I stumbled upon a unique technique that left me mesmerized. Ever seen moving photos? Check out cinemagraphs! Creating a cinemagraph is not as simple as it may look. Some of them took entire day to make, but the results are breathtaking! Cinemagraph is a technique of blending the effects of images and videos. I found some very exciting, funny and extremely creative cinemagraphs here and decided to exhibit them for you guys.
Some of these cinemagraphs will take time to load, so be patient and watch each of them carefully, enjoy!

    #11 is awsome !!!

  • Nick says:

    @Rick, I had a similiar idea and did some research on which digital frames support the animated gif format on my blog recently: http://www.stillreel.com/?p=72

  • Rick says:

    I think they are beautiful and fascinating. Hannah’s idea of having them in digital photo frames on your desk or wall is a fantastic one.

  • Prana Lim says:

    can you make a tutorial for cinemagraph/gif ?

  • Corinne says:

    How do you make these? What file type is this….I want to learn! ;)

  • The Brew says:

    @ person: in #3 look at the window. As for #18, I waited at least 10 seconds and nothing happened. I don’t know what’s up with that.
    admin edit: try to refresh the page or view it in another browser (in some browsers it doesn’t “play” some times)

    [...] the photo stays just what it is – a still photo. Apparently it takes lots of time to create them. Check out this gallery and see if I can change your opinion [...]

  • Fraser says:

    Can you please teach me? This is beautiful. Would be very useful technique used for point and click computers such as Machinarium

  • Hannah says:

    It would be cool to have one of these in a digital picture frame on your wall. It would be kind of like Harry Potter.

  • Hakob says:

    can you make these your back ground and make them move?

  • Osman says:

    i gazed at number 7 for a long time, and than suddenly the guy freaked me out :P

  • kathy says:

    I love these!

  • V says:

    I like that they don’t look looped like .gif files do I really like #7 and #29

  • Care Bear says:

    I love these. Keep ‘em coming.
