Tumblr popularized gif culture. And Flixel wants a piece of the cake. But does Flixel offer a better way to make living photos?
Flixel serves up their own application, Cinemegraph, at around $100. It has an incredibly easy to use interface and even won an Apple Design Award this past June. You choose whether you want your moving images to be gifs or video.
Living photos have various applications including digital magazines, lookbooks, user interfaces and more.
But you can also make moving moving images using Adobe CS6.
A walk through the fountains:
The next image was made using Flixel. It works flawlessly on both desktop and mobile.
This image is a looping gif made with Adobe CS6.
I prefer exporting my hyper realistic, moving images as gifs. I don’t like Flixel’s embed feature as it displays their logo and link. And embedding videos using HTML5 do not work on mobile applications because autoplay features are disabled. Go team gif!
