How to convert the Live Photos of your iPhone 6s into a GIF

Apple presented the Live Photos as one of the novelties of the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. What may seem an attractive feature of the new iPhone can also be a big disappointment when sharing them, at least until the most important social networks include support for Apple's "live photos." Even when they do, there will be many occasions when we want to share them in an unsupported service. The best in those cases is make a GIF from a Live Photo and that is what we are going to teach you in this article.

How to turn Live Photos into an animated GIF

Soon there will be many applications in the App Store that will be able to convert Apple's live photos into a GIF but, for the moment, the most comfortable thing is to do it with a computer. Workflow is not yet supported, but it is likely to be in the not too distant future.

UPDATE: I add an app that already does.

The application is no longer available in the App Store

With Image Capture + Video to GIF

  1. We connect our iPhone, iPod or iPad to our computer with the Lightning cable.

<li>We open our favorite browser and go to the web <strong>Video to GIF</strong>. At first I wanted to recommend the web, but the GIF that creates us on that website is very heavy. On this website we just have to drag our video to the window that I have marked in red in the following image. </li>
<li>Once the conversion is finished, just click on Download.</li>
