Plotagraph category

You may have noticed that there is a plotagraph category shown over all the posts that include a plotagraph. And if you want to see all of them, scroll down to the bottom of the page, where you can find a Photos by location dropdown menu.

Just choose it and select Plotagraph under Articles.

Enjoying the Dubai fountain

dubai fountain plotagraph pro screenshotPlotagraphs look great with clouds, but one can animate much more with it. On this photo, of the Dubai fountain in Dubai, I animated the fountain and the surrounding water. It’s subtle, but it does make the photo stand out a bit. Don’t you think?

And for those curious, I’m including a screenshot of the final edit in Plotagraph pro, so you can see all the animation points I needed to add to the photo, to get it from static to this animation.

Points, points and more points

sunset plotagraph, Plotagraphy ProIt’s quite fun to edit photos with Plotagraph Pro. It really reminds me of those newspapers in Harry Potter movies. The little bit of movement really changes how a photo looks.

And it’s not even that hard. Just check out the guide I posted few days ago. I will also do a video version, but that will be later, as I caught a bit of a cold, and my voice is quite horrible right now. And of course, a review is also in the works.

To the side you can see a screenshot of how this photo looked like when I finished editing it into a plotagraph. It all just about adding animation points. And many of them :)

I think this is one of the photos that really fits for a plotagraph. Almost everything here normally moves, so adding the movement back just ads to the overall look of it.

Contrast in videos

Lucerne waves in Plotagraphy ProI noticed that when I share plotagraphs as mp4 videos, they look differently depending on where I play them.

For instance, on Instagram or in Opera browser, they have much more contrast, while in my media player or in Edge, they look as they should. I tried to look if one can embed the color profile as in images, but no luck finding a way. Any of you maybe know one? For now I started to lower the contrast a little in the source images, directly in Plotagraph Pro, but thats not really a great solution.

I just love how the motion in the waves worked out. It just a perfect spot for adding movement into the photos. What do you think?

Trying out Plotagraph Pro

For the last few days I have been experimenting with the Plotagraph Pro. I wanted to try it earlier, but I did not want to pay for a full year without trying it out first. And since they introduced a monthly plan recently, I thought I will give it a try.

I have to say, I’m enjoying it quite a lot. It’s quite fun to add a bit of movement to a photo. It makes it look quite mesmerizing in a way. I already edited quite a few, and I still want to try it on more photos, so I will share with you some in the following days and weeks.

Please note, I’m sharing the plotagraphs as looping mp4 videos, not as gifs. The reason is that I can get a much smaller file (10-20 times smaller) and of a comparable or higher quality with MP4 than with a GIF. So if you are on mobile, or are using an older browser, it may be that you will see a static image, instead of the motion. I’m looking into how to make it work on all browsers, but have not found a way yet.

Moving pink sunset

This is the fist ploatagraph I was happy with. The subject really lends it self for a bit of motion. The movement in the sky and the reflection in the puddle really pull you into the photo. I tried to leave it quite subtle, so it looks still quite realistic, even with a bit faster movement that there would be. I do hope you like it :)

Also for those curious, this is a 10 second video, 5times 2 second loop, with a resolution of 1200×798. And it is only 600kb big :)
