How To Transform Your Childhood Photos To Videos With MyHeritage App

There is nothing more interesting than viewing your childhood photos and reminiscing on the memories that you had when you were a child. Unlike everyone, some of us have little or no memory of what happened on certain occasions when we were little.

Although we love to imagine what happened back then, with the MyHeritage app you can bring your childhood photos to life. The MyHeritage app brings old photos to life once you upload the photo to the app.

If you ask someone whose house is burning what they will take, apart from money and a few valuables, the other thing he/she might say is old photos. This is because they are very special and they were taken on a very occasion.

In the olden days, photos were taken on special occasions only, unlike recently where we have cloud storage and digital cameras on our smartphones. This means that, once you take a photo you take very good care of it as it could not be reprinted.

These past few days, social media has been exploding with short videos of people sharing their childhood photos where their faces and eyes are moving. The first time I saw this animated video, I didn’t realize it was a photo; it looked so real.

In this article, I am going to show your how to bring your childhood photos to life with the MyHeritage app.
