How To Video
Share Live PhotosEven though Apple's Live Photos can only be viewed on iOS 9 devices, there is a workaround so you can share them with other users. Here's how.
If you love making live photos on the iPhone 6S or 6S Plus, then you'll definitely want to show them off. But, you probably noticed that you could share a photo over email or post it to social media in just the still image. There are two different ways to share the moving part of your live photo. The first is between your phone And another iOS 9 device. In the camera role find the live photo and tap the share icon. Turn on air drop on both devices. Select the name of the recipient and it will send across. [MUSIC] Now your friend can see the live photo and watch it just by pressing and holding the image. But if you want to share them with users no on an iOS 9 device or running El Capitan, you're out of luck, right? Wrong! Here is one work around. Connect your iPhone to a Mac by a lightning cable. And open up the image Capture app. Select the iPhone from the devices tab and you'll be able to see all of the still photos and they're corresponding live photos. These are actually just videos. Import the mov file to the live photo you want. On it's own, it's a video, but you can turn it into a gif that looks like a live photo and then share it on Facebook, Instagram or email. Use an app like Gifmaker or upload to an online service. Then you can share your animations far and wide. For more on love footage and general Iphone tips make sure to visit CNET.com.
