Stop the World, I Want to Get…Away!

Land Rover on "Frozen" Congress Ave.We’ve all had those days when we wish we could magically freeze all the activity around us – instantly remove all obstacles in our path – just for long enough to allow a quick and silent getaway, a hassle-free journey to the destination of our choosing…

Obviously, I don’t have any such magical solution – but I can provide a rather magical glimpse of that exact scenario! I’ve grabbed a couple of “Cinemagraph-like” Cinegifs from the archives of our founder and inventor, Doug Richardson, that seem to “freeze” everything that threatens to get in the way, impede progress, or slow down a well-deserved escape from the mundane and boring. LAnd Rover on "Frozen" Loop 360 BridgeSeems appropriate for a Friday, somehow!

The Cinegif above, of the vehicle on Congress Avenue, is a only 427 Kilobytes, and the Cinegif at left, of the vehicle on the Loop 360 Bridge, is only 64 Kilobytes! File sizes that small mean instant-open, instant-play capability in emails, blogs, websites, power point, digital signage and text messages!

Check out “Gif of the Day” – We hope it’s a Hit!

We’re understandably excited about the current resurgence of popularity that the animated .gif is experiencing. Whether it’s the high-end “Cinemagraph“, or the edgier, more familiar animated .gif that’s been in use for a while – we’re all for promoting the medium as a whole. With that in mind, we’ve launched our “Gif of the Day” site. Every day we’ll be posting a new animated .gif, selected from a variety of different sources. Some will be ours, some will be from our friends who also create animated .gifs, and some may even be from you, if you send us your work to post! (we will give you full credit)  So put it on your “to do” list – go to and check it out. Just think of it as our “Gif” to you…we’re hoping it will be a hit.

Round Rock Express Player Gets a Hit

Speaking of “Hits” – this is a “Cinemagraph”-style animated .gif that Cinegif inventor and founder Doug Richardson created. Even at 600 pixels wide, and manipulated to freeze all motion but the batter hitting and running to first base, the file size of this Cinegif is only 439 Kb! Yes that’s Kilobytes! That means a file small enough to be extremely portable, that will open and play instantly in email, on web pages, banner ads or in blogs!
