    I really hope no one leaves negative comments about the scroll jacking on this site. It's a fantastic design and the 'scroll jacking' really enhanced the websites experience.

      I disagree that the scroll effect enhances anything (I skipped ahead three sections by accident and was forced to watch the page pass me by before I could stop it), but I'm not going to let that get int he way of enjoying the rest of the site.

      Aesthetically it is gorgeous (there is so much to love about the site!), but the scrolljacking did not enhance the site, it detracted from it.

      People usually say bad thing about it, but I couldn't help but felt so delighted navigating down. Should I leave negative comment just because it's scroll jacking??

        "I couldn't help but felt so delighted navigating down"

        You were actually thinking that? C'mon dude - I call BS

      Maybe for you. But sites that scrolljack never test across enough browsers/devices/scroll settings. On a Mac with Firefox and a Logitech mouse it absolutely detracted from the experience. I had to scroll a long way to get between sections.

      If it worked well for you then chances are you just happened to one of the use cases they tested for.

      I think it is natural to feel delighted as a first time user, but repeated visitors that know where things are on the page will be annoyed by any mechanism that slows down their scrolling experience

        When I got to the bottom and then tried to scroll up, it reminded me of hitting a mud patch in mario cart. The site is beautiful, it really is, but the mandatory slow down... Still, its a gorgeous site.

      It's less that scroll-jacking is inherently always bad (though it is), it's more that it's stuttering and janky. Impressive as a demo; not that great for production.

      I was about to complain about scroll-jacking. Have to disagree with you - it doesn't enhance the experience. At least for me.

    Design actually kinda reminds me of Spotify. Love it!

    I love it in general - beautiful design and animated transitions, really well done! I also like the idea. The only thing I don't like is scroll jacking..It might be nice for a first time user but repeat visitors (or anyone that learned where things are on a page) won't like it, I think.

    I like the idea of kinda live design, it has fresh look on colours. And the adaptive version looks smooth.

    Nice site and UX, scrolljacking aside. Not sure what's to prevent someone from going straight to the person for a photo rather than purchasing credits. I'm guessing they're still trying to work that out themselves.

    Loving the landing page and its awesome animations! I'm just wondering if all those bubbly transitions becomes too much when using the platform on a daily basis?

    I am really liking this site. Imho all aspects of the experience were very carefully used. No overused animations, well balanced font sizes. Its just well crafted! Very inspiring!

    I love this idea. There's some cool opportunities with influencers to grab some revenue from the platform. The site is gorgeous as well!

    This is an awesome tool. That I'm actually going to use.

    At first I was a little confused with the headline for some reason, not sure why. Maybe just, 'Buy real life Instagram photos', as that's what you do, right?

    why does resizing the viewport refresh the entire page?

    Have anyone tried it or are we just debating about design here?:) Would be nice to use these pictures on website or in an app. I couldn't find what's their pricing policy...

    who actually designed and built this website? would love to see more of their work!
