Apple’s iPhones and iPads are known for their special features that set them apart from other smartphone models. One of these features is the ability to capture Live Photos, which are unique in nature. Live Photos on iPhone allow you to capture 1.5 seconds of video before and after you push the shutter button, enhancing the scene with music and movement.
If you want to share your Live Photos with someone who doesn’t own an Apple device, it’s important to convert them into videos. When Live Photos are shared with non-Apple devices, they become static and lose their motion and sound characteristics.
Converting Live Photos into videos on your iPhone or iPad is a simple process. Just follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the Photos App
On your iOS device, open the ‘Photos’ app to access your photo library.
Step 2: Go to the Live Photos Album
In the ‘Albums’ tab, navigate to the Live Photos album. This is where all your Live Photos are stored.
Step 3: Select the Live Photo
Tap on the Live Photo that you want to convert into a video.
Step 4: Access the Options
In the upper-right corner, you’ll find three dots. Tap on them to access the options menu.
Step 5: Save as Video
From the options menu, select the ‘Save as Video’ option. Your iOS device will convert the Live Photo into a video and save it in the Video or Recent album.
Now, you can easily share the converted Live Photo video with anyone, regardless of whether they have an Apple device or not. This way, you can preserve the motion and background sounds of the Live Photo for everyone to enjoy.
