Have you ever wondered how people do those motion photos? Those types of motion photos are .GIF files. They have been around for a long time, but most everyday computer users do not know how to make them. Well thanks to the wonderful folks over at Pearl Mountain Technology you can now makes those at home with your Mac.
It's really simple. First you need to purchase the app on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/picgif/id784260229?ls=1&mt=12
Here are the photos I used.
Once you get it all installed and you open the program, you will be asked to upload your photos. Just upload as many photos as you like. I wanted to do a motion photo so I picked photos that looked like they were in sequence. You can also change the frame display and do more of a slide show.
Then just make sure you have your photos in order, the settings the way you want them on the side, and add any text you want, and you are done!
Here is a really good video tutorial from Pearl Mountain
This is my finish product.
