I found this infographic by the Photoshoplady through a link on facebook. There are some pretty cool facts buried in here.
Among the not so cool facts are the ones about piracy. I am glad to be part of the 42% of people who use legitimately licensed photoshop. I am a little irritated that 58% of photoshop users are able to do so because I, and others like me, pay for the product when they don't.
You know how people sometimes say that jazz is the only truly American art form? Animated GIFs are like the jazz of the internet: they could only exist, and be created and appreciated, online. That said, PopTart Cat is not exactly on par with Thelonious Monk. But photographer Jamie Beck and motion graphics artist Kevin Burg may have finally found a way to elevate the animated GIF to a level approaching fine art, with their "cinemagraphs" -- elegant, subtly animated creations that are "something more than a photo but less than a video."
