New drag-and-drop website builder
What if you could create a stellar website without any design experience? With Flex Editor building and updating your site pages becomes a fun, creative experience, even if you’re doing it for the first time. Unlike our Classic Editor, the new builder allows you to drag and drop elements, move them around, and create one-of-a-kind layouts.
Whether you’re new to website design or are an advanced user - the process is simple and intuitive for everyone. Resize and reposition texts, images, and videos. Overlap them to create elegant compositions, and include design elements such as image borders, rounded corners, or separating lines. While you are able to create fully flexible layouts, you will be guided by a grid system to help you arrange content onto pages and ensure everything is aligned. Now it’s so easy to build a photography website that is true to your vision!
Flex Editor is available with all Website themes, for all users on free and paid plans. You can also continue using the classic builder, just as before.
Professionally-designed Flex Blocks to help you get started
Our team prepared a curated collection of predefined blocks, called Flex Blocks. They are all powered by Flex Editor and tailored to your photography needs. Use these blocks as they come, by simply replacing the demo content with your own, or personalize them per your vision. You don’t need advanced design or coding skills in order to achieve a top-notch look for your website.
Design your own, unique blocks
While building your website, you can also start off with a blank Flex Block. Think of it as an empty canvas, where you can get creative, implement artistic ideas, and design your own layouts from scratch. Add various types of elements, from images and videos, to text, shapes, and buttons. Customize everything inside your block per your preferences - the positioning and size of each element, the fonts and colors, the block height. There are no limitations on text characters inside paragraphs, allowing you to share as much text as you need.
The best part is that you gain more control over the way you share your work, and can create a website that is a true representation of your brand and personality. A site that is beautiful, intentional, and has every component purposefully placed on the page.
Control how your website looks on mobile
Now, you have even more freedom and flexibility to tailor the way your website displays across devices. Flex Editor lets you access the mobile and tablet views, make edits to the layout, reposition and resize items, and ensure you’re providing the best possible experience to all your site visitors.

Rob Lloyd Photography | Website: roblloyd.ca
“I’ve played around with the Flex Editor for a few hours now; I love it! It’s very easy to use and integrates so well with the existing website editing tools. Being able to fine-tune any layout specifically for desktop, tablet, and mobile view is incredible. I can make my website look exactly how I want it to without having to know how to code. Another amazing update from Pixieset.”
