Transform 2D images into 3D animations

PhotoAnim is a free tool which allows 2D images to be converted to 3D animations, then shared with others.

This process can be surprisingly simple. After creating a new project, we clicked File > Import to import a PNG graphic of a cartoon fish, Animation > Initialize > 3D from Front Image View, and after a few seconds our object was converted to 3D and displayed in a preview window. Check "Symmetry" and the fish was ready for use elsewhere.

You're not restricted to working with cartoons or individual objects. It's also possible to take a photograph and animate that, perhaps panning around in a cityscape to give a sense of depth.

There are powerful and professional tools to morph or warp images, even create skeletal animations on multiple regions within a picture.

You're able to customise your work by editing or correcting images, extracting subjects from the background, maybe importing 3D objects in .OBJ or .3DS formats.

Once you've finished then you can also export your work as 3D objects, maybe videos, or even share them online at (check out that site for some great examples of what the program can do).

Version 2.11 fixes "publishing PhotoAnim animations/videos to"


PhotoAnim has some very powerful features, but a cluttered interface means it can take a while to find them. Take the time to read the documentation and watch the tutorials, though, and you'll soon be producing high quality, professional animations.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
