If you have been following any of my previous content, you may have gathered that there is a handy little piece of photo editing software I have become pretty fond of using over the years. I have used this software to quickly edit photos taken with both the Nikon D80 DSLR camera, as well as a camera phone. 

The great thing about this software, Luminar 4 that is, is that it allows you to quickly achieve satisfying results and repeat them in only a few clicks. Plus there are a few super useful tools available, ideal for portrait, landscape and architectural photography.

Before we get to the three highly recommended WordPress theme builders I have in store, let us first go through the reasons why a theme builder is such an essential WordPress tool.

Now, besides its visual front-end design and editing interface. Essentially a theme builder will allow you full front-end customisation without the need for coding. 

A good theme builder will allow you to customise every aspect of your WordPress website allowing you to more readily maintain design consistency.

From wireframe to Web App

In the world of web design, the language can be very misleading, even for well seasoned designers. So don’t allow terms such as; wireframe, user-flow and framework confuse you with images of complicated diagrams, with signs and symbols that only someone with specialised “secret” training will understand.
