Why can't I see the interactive content?
This site makes extensive use of Adobe Flash. Most computers already have Flash installed and this is upgraded automatically as new versions are released by Adobe. If this does not happen on your computer then you can download the latest free Flash plug-in for your web browser to see all the interactive content.
It is also highly recommended (but not essential) that javascript is turned on when you access this site.
Why doesn't CELLpics work on my iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad?
The interactive content on this website is delivered to your computer or device using Adobe Flash technology. This is supported by all desktop and laptop computers by the use of a free plug-in. Flash is also available on many mobile devices (phones and tablets). Unfortunately Apple does not allow the use of the Flash plug-in on the iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad and this means that CELLpics interactive content (along with Flash content on many other websites) is not playable on those devices.
CELLpics is currently unable to offer the interactive content in a form suitable for iPhone and iPad.
If Flash is not active on your device you will see this image. Clicking on it will take you to a page where you can get the latest plugin or App for your mobile device (*if available*)
No Flash

Why does the content take a long time to download?
The interactive content on this website is best experienced with a broadband internet connection.
If you are using a dial-up connection or sharing a broadband connection with many other users then download speeds will inevitably be much slower.
Why do I get annoying warnings about pop-ups?
Some web browsers block pop-ups as a precaution because they can cause problems on your computer. However because of the way CELLpics works some links will cause a new window to be created with the linked-to site in it. This can trigger a pop-up warning. Click on the yellow warning for more options and choose 'Always Allow Pop-ups from This Site'. It is perfectly safe to allow pop-ups on the CELLpics site and doing so will remove those warnings.
