Imagely is a WordPress product and service provider of premium WordPress photography themes, plugins, and managed web hosting for professional and amateur photographers.
Imagely is not a new company but a rebrand of Photocrati. Previously Photocrati was both the company name as well as the name of their flagship project – the Photocrati WordPress theme. Photocrati has now become just the product, and Imagely the new brand and company name.
Under the new Imagely brand they’re now offering premium WordPress themes, the nextGEN gallery plugin and managed WordPress hosting for turnkey photography websites for photographers.
WordPress Themes for Photographers
Imagely offer an impressive collection of premium WordPress photography themes. They’re clean, modern and photo-centric designs that put your images front and center.

Genesis is a top notch WordPress theme framework with rock solid security, ultra flexible foundational code, blazing fast performance and excellent out-of-the-box SEO. It means your building on a highly optimized, well built and future proof platform.
