Inside the New PixTeller

We made it! → After about 2 years, all the hard work and sacrifice paid off: the new version of PixTeller is here.

In 2014 we launched the first version of PixTeller, which was a simple and limited Editor made with CSS and JQuery for Posters and Quotes Images / only 605 width.

The lack of options and functionality of the Editor didn't stop people to visit and join our community, whilst creating beautiful quote pictures inspired by their real life experiences or dreams and wishes. We were amazed by the large number of people around the globe who were using our design tool (for free), creating thousands of images every day.

Just like "top students", we learned from our users and gathered as much information as we could in order to build a better community for them. By interacting with our users, we find out how they feel and what they expect from our service and how we can improve our service development.

I think it's pretty clear that the feedback we got from our users has been crucial in developing the PixTeller you use today!

Now let's see what we kept and what improvements have been made to the new PixTeller version.

So, what have we kept from the old PixTeller?

  • We first thought of keeping all the important data of our users, but because things on the new PixTeller platform are significantly different, we only managed to keep our users basic information and their public designs marked as hot by other PixTeller users.
  • It's true that some of our users weren't happy that the designs they made on the old platform have been deleted (private / public, but not marked as hot), even though they were advised to download them in time.
  • We preserved the simplicity (easy-to-use function) and made great improvements to our design processes.

What has changed?
