Plotagraph is the new app created by professional photographer Troy Christopher Plota that now lets you animate your own world. It uses a single still image, allowing you to choose parts of the photo you want to animate which makes the image look as if it is moving. It creates beautiful lifelike scenery as a backdrop or it can create mesmerizing patterns. It works in a similar manner to a GIF, creating a loop of continuous movement that brings the photo to life.
Apps like Boomerang use a short video and isolate a portion of that video to create the image whereas Plotagraph does the opposite in that it take a still picture and creates movement.
Plotagraph offers the best of traditional, easy–to–use editing tools as well as advanced editing software that allow the user to determine the speed and direction of the movement in the photo. Once the photo is edited, the user has the option of sharing it on social media.
Christopher stated that the reason behind the app was to bring value back to photography in a time where video is taking over. It hopes to bring out a platform to allow artists to sell their work directly to customers through the site. The company has veered away from traditional advertising and rather uses social media platforms and using social media celebrities to promote the app.
Celebrities like Shaquille O'Neal and Alicia Keys are going mad over this app. Would you try it out?
