Thank you for taking your time to visit this page.
This is only temporary until I find a suitable HD loop-video viewing platform for the website. Therefore, the cinemagraphs on this page are in GIF format – apology for the load and the choppy movements.
All of the finished cinemagraphs will be HD video files as they offer better quality, smoother motions, yet in smaller size compared to GIF files.
The different between cinemagraphs and the normal moving images (as GIF you usually see online) is that cinemagraphs are static images that contain one subtle and seamless motion. It is a great way to help your clients stand out, attract and engage users. Lots of big brands have incorporated cinemagraphs into their advertising and branding strategies over the last year. They are becoming ubiquitous. You certainly can spot them on almost every social media channels such as Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.
“People love cinemagraphs, advertisers love them, and they are a really great way of drawing attention to certain aspects of the photo,” Jim Squires said – director of market operations at Instagram.
Please have a look at some of my GIF-cinemagraphs below.
