Let Adobe put motion in your pictures.
You can also transform Live Photos with Adobe Premiere Pro on your desktop. This gives you the power to refine and polish your freshly minted footage and combine it with other video you might have. Whether it’s live images of people walking in a crowded city, rolling waves on the beach, other B-roll–style clips, or a short clip of your subject, you can add Live Photo videos to longer video projects. First, export your live images. If you use a Mac, don’t use Airdrop to transfer them over, as you’ll only get the static image files of your photos. Instead:
1. Open your iCloud Photos on the computer. Access iCloud through the Photos app on a Mac or download iCloud Photos for Windows via Apple’s support site or iCloud.com.
2. Select the live pictures you want to bring into Premiere Pro. You’ll see two files for each Live Photo you transfer, one image (.HEIC) and one video file (.MOV).
3. Hold the Option key down, then drag and drop to a new Finder window to save them to your desktop.
4. Open Premiere Pro, and drag and drop your clips into it. From there, the fun begins.
Splice in other footage you may have — like videos from a recent trip — to create a cohesive narrative. Add dazzling effects, filters, and colors that help bring your image to life. Keep in mind that the frame rate for these clips will vary depending on how much lighting is present, so you may need to adjust playback speeds in post-production for visual consistency if you plan to use your Live Photos in a video clip.
Since the aspect ratio for Live Photos is different from normal videos (4:3 instead of 16:9), Auto Reframe will resize your video in whatever format you want to share it in, from 4K to square. Then you’ll have action-packed clips perfect for posting on any social media channel.
