Adding Dots

Once you finish the Layout Wizard you will be brought into Morpheus Photo Morpher Mac with a new layout containing your pictures similar to what is shown here. The two pictures are labeled above each picture window showing you which picture your morph will start with and which picture it will end with.

The next step in creating your morph is to place dots in both of the picture windows in order to define how the morph will animate. First, you must select the Add Dots tool from the toolbar with the list of various tools on it as shown here.

In this example, we'll start by placing a dot near the eye of the dog in the starting picture window, as it is good to place dots around major picture elements such as the eyes, nose, or mouth. Simply click on the picture to add a new dot.

Notice that a corresponding "partner" dot will appear automatically in the opposite picture window, for every dot that you add to a picture.

Here we have added a dot near the other eye, and one on each side of the mouth of the dog. The more dots you place on any elements of your pictures, the better your resulting morph will be.

The most recently added dot will glow with a colorful outline, and its partner dot will glow with a black and white outline. This lets you easily see where the dots have been added. Notice how the partner dots appear in the same location on the ending picture as they do in the starting picture window. These partner dots will need to be adjusted by you (on the next step of this tutorial) so that they are situated appropriately on the same key elements of the other picture.
