The potential next phenomenon to swarm over the iPhone photosphere, Cinemagram (cinemagr.am) fuses still photography with moving video to create a moving photo, or a partially still video…or whatever you want to call it. Either way, being able to animate a photo you’ve taken is really very clever, and it gives photographs posted online an extra dimension, literally.
Cinemagram is a 5-star rated app available on the Appstore for $1.99 and allows users to
isolate a specific part of a photograph, such as the tail on a giraffe, or a billboard in Times Square, and animate it so that the isolated section moves, whilst the remainder of the image remains still. Experienced and non-experienced photoshoppers alike will also be able to filter colours and styles before sharing their hybrid creation with the online art-loving public. Magnifique.
