How You Can Turn Your Live Photos into Videos in iOS 13
Live Photos are a fun way to relive memories, but there's a problem: unless you're only friends with Apple users, sharing Live Photos isn't easy to share with non-Apple users. Without a third-party converter, you can't share your Live Photo in all its moving glory. That is, until iOS 13, where you can quickly turn your Live Photos into videos.
Converting a Live Photo in iOS 13 is super easy.
- Open Photos
- Then open the Live Photo in question.
- Tap the share button in the bottom-right corner of the display,
- Scroll down and tap "Save as Video."
If your Live Photo is stored in iCloud Photo Library, it will need to download first. You'll then see the new video saving.
Once complete, you can go to your Videos folder or "All Photos" to post or share your new video. Just keep in mind this video will have the same time and date as your Live Photo, so it will be sorted accordingly in your library.
If you don't see this option here, it's likely you have a Live Photo effect enabled. Swipe up on the Live Photo to reveal the effects browser. If either "Loop," "Bounce," or "Long Exposure" are enabled, simply tap "Live," and repeat the steps above.
