81d1fd17-165a-4c35-a98b-e5b4fed42f94.jpegWhat if there was a new, innovative way to rediscover moments hidden in your memories and transform them into one-of-a-kind photo books, embellished with unique digital art created from the places central to your story? That’s the concept at the heart of a groundbreaking technology start-up called MixPlaces.

As the web’s freshest, most inventive hub for memory keeping, MixPlaces firmly believes that every photo tells a story. Their game-changing approach to photo books combines cutting-edge technology with artistic design to create personalized photo albums in minutes.

Their automated incorporation of custom-made designs, from GPS-accurate street maps to data-driven star maps, allow you not only to store your memories in a sleek, high-quality book, but also to help you visualize your memories in a never-before-seen way in the realm of photo books.

The World’s First Market-Disrupting Photo Book App

With a market-disrupting app and an accompanying web-based photo book editor, MixPlaces is making substantial waves in an industry that has been resistant to change. But what’s their secret?

In a word, metadata.

Their photo books surpass traditional albums by utilizing metadata hidden in your images. A proprietary algorithm scans your photos in mere seconds, identifying the date and place where your photos were taken.

This information is then used to incorporate a wide range of personalized artwork into your photo book, including custom star maps, street maps, weather maps, and coordinates art, among others.

MixPlaces is revolutionizing the photo book industry by leveraging the metadata hidden within your photos, transforming them into detailed narratives of pivotal life moments like weddings, family gatherings, and child milestones.

Capitalizing on this untapped information, it transforms each image's associated date and location into a vivid story, turning a simple wedding album into another stroll down the aisle or a baby book into a nostalgic journey.

This innovative approach brings to life your most cherished memories, whether it's a tale of your relationships, anniversaries, world trips, or your newborn's growth. MixPlaces offers an unprecedented way to keep track and relive these poignant moments, redefining what a photo book can be.

Exploring Photo Book Details that Make a Difference

What sets MixPlaces apart from traditional photo albums or inexpensive sleeved binders is more than just the quality of the final product. After all, if you want a $350 leather-bound book of pictures, you can find that anywhere.

But this startup is giving people the opportunity to relive their wedding day, summer vacations, holiday dinners, family get-togethers, and more. You can walk through your son or daughter’s precious milestones, or recreate your trip across Europe, all with the click of a few buttons, and all within minutes.

Transforming Memories Into Photo Books With Metadata

For example, using their new app, which is available on both Android and iOS, consumers can upload images and watch as the proprietary algorithm seamlessly processes the image data.

In minutes it will organize the photos — by place for a Places Book or by date for a Chronological Book (more on that in a moment) — while also integrating gorgeous artwork throughout the album.

The best part is, MixPlaces app makes all of this possible in minutes, doing all of the work for you.

Making 1s and 0s Into Something Beautiful

MixPlaces sets itself apart from the rest because, plain and simple, this isn’t your grandma’s photo album. They take your most special memories, the magic-like advances of technology, an eye for graphic design, and stick them all in a blender.

You know when you look back to a picture and think, what the heck is up with my hair? Well, MixPlaces has the answer. You were trekking through a rainforest, did you really think the humidity would spare your hair?

With MixPlaces' weather maps incorporated to your photo books, you’ll be able to relive your most cherished memories down to the degree.

Remember the daily walks from your hotel room or Airbnb to the lovely hidden bistro you found while traveling through Europe? With MixPlaces street maps, you’ll never forget those little streets and alleys ever again.

These artworks, that come at no additional cost, are what’s going to set your photo book apart from all the others. It’s also what sets MixPlaces apart as a truly one-of-a-kind tech startup.
