A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
Snape. Malfoy. Hogwarts. Horcrux.
If none of those words make any sense to you, you’re not a Harry Potter fan.
The rest of you know that in the Wizarding World, people in photographs don’t stand still. They move, wave at you, wander out of the frame for a cup of tea…
In honor of the new Harry Potter movie (eeeeee! we can’t wait!) we’re teaching you how to make your own moving pictures.
It’s so easy, even Muggles can do it!
p.s. We just snatched up the much anticipated Eye-Fi PRO Wireless Memory Card for the Photojojo Shop. Hooray for RAW uploads!
Um… Did That Picture Just Move?
Turns out they can! And you don’t even need a special potion to do it.
All you have to do is take a short video, loop it, and play it in a digital frame.
Why on earth didn’t we think of this sooner?!

What You’ll Need
*Mac users may find that, in defiance of all logic, .mov and .avi files have the same names but are formatted differently for Macs and PCs. Conversion software like Prism should fix the problem.
Happy? Or Creeeeeepy?
Moving pictures can be happy, with smiling, waving, jolly people prancing about.
Or they can be creepy, changing just enough to make the person watching unsure whether it’s moving or not.
So what do you say? Smiley happy time, or creepy Scooby-Doo-style portrait with moving eyes?
