Make GIFs from your live photos!

Make GIF and Movie from your Live Photos.

Lively lets you make GIF and Movie from Live Photos at ease. You can now share your Live Photos with your friends on iMessage, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Slack, Tumblr and more.

Lively gives you full control of your GIFs with extensive editing features: trim, play backward, auto reverse and speed control. GIF size too big? You can make it smaller too. Last by not least, full 3D Touch support. Gotta press that screen.

Oh, you can pick a single frame from the video part to save. Your child moves right the moment you take the shot? No worry, just grab the right frame from the video. All that, with correct metadata as the original Live Photo.​

Lively lets you export for free with a watermark. A single in-app purchase allows you to remove the watermark.

Important: You need an iPhone 6S/6S Plus or above to capture Live Photos. You can still use the app on older iPhone, just get your friends to send you one via iMessage.

Really full featured and great working app

This is obviously an app built by talented developers. Everything works as claimed, and the features are deep. Haven't seen anything else’s like it.

Apple should really step it up and add some native features for handling Live Photos, which are really an excellent addition to photography. Until then, thanks to people who write apps like this one.

I will buy and pay for this app when a bulk feature for exporting movies is added. I really need a way to export hundreds of Live Photo’s at a time to movies stored in iCloud Drive. This app does it perfectly one by one, but a bulk move is much more efficient.

A lot of potential wasted here! Yes, this app can turn live pictures into “gifs” and it can adjust/trim the live picture itself, which they call “movie”. To put it accurately, this apps simply allows us to manipulate (edit) live pictures. That’s it! It doesn’t create anything! But get this, the “created” files are useless when trying to share in Facebook or trying to use in movie creator apps, such as Splice. Why would I want to create a “movie” or better yet “motion and gif” file out of a live picture file that can’t be used anywhere else but in my picture file folder? When sharing, you can only view the still picture and not even the live picture! So it doesn’t convert anything into simply edits your already motion/live pictures. That’s so pretty ridiculous, sad, and it makes this app completely useless. I can share live pictures (that will appear still) without having to convert it into gif files!

Until you come up with a good way to interface with other apps and social media, this app is USELESS AND WORTHLESS!

Great app

As a photographer that likes to dabble in video I love this app. You can grab a frame from a live photo, turn it into a gif or mov. Adjust the speed and you have a nice little file. If you've ever played with the boomerang app, you know how dysfunctional it is to use. You have to time everything perfect as your taking it and then it takes a few seconds to save (making sure you miss your next shot). Now I just shoot with Live Photos and am pleasantly surprised about how much information was actually captured.
