Ready for a New Kind of Photography?

I know, I know — a bold thing to say. I don't get excited about a lot of "new" stuff — but this, I tell you, is something completely different and mind blowing. It's called a Plotagraph and it will blow your mind. Better yet, anyone can do it and you can use any photo you've ever taken!

First, take a look at this image...

That image was made from a single still image using some new online software. It works on any computer, using any photo and is available at the Plotagraph Pro website. It's incredibly fun and simple. You simply upload one of your existing photos and tell the software the parts you want to stay static and the areas you want to organically move. You draw some basic paths of how you want the motion to look, then voila, you're done! You can then export it as a GIF, MOV, or MP4 file.

I've made about a dozen or so of these exctiing new images and started a new website just for them. Note that each image is an animated GIF, so it may take a moment to load until the photo starts to flow with the animation. If you're a long-time fan, you might notice that I've re-used some of my older, favorite photos. Awesome!

You can do anything with the software — make clouds in the sky move, a waterfall to flow, grass blow in the breeze, and make the hair on a hairy Icelandic horse flow like Owen Wilson's on a jog.

Plotagraph Pro is available now, and for a limited time you can SAVE $50 OFF on their website.
