love that theme, Sunspot But we preferred using it not as dark as this, so we changed its background to red.
Mar 14th at 6:47 pm
it looks very good!

Triton Lite comes very close to your WordPress.com homepage style. I’d hope you release similar themes for everyday blogging and not just for the specialized photography blogs.
Mar 15th at 3:01 am
So there’s already a lot of fit-for-photography-blogs themes going out. How about themes that look good for text/literary type blogs?

I changed my theme to Sunspot. One of the better looking themes. Thank you!

In Sunspot, I love how the pictures pop against the smooth dark backdrop. As for Triton Lite, a school project looks like a good fit for this theme. Great work WordPress!

Thanks for the information to the people that have blogs. I myself have been bloging for a year now and find it to be interesting and for those who are starting out don’t give up. I have tried and tested ever plugin some work and some don’t I browse web for information that would help those in the topics there
looking for There have been blogs that I’d visit that had very little on them but still had good ideas. I have been following you’re blog and you have been putting out good information. I do believe that communicating with others is the best teacher. For now I will have to say keep up the good work
“Thanks For All”
