If your website content comes in multiple media, you will want to check out these great themes that allow you to present your content in all its awe-inspiring glory. Photographers, videographers, bands and directory managers will all find something useful in this group of themes.

1. WooTube

As you may have guessed from the name, WooTube is a video player. But what you may not know is that it works equally as well for a photo gallery, CSS gallery, portfolio and even a personal blog and you don’t even need to add videos to your posts. But, of course, it works best with video content.

Unique Features:

  • Easy functionality to create video posts
  • Videos are resized automatically and WooTube even publishes the embed code for your readers
  • Integration of the WP-PostRatings plugin for some added fun & interactiveness
  • A completely widgetized sidebar with custom widgets included in the theme packaging. No third party widgets required
  • 7 amazing colour schemes to choose from!

2. City Guide

This theme caters to directory-based WordPress sites, such as a guide to a city that lists shops or restaurants and custom content about those places all archived with geo-tags.

Unique Features

  • A custom home page featured module that can be used as an about section for the site. You can dedicate an image or a Google Map to this area.
  • Google Maps integration for geo-tagging of posts, with a custom map panel for your blog post editor and map widgets for usage in the sidebar. The integration also pulls the location from the map and displays the physical address next to the map in the location details.

3. Object

Designed to feature your photos and videos perfectly, this is a supremely flexible theme with a great jQuery image gallery that will make your portfolio shine.

Unique Features

  • A neat javascript photo gallery slider, which automatically loads the images you upload via WordPress in your post
  • Select from one to five column layout on your front page and category pages
  • Adding videos is just as easy as adding your photos, by simply pasting the embed code in the post embed field
  • 5 Custom Woo Widgets (About, Popular, Recent, Flickr and Search). Widgetized areas in footer, photo post left sidebar and blog post right sidebar
  • 15 smart colour schemes to choose from

4. Unsigned

Unsigned is a powerful, clever and easy theme for musicians and bands looking to showcase their music, tours, photos, videos and band members all from within WordPress. It also allows you to sell your albums and merchandise thanks to the WooCommerce integration.

Unique Features

  • The design will scale to fit on all browser widths/resolutions and on all mobile devices.
  • The homepage is one hugely flexible layout powered by widgets and theme options that allow you to enable/disable each and every module. You can really create whatever layout you like, highlighting only your most important information to grab your fans’ attention.

5. Statua

Another great theme aimed at the photography crowd to show off their photos and galleries in a stylish fashion in WordPress. The theme makes use of JavaScript sliders and alternative layouts to make it easy to setup and customize.

Unique Features

  • Statua takes full advantage of the new custom post type functionality that came with WordPress 3.0, so adding photos and galleries is easy.
  • Statua currently includes 3 alternative layouts which you can set as your homepage or use as a page template. Each layout has its own set of options in the options panel.
