In the age of apps, there is never enough photo editing selections in the Google Play store. As days go by, they only get more and more creative. Jellify: Living Photos & Funny Effects app lets you not only snap photos with your device, but interact with them as well. Here is the app’s full description:
Wouldn’t it be great if you could breathe life into your pictures and watch them move just like in reality? Jellify app makes it easily possible:
• Choose an existing picture or take a new photo
• Touch and drag the parts of the image you want to see in motion, or use the automatic face detection feature
• After that, shake or tilt your device and watch the image come alive
• Deform the image by magnifying selected areas
• Choose from different movement patterns and save or share funny animations in GIF format
Sharing of GIF animations might not work on certain social networks, because of the lack of GIF support on their side.
To begin animating an image, open the app and tap New. Tap the orange circle and choose to take a picture or select one from your photo library. Next, crop the image to your liking. The app will then display a guide about how the controls work for Jellify before you begin manipulating the photo. Simply touch and drag any part of the image to create movement in any direction. After defining the moving areas, shake or tilt your device and watch it come to life.
Various changes can be made with buttons located on the screen, including the scale and looseness of the moving areas. The level of jelly expansion past the edges of the frame can also be changed for a 3D kind of effect. The app also mentions it will detect human faces and make them move automatically, though it is mentioned this feature isn’t always available. Reverse all changes with a simple on-screen undo button to revert the photo to its original form. After the photo is manipulated, you can save it as a gif and even share it via social media, email, etc. The app comes free with ad-support and is delight to use. It was fun experimenting with all of the things that could be done and is the first app of its kind that I have used with a gif exporting ability. Very clever and very amusing.
Jellify: Living Photos & Funny Effects is an entertaining app that is also a great and easy way to make your own gifs. The app is available now for free on Google Play.
