An abbreviation for “world wide web,” the primary purpose of www was to distinguish between the different servers. For most internet users, there’s a good chance you don’t know what that means (and realistically, you don’t have to). However, for a little background, we’ll cover it here.
A cinemagraph can best be described as a high quality gif or video that is very smoothly looped. The first cinemagraphs were created in the gif format out of practicality for sharing online, but because of the limitations of the gif format, some were often employed in the HTML5 video format to display at a much higher quality and smaller file sizes. Cinemagraphs are not tied to any one file format but the way in which they’re displayed determines which format is best suited for them. Some of the best cinemagraphs capture the entire essence of a scene, or they isolate a movement within a larger scene. These cinemagraphs range from landscapes and nature scenes to street photography, sometimes augmented by only the slightest bit of motion, and at other times completely wrapped up by it. Here at Graydient Creative, we love cinemagraphs! Here is how we create them.
