Abstract

A digital still image is processed using motion-adding algorithms that are provided with an original still image and a set of motionizing parameters. Output of the motion-adding algorithms include a motionized digital image suitable for display by any digital image display device. The motionized digital image may be used in place of a still image in any context that a still image would be used, for example, in an ebook, e-zine, digital graphic novel, website, picture or poster, or user interface.
