Why can youtube videos talk when .gifs can't?

Just like in the muggle world, photos are cheap paintings, they were made to replace and accelerate the process behind the painting. Easier, but it didn't have the same significance.

Rowling said that to get a wizarding painting to interact, you have to put more effort in it's making, you have to make it talk and act like the person it represents. All of us know photos are made to record the moment, not to make a personal memento of a person. I think you can apply the same logic to wizarding photos.

PAINTINGS separately enchanted to be able to interact with people around their painting.   
the photographs could only be enchanted to be able to move in the picture. because its an actual person in the photograph, they cant interact, otherwise, the person in the picture would be able to speak to him/herself. wizarding paradox, much?

What if Harry's parents are just dicks?

They could if they wanted, they just choose to ignore him

a portrait is magic that captures their personality, a picture is pretty much a printed gif

a photograph is like a small video of what happened, it captures the emotion and it plays like a .gif
I guess the portrait's are a clone of you able to move between other portraits

i think the difference might be that that's a picture, and while they do move, they aren't interactive. the interactive ones, or so i believe, are "portraits", that is, not just taken with a camera or whatever. just a theory, of course.

Probably because his parents are in a photograph if you recall the photos in the daily prophet could not interact with the reader but they still moved about

Only the paintings can talk, regular pictures just move.
Its simple, think back.. Out of all of the talking ones, they are all in hogwarts, or likewise with Phineas Nigellus, other paintings outside of hogwarts.

But absolutely zero pictures talk.. just move around or do the same thing each and every day.

Because of the billion other plot holes found in the Potter universe?
User avatar #58 to #57 - generaljosh (04/30/2013) [-]
I'm not pissed about it. It's one of my favorite series of all time. I'm just pointing out that it's not the best thing to look for plot holes in, because the Potter universe just does not follow conventional logic, nor does it take anything to it's logical extremes.

Not saying that's a bad thing, it's just a thing.

one's a paiting, one's a photo, it's different. My guess is magic paint.

A big part of the ending of Harry Potter was not being afraid of death and not to linger on the dead. Remember he threw away the resurrection stone after he used it to talk to his loved ones.

The people in the paintings are ghosts

Because his parents actually hates Harry, and they dont want to talk to him
#11 - anonymous (04/29/2013) [-]
maybe because the people in the paintings aren't dead? idk

Or consider this; If paintings interact,,, has anyone ever masturbated in front of a painting of their grandmother knowing she can do nothing about it?
