iPhone users must have come to know this fact that a live photo captured on iPhone 6s can be viewed only on iPhone 6s. The very basic purpose of taking a photo is killed.
But there is a way out! You can send your live photo to users of iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus by converting them into GIF files.
How to Convert Live Photos into Shareable GIFs on iPhone 6s or 6s Plus
Step #1. Launch Live GIF or Lively on your iPhone 6s.
Since you are using this app for the first time, it will ask you to access your photo album. Tap on OK.
The app will automatically detect your live photos.
Step #2. Tap on the Live Photo you want to share.
You can see two options right above your live photo: Movie and GIF.
Step #3. Tap on GIF.
Below the live photo, there is a button: Export as GIF.
Step #4. Tap on the button of Export as GIF (Lively) or Share GIF (Live GIF).
Two menu bars will swipe up with several sharing options.
Step #5. You can save GIF to your iPhone camera roll or tap on any one option with which you want to share GIF.
Step #6. In case of message, type in or select the name of person with whom you want to share GIF.
Step #7. Finally, tap on the Send button.
This is done. Your live photo will be sent to your friend in a GIF format. Please note that you won’t be able to share live photos via Facebook and Twitter, hence, you need to share applications like iMessage, WhatsApp or Mail to share live photos as GIFs.
If you want to share your live photos through Facebook or Twitter, you need to select your live photos from Camera Roll.
