Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA

OTTAWA, July 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Designed for photographers, artists, and digital marketers, PhotoMirage™ is an all-new desktop app for Windows that delivers high-resolution, animated photos that move, intrigue, and inspire viewers. Whether you are looking for a new outlet to express your creative vision, want to boost social engagement, or simply wish to stand out from the crowd, PhotoMirage makes it quick, easy, and affordable to transform a single image into a high-resolution photo animation.

“Without question, visual content is king. With an incredible number of photos on the web and social media, it’s never been harder to capture and keep your audience’s attention,” said Chris Pierce, Senior Product Manager of the Photo and Digital Arts lineup at Corel. “Photographers and marketers have started to explore animated photographs as a new way to stand out online; but typically, the choice has been either time-consuming and overly complicated video-based processes or potentially expensive photo-based options. We see an opportunity to disrupt this space with PhotoMirage, finally bringing mesmerizing and stunning animated photographs within anyone’s reach.”

PhotoMirage is changing the landscape of visual communication by making it fast and affordable to create moving images that lure audiences and convey emotion in an exciting way.
