We’re happy to announce the release of version 2.7 of Photography Orders!

The major feature of version 2.7 is the ability to create titles, descriptions and keywords for your photos, and your clients can now search your photos using keywords.

We’ve released a new theme called “Natural Green”.

We’ve also made two of our themes mobile and tablet friendly. “Dark and Classy Gold” and “Light Royal Blue” are now “responsive designs” and will now change their layout to suit mobile devices when they are viewed on a mobile device.
