4.5/5 (2)

We, guys from TemplateMonster team, love our work and we love you, our dear readers. And we never stop seeking for inspirational ideas that can do much good for you. With such an introduction I want to present you our new project, and hope that it will resonate with you. It’s a pack of free cinemagraphs, still photos with subtle motion, that you can use in your projects or blog posts, making them more emotional and appealing for the viewers.

Pick up any item you like, or the whole set of these beautiful .gifs, and they will convey the impression of your works more effectively than a usual jpg. Scroll down the post and let the magic begin.

Photos That Come to Life

As you know,

Cinemagraphs are still images spiced up with some moving elements.

This mix of photo and video effects gives a stunning result - nice living pictures. Such images are .gif files, with subtle motion that is not in focus (as usual), is repeated, and thus mesmerizing for the viewer. A well-done cinemagraph is interesting to look at, ‘cause any iterative movement has a high magnetic effect.

Cinemagraphs and gifs (like the ones you can see on imgur) are not the same, the first ones feature more refined nature and more clean execution. Still, cinemagraphs show the .gif quality of files, what differs them from average photos. When a photo is shot with a good camera in high resolution, the eventual result will be a sharp image. While converting video into a .gif format (as it's done in the process of cinemagraphs creation), the files are compressed, and it affects their quality. Anyway, cinemagraphs look quite well, and easily engage the audience. That’s not strange, 'cause people are more image than text oriented, and if the visuals on the site are something more then the usual photos or illustrations, the site effectiveness is higher. You can find a bit more about the hypnotic effect of cinemagraphs and wise tips on how the bloggers can benefit from them in the previous post of this series.

The Art of Creation

To create a cinemagraph you can use either iPhone, Android apps, or camera and Photoshop. The process of creation animated photographs on smartphone is fun and easy, but if you want to get a better result, you need a good camera, Photoshop and some time. In addition to the camera that can shoot video, you should take a tripod, decide on a scene that includes continuous motion. At first you shoot a short movie clip, divide it in frames and isolate the moving element in every frame, play the sequence and save for web. This technique was used while creating the cinemagraphs you see in this post. There are a lot of tutorials on the web illustrating the process in details, and you can try any to get attractive cinemagraphs.
