I've sent out a newsletter today explaining a little more details about what we are aiming to do with Pixify and some information about our beta test.

If anyone is interested it can be read here:

Hi Jacob

I went to your newsletter and then to your own site. Very smart and modern looking. But I scrolled to the bottom of the page and was looking at the footer when the screen froze. My other Chrome tabs were fine. It started working again and I looked at a specific image and it froze again - I was trying to press "Extended" but nothing worked. After a while, it starts again. Don't know if this is a server issue, but worth looking at.

On the more general point, I still have my Symbiostock (Version 2) site and it works fine. I recently moved it to a new hosting company to give myself some more storage for new images, but sales are rubbish - one or two a year. I only keep it because I put so much effort into it (and I know that make zero business sense but I'm attached to it!)

The site works fine for me when I use the latest version of Chrome. I have no problem on Android either. Very clean and stylish looking layout btw.

Thanks for the feedback Steve. It's definitely something I'll look into and see if we can try to replicate. Everything you see in your browser is hosted on Shopify, so servers should't be an issue. But thanks for letting me know.

Yeah as I mentioned in the newsletter - beating agencies won't be realistic and it should't be the objective. But if you can at least offer some additional service that people don't get at the big stock agencies, then maybe you can start attracting some returning customers.
