An App That Turns Photos Into Animated GIFs

If you've ever wanted to create GIFs on the fly with your smartphone, but found complexity of existing GIF creation programs like Cinemagraphs daunting, then you have to check out Flixel.

Flixel lets you decide which portion of the frame you want to be animated, then it records frames to play back as a GIF, while the rest of the photo remains still.

The result is a pretty cool bit of motion applied to your photos, and makes for some interesting, albeit twitchy, imagery. You can see a short video of Flixel in action, and many more GIFs created with the app, at the links below.

It does not turn photos into animated GIFs, it turns small video snippets into animated GIFs, just with some parts remaining static.

I swear, titles on Neatorama are starting to become as misleading as tabloids.

Well technically Flixel takes a series of photos of whatever section of the frame you want animated, then puts them together in GIF form. It doesn't shoot as video, hence the choppy/twitchy nature of the animated section. So, title is not misleading after all, bran the bongo clown.
