How to turn your iPhone Live Photos into GIFs in iOS 11

Great little tip from the Mashable website on how you can convert photos in your Live Photos Album into GIFs in iOS 11. GIFs that can then be shared with whomever you choose.

  • Open Photos

  • Select the Live Photos Album

  • Select the live photo you wish to convert to a gif

  • When you have selected a photo swipe up on the screen (not from the very bottom or you will open the Control Centre) and you will see the following screen with a section named Effects. In here you can choose the effect you want the live photo to have:

    • Live
    • Loop
    • Bounce
    • Long Exposure
  • I will choose Loop

  • This will now take you to a new screen showing your live photo using the effect you chose

  • Now if you go into Photos you will see an album named Animated. Open the album

  • Select the live photo (which is now a GIF)

  • Select the Share Button

  • You can now share the GIF through whichever app you wish. So you can quickly share your new GIF via Whatsapp with a mate (I'm sure they'll love to get some random GIFs from you)
