Even if your software isn’t up to date, as long as your mobile device has iOS 11, you can still change live pictures to video. This method has one critical difference — you transform your images into a clip. Open the image you want to convert in the iOS Photos app. Then swipe up on the photo to access the Effects menu. Two effects in particular, Bounce and Loop, will animate your capture. You can also convert the Live Photo to a video clip in the Share menu. Just click the share icon and scroll down to the Save as Video option.
Loop repeatedly plays the animation of your photo for a set period. Bounce, on the other hand, plays the clip forward and backward continuously, similar to a Boomerang video on Instagram. Once you choose your effects and save your video file, you can find it in the Animation folder in the Photos app. If you previously did not have animated content, the folder will be automatically created when you save the clip.
