We are taking a quick pause from Photokina to bring you a very quick tutorial by Photoshop expert Howard Pinsky where he demonstrates how to create a really simply Cinemagraph in this under a minute using Photoshop.
Cinemagraphs are a combination of stills and videos – think about them as moving images – most of the image is frozen like a still image however a specific part has motion. Cinemagraphs are usually saved as GIF files and displayed online as unique artistic looking media. In recent years this field evolved and you can find more and more Cinemagraph artists (you can check out some interesting ones on Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg website).
