A simple and effective way to bring your animal photography to life is to create an animation. We’ve been experimenting with stitching short collections together to turn static moments into compelling micro-narratives.
There are many free online tools that convert images into animations. We’ve found gifmaker.me particularly handy as a way to upload and compose images with basic size, speed and exporting options. As a general rule of thumb between 10 & 30 images is a good number and 350 milliseconds per image gives a satisfying speed. Exporting your animation as a GIF is normally effective, however if you wish to post your animal stories on Instagram then an MP4 format is recommended.
