Description

Featured on the Mac App Store as a "Best New App"

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

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.

Customer Reviews

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.
