Is impossible to organize works gallery!!!
For the galleries I have to create a page for each photo and then associate it with the category ... it's crazy!
In landscape view on smartphone, photo zoom does not work properly

for Documentation Quality

Seems not to work with the recent WordPress releases (5.x). At least not on MacOS and Safari. The Documentation does not fit at all. I can't get it to work.

for Bugs

A lot of bugs on this theme specially on try to make the simplest changes very limited on what you can change be careful before buying if you want to change things you might not be able too.

not uptimized at all, and very slow...
I used more than 100 themes but it's the first time I see something coded this way.

Das Theme bekommt nur drei Punkte von mir, weil es zahlreiche Bugs gibt.
+ das Theme ist wirklich sehr schick
+ Darstellung auf allen Geräten (PC, Smartphone) gut
+ viele Text- und Farbeinstellungen
+ SEO-Tools (optional) funktionieren auch bei Fotos
- sehr schlechte Anleitung
- Einstellungen nicht intuitiv
- teils fatale Bugs z.B. reagiert ein Button nicht, Lösung nur durch Tricks
- Wichtige Einstellungen fehlen z.B. Transparenz nur direkt via style.css änderbar
- Bilder können nur einer Kategorie zugeordnet werden
- trotz Auswahl einer Kategorie z.B schwarzweiß Fotos, werden bei der Diashow alle Bilder angezeigt
- keine Fotosuche d.h. keine Stichwörter für Fotos
Wie das Theme sich bei großen Fotomengen verhält bleibt abzuwarten

The theme only gets three points from me, for there are several bugs.
- the theme is really pretty/beautiful
- graphical representation is good on all devices (PC, Smartphone)
- many text and colour-related settings
- SEO-Tools (optional) work on photos too
- very bad manual
- settings are not intuitive
- partly fatal bugs, e.g. a button doesn‘t work, a solution can only be achieved through tricks
- important settings are missing, e.g. the transparency is only changeable directly via style.css
- pictures/photos can only be assigned to one category
- despite having chosen a category, e.g. black-and-white pictures, all pictures get shown during the diashow
- no photo search which means no catchwords for photos

How the theme reacts when a big amount of photos comes into play is left to be seen

for Customizability

No clasifica como me gustaría mis trabajos, y subir las imágenes es muy lento.

for Flexibility

Guys, honestly - this theme doesn't cost this money.
Lots of reasons why:

1 - Galleries system: horrible ideas - each image for gallery its a featured image, so when you have 100-200 portfolio images, you can just create NORMALLY gallery 20-30 image and after that create menu, insert this menu into left sidebar.

2 - Buggy plugin. Theme has only one plugin, when you trying to install it, it shows some string from php and looks like something wrong, when installation process is passing.

3 - Low customization level. You cant set just one image for one gallery and different views types for other galleries - just one example.

Design is nice, but its just a cover. Under this cover.. Guys, honestly - its a horrible service.
