How to convert live photos to videos and gifs

Let’s be honest, if you list the features that you don’t pay much attention to on your iPhone, Live Photo is among them. However, when you swipe left and right in your photo album and see your photos are live, people you care are smiling, kids are running or snow falling down from the sky, I believe you will smile.

When it comes to some scenarios, things could get tricky as well. Sharing your live photos with friends who is not an iOS user could be problematic, only the still images will be seen. And, since live photos could be used as wallpaper now, what if you want to use a few seconds from video footage as your live wallpaper? These are the moments that you need to convert your live photo into a video/gif or make a live photo out of a video clip. While Apple doesn’t offer any solutions, here are some trustworthy third-party apps could help us out. You can do them all on your phone without using a computer.

Google Photo is an effective app to sort all the photos and I believe some of you are using it. But not many people noticed that they could directly save a live photo into a video using Google Photo.

2. LP – Live Photo to Video & GIF

This app allows you to export live photos to GIF, video, and still image. You can also customize your GIF export with several settings, including size limit, playback speed and resolution.
