*THIS DESIGN REQUIRES THE PURCHASE OF PROPHOTO 6 TO WORK.
We’ve just released Minimal in our store! We did make one big change aside from the obvious that it’s now responsive, and that’s lessen the amount of photoshop files. In fact all our new designs have almost no files. We never liked how we had to have so many files and almost require photoshop files to customize the design, so we’ve taken a huge step in trying to reduce as much as possible. Instead we’ve put more focus into providing support through our support website, which we’ve been adding new articles daily for new designs. Minimal should be popping up on there soon!

ROADMAP 2016 PART THREE
We’ve decided to go ahead and add this to a page that we’ll just keep updating frequently as we make changes! Click here to see the ROADMAP.
We decided to delay both Mitty, and Carbon which put our other designs on release for March back to April. Why the change? ProPhoto’s “Buttons” feature is coming back within the next two weeks in a big beautiful way and we wanted to save those designs for that feature release. In the meantime we’ll be working on other items on the Roadmap and designs that don’t really require the buttons so much from 5.
We also had to add some more retirements to the list due to just not being good designs for a responsive environment. The current list of retirements are; Sparrow, Wunderlust, and Skyfall.
We’re REALLY hoping we can work it out so that Shepard can make the switch, we can’t promise it at this point. Custom borders isn’t something currently built into 6 yet, which means it’s going to take a lot of background files (meaning photoshop files) that have to work together with responsive design to make it look right. If we can’t do that we’ll have to find some other way of creating a similar design to Shepard. That one along with urban are both up in the air. If they do somehow make it we can guarantee that designs with lots of textures or custom graphics will have a bunch of photoshop files just like before. That’s something we won’t be able to avoid.
Lastly, please be aware that we are REMOVING all ProPhoto 5 designs when ProPhoto 6 launches. This is the first year we’ve ever sold old designs from an older version of a theme, but once 6 releases officially there will be no more need to sell those older designs and we’ll make the full transition to ProPhoto 6. Our support portal for P5 will stay open of course even after P5 designs are retired. At that point, we’ll make an announcement a week or so ahead of time to give people plenty of warning.
