Brand new PhotoDirector 9 offers a bunch of new opportunities for creativity, including the ability to turn videos into animated GIFs, create Motion Stills, and blend photos together to craft unique effects.
PhotoDirector 9 also introduces a 360° Photo Editor which allows you to edit 360° photos in the easiest way possible. Let’s take a peek at these new features!

Create Your Own Little Planet
Turn your 360° photos into a world of their own in just a few quick clicks with the new Little Planet feature. It’s easier than you thought to own a planet.
Now you can take the perfect picture from your videos. With just a click you can capture a razor-sharp still image that you can use to create your own perfect timelapse, group photo, multi-exposure or layered image. In PhotoDirector 9, we’ve added 2 new modes: “Create Animated GIF File” and “Create Motion Stills”, which can transform videos into animated photos.

Motion Stills are an amazingly creative twist on standard photographs. Brush over sections of a video clip to retain movement in that area only. Other parts appear frozen in time!
