High Resolution Graphics: What You Need To Know For Your Shop Images

The ABC’s of high-pixel-density screens

Apple introduced the first high density screen with the release of the iPhone 4, with four times the resolution of standard screens. They named this screen the Retina Display to reflect that the individual dots on the screen (pixels) are no longer discernible to the naked eye, resulting in much sharper and more natural looking graphics and text. These high density displays are now common across mobile devices and are starting to appear on laptop and desktop screens. However the majority of images on the internet do not contain enough data to be able to display all of this additional detail, resulting in images that look just as blocky or blurry as they do on standard screens. This is a pity because high density graphics are a wonderful thing, and that’s why Storbie now supports high density graphics. (more…)

Goodbye Smallfish… Hello Storbie! Find out everything you need to know about our rebrand

Hi, Shane here, Smallfish Founder and CEO

Remember back in February when I sent a message out talking about what a monumental year 2015 was going to be? I mentioned some aggressive expansion plans for Smallfish and while I didn’t go into any further detail back then, I’m pleased to say that I can spill all the beans now. If you joined Smallfish post-February, well then you picked a good time! Everyone in the Smallfish team have been working extremely hard to take our product to the next stage of its life, build upon our platform to better it for our existing and future customers and further realise the overarching vision of Smallfish — the growth of a global network of shops and shop clusters that are intrinsically connected yet all unique. We are nearing a tremendously important milestone in our work. I’m excited to announce that very soon Smallfish will be formally transitioning our brand, our product, our company name and all of our efforts to Storbie. (more…)
