Cinemagraphs the Easy Way - Create Superb 'Living Photos'

Visit Tutorial Page ( Report)
Want to make your posts on your favorite social sites stand out? Of course you do! Cinemagraphs do all the talking for you. They're not overly-busy videos, nor are they dull and boring flat photos. A great cross between a photo and a video. They are the happy medium. Today you're going to learn just how easy it is to create your very own cinemagraphs—at home—without having to fork out tons of cash for expensive monthly SaaS (Software as a Service) video editing products. The software showcased in this course is called FlickGraph. Cinemagraphs made my way don't involve Photoshop; I have used Photoshop in the past to create wonderful cinemagraphs, but the time it takes to make them is simply mind-boggling. But also just as mind-boggling is how you can easily create your own Cinemagraph masterpieces by using the very same inexpensive software I now use. No monthly recurring fees. Pay once, use it for life. No need to have expensive data going back and forth to the cloud; the software and files you create reside right on your computer. Don't worry about internet outages or slow speeds. Learning how to create Cinemagraphs can earn you some decent pocket money at best. At worst—spend hours of fun creating Cinemagraphs for the sheer joy of it! Video lectures have closed captioning (an aid to you due to my Lancashire, UK accent!) OK, interested? I bet you are! Let's get going ... Who is the target audience? This course is for those who wish to learn how to create Cinemagraphs quicky and affordably for use in their social posts and marketing efforts.
