Accelerated I/O, Inc. has created what is believed to be the first photo animation application. Users can upload photographs, convert them into Scalable Vector Graphics, and create an animation that will run on most modern browsers. These animated photos are easy to make and fun to share with friends. Animated photos make websites much more engaging and interactive.
Name of the App: PnZ Photo Animation
Developer: Accelerated I/O, Inc.
Price: Creating unlimited animations is free, converting the uploads to SVG is charged by the pixel at 1 penny per 10,000 pixels, i.e. 100 by 100 image.

PnZ Photo Animation allows users to upload photos, take selected parts from them, and put them into an animated photo.
- Accepts upload of JPEG and PNG file formats
- Animations can be viewed in all major browsers, although IE will need Adobe’s SVG Viewer plug-in
- Animations currently can be created with the Mozilla Firefox browser
- File format is SVG which is an open standard developed and recommended by the W3C
- Animations can be zoomed in or out
- Animations can be timed
- Animations can moved up to 100 places in the photo
- The SVG standards allow many other animation options which Accelerated I/O intends to incorporate into their app
AIO has open sourced the web animation and encourages application developers to build upon the code and sell their own apps based upon their application tool.
