When you want to show your awesome photos from your recent vacation but there are just too many, you can either sort through them and heavy-heartedly decide which ones to toss aside...

... or you show them all - with a Still Motion Video.

Glimpses creates Still Motion Videos.

Show and share your video in just a few clicks.

Import photos from your Photos library, your hard drive, Flickr or Instagram,

add one or more soundtracks and you’re done.

Glimpses figures out the rest for you - if and when to fade out the soundtrack,

how to position photos so faces aren’t out-of-frame,

or what resolution your video should be in.

It’s just that easy.

Simple. Yet Powerful.

While Glimpses is designed for ease of use,

it’s you who has control.

- Pick your favorite part of a soundtrack and loop it;

- order your photos randomly, by date, title

or color for a nice, subtle gradient effect;

- eliminate pillar- and letter boxes around your photos or show them in full...

...and more!

A fun, novel way to tell your story.

Still Motion Videos show photos in rapid succession, usually for the fraction of a second.

Mix that with a soundtrack, and you can make your video action-packed and powerful

or mellow and soothing.

Or both.
