Sqirlz Morph 2.1

The Bottom Line

Squirlz Morph is an unremarkable, forgettable entry into basic image animation software, but it's not bad, either.

Pros

  • Installs quickly and cleanly.
  • Free. Can't beat that.
  • Prompts with helpful tooltips.

Cons

  • Interface is simplistic to the point of being annoying.
  • Doesn't offer many options to customize morphing.
  • Only supports JPG and BMP imports.

Description

  • Morphs one image into another, with animated effects.
  • Exports to Flash format for easy web upload.
  • Also allows AVI, GIF, and image sequence exports.

Guide Review - Sqirlz Morph 2.1

If I had to describe Sqirlz Morph 2.1, I'd call it...cute, but entirely unnecessary. It doesn't really offer anything new in a market that's already saturated with free and trial programs that do its job in a much cleaner, more intuitive fashion. Yes, it morphs images from one to the other and exports to Flash format - but when you see the end result, you may ask why you even bothered.

Normally I laud simplicity in design, but Sqirlz (I keep wanting to type Squirlz) Morph 2.1 is a little too simple in its Windows 3.1-style interface - yet it still manages to be too complicated where it matters. There are just a few too many steps in what should be a simple point-and-click experience, some that don't make sense as an intuitive process.

While I wouldn't call Sqirlz Morph 2.1 a bad program, it's an essentially useless one. 3.0 stars for making a program that works, and that does what it says it will do (for free). But I'd advise using something cleaner, more professionally designed, with better functionality.
