How Live Photo works

“Live photos” work very simply. after you start taking a photo, the iPhone or iPad camera records 1.5 seconds of video before the shot, and then 1.5 seconds after it was taken. As a result, a valuable “context” is added to the photo, information about what was happening around, and the output is a kind of mini-video. Animation is shown by clicking on the photo.

Apple has already revealed that Live Photo is not a video file, but a combination of a 12-megapixel.JPG photo with a.MOV file. “Live photography” includes 45 frames, and is played back at a speed of 15 frames per second (it turns out just 3 seconds).

The combination of the two formatsJPG and.MOV. also results in the fact that the internal storage of Live Photo takes up 2 times more space than a regular picture.

What devices support Live Photo shooting

Live photos can be taken with iPhone 6s (2015), iPad 5 (2013) and newer Apple smartphones and tablets.

Live Photos: how it works and which iPhones and iPads are supported

Live Photos is a software feature in iOS (Camera app) that allows you to take animated photos on your iPhone.

What happens if you send a Live Photo to an old iPhone or Mac

Due to the nature of Live Photos (combination.JPG MOV), you can only fully enjoy the “come to life” photos on devices with iOS 9 and higher, Apple Watch with watchOS 2 and higher, and Mac running OS X El Capitan and higher. If you want to send Live Photos to an unsupported device, the MOV component will be removed, leaving only the most common photo in.JPG format. The OS X Yosemite Photos app displays two files instead of one Live Photos — one with.JPG and the other with.MOV. In El Capitan, there is already one file, the associated animation is played by double-clicking on it. But if you reset Live Photos on iPhone 6, but with iOS 9 installed, there will be no problems. the animation will remain.

As you can see in the screenshots. The JPG component of the Live Photo taken with the iPhone 6s camera takes 2.5 MB. The MOV component “weighs” 1.7 MB. If you use the front camera for such shooting, then the.JPG will be smaller. 1 megabyte, but the size. MOV will remain the same. The resolution of the.MOV file in both cases was 960 × 720 pixels at 12 FPS.

You have probably noticed that there are very few photographs from Russia, more precisely only one. It is understood that we are surrounded by dirt, gray panels, dull landscapes and that’s all.

But the more enjoyable it will be to take a really cool shot, filled with meaning, with the right perspective or unexpected angle.

Let’s take part in this competition. Check out your photo gallery. I’m sure everyone already has at least one masterpiece frame worthy of the “Shot with iPhone” tag.
