We love cinemagraphs. It’s why we spent the last 3 years building the world’s easiest cinemagraph creation apps. While we’ve come a long way, we’re constantly looking for ways to improve our software and services so that photographers, videographers and digital marketers can be even more creative with their cinemagraph projects. Nothing makes us happier than to read comments from our community about cinemagraphs that used to take hours or days in complex photo-editing or special effects programs — now only taking minutes in Cinemagraph Pro.
While some Cinemagraph Pro users immediately export their work, many of our artists also upload their images to Flixel Cloud — our cinemagraph hosting and streaming service. Think of it as combination of YouTube for HD cinemagraphs and your own online cinemagraph portfolio. As an example, check out 500+ cinemagraphs that our 2014 featured artist Alexandre Miguel has uploaded to his Flixel account.
Sharing Cinemagraphs, Now as Easy as Creating Them
Once your cinemagraph is uploaded to your account, it’s super easy to share it on the web, on a WordPress blog (like this one), on Squarespace or pretty much anywhere. Every cinemagraph that’s uploaded to flixel.com has a unique embed code. Our embed code works just like a YouTube embed, but, it enables HD auto-loop and auto-play functions while making your cinemagraphs look fantastic on any device and in any browser.
Here’s how to embed a cinemagraph on a web site:
1. Go to the cinemagraph you want to embed on Flixel.com
2. In the bottom right corner click on “Embed”, and copy the code snippet.
3. Paste the iFrame code snippet into your web page editor. It’ll look something like this.
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://media.flixel.com/cinemagraph/ ms7tvnpr2amdmuwxe483?hd=false" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
4. You’re done. That’s all there is to it.
Online Cinemagraph Portfolio & Curated Cinemagraph Galleries
You can also use your account on flixel.com as your very own cinemagraph portfolio. Just share the link to your account page and your clients and friends will be able to see your cinemagraphs in glorious HD quality on any device and in any browser. We also love to feature your cinemagraphs in our galleries which have thousands of page views each day.
By uploading your cinemagraphs to your Flixel account, you also enable effective auto-loop and auto-play social sharing options for Twitter, Google+, Behance, & Tumblr. Behance is an integral part of the Adobe creative community and is the leading online platform to showcase & discover creative work. Recently, Behance added support for the Flixel iFrame which mean you can post your cinemagraphs to Behance in full HD resolution, avoiding the need to degrade your work to a poor-quality GIF.
We love what you create so upload your images to flixel.com and share our love of cinemagraphs with the world.
