Captivate With A Cinemagraph:

Make a Cinemagraph in Photoshop

Class Description

Cinemagraphs are a video with a looping, repetitive movement.

They are similar to gifs, but instead of the entire photo moving, only select pieces move.

It gives the viewer the illusion of watching a video with only one element moving while looping like a gif creating a dynamic and interesting video.
