All templates have the same Album Page style tweak options:

- Hide Album Share Link - Hide or display the Share button
The artist name and album description text follow your site's body font style. The album title follows the Heading 1 font. The names of these tweaks vary by template.
For most templates, the Share button follows either the body text or body links style. In the Skye family, the Label Color tweak changes the color of the Share button.
