Popims Animator: The Right Tool for the Job?

But what about those bells and whistles?

Popims Animator doesn't tout itself as solely a morphing program, and it boasts a few other features such as extracting images from video, applying various basic filters and transparency, and adding text to animations. But honestly, there are better free programs out there for doing everything Popims Animator does.

At the very least, if you want to morph images together at no cost, I suggest downloading the supposedly obsolete SmartMorph instead, which you can get right here at TechRepublic.

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. :)
