Fed up with dumping reams of photos onto photo sharing sites? So are we.

So why not tell a story instead? Bring people along for the ride, inspire them; give them an experience.

Pixxcell is a time travelling atlas of human curiosity (the world's first, we think). We've built it so anyone can tell stories about anywhere in the world.

Stories matter. They make us human. We remember life's moments using time and place. This is how we're wired, how the deep things sink in. It's how our memory works.

Whether you're a traveller, travel blogger, photographer (or just have a story you want to tell) Pixxcell will make your story look awesome.

Build beautiful stories of the places you've been and tell the world about them. Show off your travels, your lives, your family and places and things that interest you; from this day forward and going back to day dot.

You can use your own images and a range of others brought in from places like Flickr or Getty Images (the world's largest image library). Plus, if you have your own blog or website, you can embed your story map onto any page to show off your work.

And then there's the BIG story

The story of life on earth- the one that includes all of us. Every image you make public contributes to the central world archive. It's a bit like a time machine- a photo diary of planet earth; zoom into any area of the world and move back and forwards through time to see how places have changed throughout the years.

Unlike other sites Pixxcell doesn't stop at photography- we need to go way further back than that to see how a place has changed over time. We display artwork too- enabling you see a place from the very earliest records in existence.

So go on...

...go somewhere you normally wouldn't go. Find a place you didn't know existed. Time travel and go back to see what the world was like hundreds of years ago, trace the back-story of where you were born. Explore the world through the eyes of others. Discover places that amaze you, are strikingly beautiful or are part of world history.
