Parallax Effect – Turn your photos into videos

If you want to see something really cool in your photos I advise you to take a nice look at the Parallax Effect. This is a very easy way to turn your photos into surreal videos that will definitely draw more attention to your work.

Using Photoshop we can create something we call the Parallax effect or 2.5D cinema, and it is not at all difficult to do.

How to Create Parallax Effect

Unlike cinemagraphy which are videos that only part of them move. Plotting is a technique where photos have certain animated parts. This effect is very beautiful when done well and very effective in drawing people’s attention to a part of the photo.

In the video at the top of the page you will find a complete tutorial on how to make the effect using Photoshop, but it is possible to do the same effect using applications on your smartphone, they do not always give you a good control over what you need to do. And using Photoshop to do the effect will give you total control. 

This way we can create very interesting effects for our photos and turn photos into impressive videos. If you liked this video leave your comment and share on your social networks and you can see all the videos of the channel here
