Popims Animator: The Right Tool for the Job?

Limited features, but less guesswork

All right then, I've hit Ctrl-A and gone into the manual alignment tool. As you can see, the images are superimposed and slightly transparent so that I am able to line them up the way I want. Well, I can line them up as I like as long as that doesn't involve rotating one of the images slightly. This tool only allows for movement and cropping, just like the automatic alignment earlier.

I should also note that while you are in the alignment tool, whether automatic or manual, you cannot switch over to a different program. Every time I wanted to switch over to Word to write a portion of this review, for example, I had to fully close out of the alignment tool.

Well looks like Popims is not the way to go... Is SmartMorph the BEST free morpher out there? How about if you were willing to pay - say up to $50 when what should be best?

PC-only?! Can't be much of a design program then. ;-) (Great review, Kirk!)

Well Jay, you are right though it's been pointed out to me that lotsa Mac users 'round here run Windows using Boot Camp. To those people I say: find a different morphing program. Even if you can use this, you really don't want to. Blech.

Apparently you don't realize that most of the Mac users on this sit, run Windows under Boot Camp.

I hadn't thought of that, thanks. Most of the Mac users I know personally have no desire to run Windows at all. :)
