Now it's time for some fun stuff! Lately i've been playing with an awesome tool called Plotagraph Pro!
I've only had my hands on this application for about a solid 24 hours at the time of writing this, but i'm already in LOVE! It lets you take your still images and create a motion image, or "cinemagraph". Quickly, and easily animate your photos to create something captivating and truly is the future of advertising, marketing, and social media content! In the day and age of everyone having an incredible camera, it takes something special to make a viewer stop and take in your product...here's where Plotagraph comes in!
"More people than ever are getting their entertainment and information from their mobile devices. This provides opportunities and challenges for both marketers and companies trying to get their information out in a relevant way without being drown out by all of the competition. When creating a campaign its also important to know what platform and size the content will be viewed. Images that are on small screens need to have more movement than content that is shown on a large billboard. Studies show that people not only respond better to Dynamic Content but also retain information and learn better through moving images. The Plotagraph® Team not only creates top notch artistic content but we are also pros at knowing the proper speed and file exports for the appropriate platform. In the past year All of the major social media platforms now accept either animated gifs or looping videos. No matter what website or social media platform we have the perfect export at the best compression for you. It's exciting to think about the future of marketing, advertising and social media. We are happy to do our part in helping to make it more Dynamic."
Check out a few of the images i've created in just a few minutes each! Personally I can't wait to spend more time with the application and become a master with it!
