Why to use Cinemagraphs on your websites

One of the latest trends in the web design is use of cinemagraphs. What are cinemagraphs? Cinemagraphs are moving pictures inserted to the webpage. It is an eye-catching graphical element that is constantly in motion thanks to the repeating sequence (loop). Practically it’s something between gif picture, photo and video. The most important is the fact that cinemagraphs attract the visitors attention and force them (at least for a little while) to pay attention.

It is because of the fact that people intuitively prefer things that are in motion. As well as because they don’t visit too many websites where cinemagraphs are implemented thus can still catch more attention.
