Downloadable Content for Styles with Shortcodes – Picture Frames 5 (Golden Ratio)
Why did we release this bundle of Picture Frames?
For thousands of years artists, designers and architects have either intentionally or unintentionally used a common ratio in their work that is aesthetically pleasing. The magic number is 1.61803398874989484820….. or simply 1.62. This is known as the Golden Ratio or the divine proportion, golden mean or golden section.
We have used the “Golden Ratio” when we created these picture frames. Consider this example. If you have a picture frame that is 550 pixels wide in order reach the divine proportion the other side should be 550 px divided by 1.618 = 339.92 ≈ 340 px. This will create the perfect ratio between the width and height of the picture frame and it will look aesthetically pleasing.
The bundle is now available as Downloadable Content for every customer that has entered their License Key for Styles with Shortcodes. The pixel dimensions in the parenthesis indicates how large the visible image in the picture frame is. The Shortcodes are using TimThumb to automatically generate the thumbnail and the large version of the image that opens in a LightBox when you click the magnifying glass can be up to 2000 px wide. The picture frames also support Video playback in LightBox.
