Images to the Left! Images to the Right!
We already mentioned the customizable sidebar that you can put on the left or right side and also the thumbnails that can be add to give a more custom look to your content, but why is it such a great feature?
When browsing for content, an image provides information much faster in a smaller space than text does. A thumbnail of a product, service, news, or post can give a much more creative and attractive approach to your content as well as making it more intriguing for your viewership.

All your content is important but every now and then a special piece of content requires a bit of special attention from your audience. Karen enables webmasters to set up a showcase slider for these special featured posts.
The theme provides the option to choose between a horizontal slide and a fade effect for the slider – both subtle but visually appealing nonetheless.
