Since iPhone 6s (Plus) was available, the funny feature of live photo was also coming to us. The logic of iPhone live photo is pretty simple. When you try to take a photo using Camera of your iPhone 6s, as well as the later iPhone 11/X/8, it will not only take the picture, but automatically record 3-second mov. files, 1.5 seconds video before the picture and 1.5 seconds video after taking the picture.

This is an awesome function. It would bring more fun to share our photos taken in daily life. However, on some occasions, the live photo would be still when sharing them with others; If importing live photos to computer to share online, they will become still images; If your friends don’t have the device that supports live photo, such iPhone 6/5s/5/4s, the live photos would also become still; etc.

So how to solve these problems? You must know that you can turn live photo into video, or GIF, save them on computer (PC/Mac), and share them via Mail, Messages, AirDrop, etc. In this post, we will share a practical tool to help you with how to make live photo into video.
