Your Photos. Your Music. Your Story.
Tell your story in a fun, novel way with Glimpses and turn your photos into stunning Still Motion videos.

Glimpses has been previously featured on the Mac App Store as a "Best New App".

In Still Motion videos, photos are typically shown for not much longer than the fraction of a second.
Glimpses lets you create these videos in a matter of seconds.

- Import your photos from your Photos library, hard drive, Flickr or Instagram.
- Arrange your photos manually, by date or color for a nice gradient effect.
- Make your video sing by importing a soundtrack.
- Select the parts of the soundtrack you like.
- Glimpses then turns your photos into a high-quality video with a resolution of up to 4K.

+ Face Detection
Glimpses analyses your photos for faces and then places the photos accordingly in your video as to not lose any important details.
+ Soundtrack Selection
You can add as many songs to your video and reorder them as you like. Glimpses features an easy-to-use sound wave that lets you select the part of a song you like.
+ Auto-Fade
If your soundtrack is too long, Glimpses fades out your soundtrack automatically at the end
+ Auto-Timing
Let Glimpses choose the duration for your photos based on the duration of your soundtrack.
+ Automatic Resolution
Glimpses can automatically detect the perfect resolution for your video based on the smallest photo.
Of course, you can also choose to select a resolution yourself - from 240p to 4K.

Ratings and Reviews

Needs more umph


I was looking for something to create on my Mac like flip o gram and was happy that I came across this, but a little disappointed. I suggest a feature to choose the portion of the music to clip and add, an option to make it a little longer as well as slower or faster, and to make a title as well as ending. Then it would be perfect. Otherwise, it’s just ok

It’s fun and the developer is responsive


I was able, quickly, to create several movies as gifts for people.

It’s simple to use: drag images from Finder or import from Flickr or Instagram; pick a sound track from Finder; pick the duration between images and click create. You can also sort the images so they appear in a different order.

I found a simple bug and the developer contacted me within the same day.

I have no complaints and my friends are happy with the movies I made for them.

I want my money back- Totally misleading


No music and you only can pick a 9 second "movie." I loaded in lots of photos for a presentation, no sound even though it says it is playing the music and the photos are compressed into 9 seconds max- so itf you have 9 photos- you'll get 1 second per photo- with no sound, any more photos than that- you can't even see what the photos are. MONEY BACK!!!!!!
