Get More Out of Live Photos on iPhone

If you have an iPhone, you may already be familiar with the Live Photo feature that it has. When Live Photos are enabled, whenever you take a picture, the iPhone will also capture a few seconds before and after the shot is taken. This gives the photo some motion, almost like a very short video clip. But you may not know that it can actually go beyond just that basic functionality. After you take a photo of something that moves, go to edit the photo and swipe up. This will reveal a few different effects that you can apply. You can select "Loop," which will loop the Live Photo with a slight dissolve, or "Bounce" which will play it forwards, then in reverse. There's also a "Long Exposure" selection.

Once you've created your Live Photo, you can use the GIF Toaster app on iOS to turn it into the more standard GIF format.
