Let’s face it – unless you’re a skilled, professional photographer, still images are becoming rather passé, especially with the rise of the GIF. Thankfully, there is now software available that can transform your boring, static JPEG images into the boundless fun that are GIFs. This web application, named Plotagraph Pro, can animate any still image JPEG file into a looping GIF or video file, without the pesky or annoying need to capture it at multiple frames. Utilizing patent-pending imaging algorithms, Plotagraph Pro is an easy and seamless way to completely transform your JPEG images and export them as the file of your choice: GIF, MP4 or MOV.
Created by artist and photographer Troy Plota, Plotagraph Pro boasts a simple interface and is the fastest method of turning still images into GIFs. “Plotagraphs are free from the constraints of video, which makes billions of images available to bring to life at a fraction of the price of any other process,” the website notes. Brands like Airbnb, Chevrolet and Coke are already flocking to Plotagraph Pro for its ease of use and potential. The software is available to limited members of the public as a pre-release beta version. Those interested can sign up for a full year of access and 10GB of online storage at an introductory price of $300 when it goes live later this year. Check out some of Plotagraph Pro’s magic below.
