I took the basic layout of the a theme by the wonderfully talented Rosendo:
If you go to his website there are plenty of other gorgeous themes you can choose from, though I don’t think the original layout for this particular theme is still available.
Things I did to alter the layout:
- Darkened wallpaper and shadow border.
- Changed font sizes for ease of reading because I am a blind thing.
Changed the image resizing code from HTML to CSS due to an error in which smaller images were stretched to fit the blog and thus lost their clarity.This actually made the images only re-size if over the limit (and looked nicer), but it also disabled the click to enlarge function so I switched it back.
