Place photos side by side in the Motionbox app

A picture is worth a thousand words, and nowhere is that more true than when comparing two photos side-by-side. Whether it's to compare the before and after of a home renovation project, to show the dramatic difference a new haircut can make, or to reveal the subtle changes that happen to a person over the course of a year, side-by-side photos are always compelling. Looking at two photos side-by-side can also be a great way to learn about composition, lighting, and other technical aspects of photography. By seeing how two different photographers approached the same subject, you can start to develop your own style and aesthetics. So next time you're looking at a photo, ask yourself: could this be even more powerful if I saw it next to another photo?

Motionbox helped me create short clips of longer videos that were perfect for sharing as social media posts for my client's campaign. The built-in subtitle feature and progressbar worked great. I even used the subtitle feature to quickly generate copy from the longer videos so that I could also create blog posts! It saved me so much time. If I could use Motionbox to create top-notch content for my client who is a Super Bowl champion, then I'd say it's a superb tool!
