So we have all heard of and love Instagram, with many of us using it. It is an amazing photo editing and sharing tool that lets you show off your photos with the fun addition of filter to add a vintage look.

Now all of a sudden there is a new creative App on the market, which gives you the ability to take your creativity that one step further.

Cinemagram is a new App, which at the moment is only available on the Apple App market. Don’t worry though it has been confirmed that the developers are working on an Android version.

What Cinemagram does is it gives a user the ability to turn a stand alone photo into an animated GIF. Basically it is a hybrid between photo and video.

How does it work?

So how does Cinemagram work? Well all you have to do is take a short 2-3 second video clip. Then by using the tools provided just mask an area that you want animated. By using the filters that are provided you are able to give the animated GIF a vintage look before being able to share it to the world, whether by Facebook, Twitter or Tumbler. Is this just the precursor to the next set of Apps like Socialcam and Viddy? Let’s see what takes off.
