GREENSBORO, N.C., April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Now that Spring is officially here PhotoBiz thought our customers might want to start the new season off by freshening up the look of their site with one of the three brand new Portfolio Site designs being released as part of our second "New Feature Friday!"

First up is Southbourne Beach. This beautiful English beach is known for its stunning cliff side coastal views. In the Southbourne Beach Portfolio Site design, PhotoBiz borrowed inspiration from the Gordon Zig Zag, which is the nearest access to the beach. This inspired the main design element, the prominent zig zag area that contains the site navigation within the bottom of the design. Within this design, this navigation menu background color, as well as drop-down menu background colors can be enhanced using our color-shifting technology. The gallery pages can also utilize color-shifting to highlight the thumbnail image frame, as well as the sliding bar that indicates the selected image.

Special thanks to Sandy Runner of Sandy Runner Photography from Folsom, California for allowing us to feature her images on the Southbourne Beach Portfolio Site Sample.

The second new Portfolio Site design is Lanikai Beach. In Hawaiian, 'Lanikai' translates to "heavenly sea," and it is this pristine beach as well as the view of the world famous Mokulua Islands that are the inspiration for the Lanikai Beach Portfolio Site design. Within this contemporary and elegant design, the social media icons seemingly float in the top right corner, echoing the islands outside the cove of Lanikai Beach. Gallery pages within this design stand out by taking full advantage of PhotoBiz's color-shifting technology. In addition to the navigation menu, several other elements also utilize color-shifting, including thumbnail images as well as social media icons and content area border.

Special thanks to Shauntelle Sposto of Sposto Photography in Long Beach, California for allowing us to feature her images on the Lanikai Beach Portfolio Site Sample.

The final new Portfolio Site design released in the second "New Feature Friday" is Green Beach. The Green Beach Portfolio Site design draws inspiration from the beautiful Puerto Rican beach of the same name. The semi-translucent patterned area that serves as a background for the navigation menu and social media icons mimics the clear, shallow waters that make Green Beach a popular snorkeling destination. Within this design the logo appears within the upper left corner. It is best to use a transparent PNG for the logo so that it will overlay the images of the site. One of the unique aspects of this design is that the bottom patterned area (which also utilizes our color-shifting technology) acts as an overlay upon your images, allowing them to take center stage.

We would like to give a special thank you to Carolyn Rife of Carolyn Rife Photography in Aliso Viejo, California for letting us feature her work on the Green Beach Portfolio Site Sample.
