How to Edit Live Pho­tos

Mac Format - - MACOS SKILLS -

1 Trim and tweak

Select a Live Photo and click Edit. Un­der the pic­ture, drag the yel­low han­dles to change the start and end points of the video com­po­nent. To change the key photo, drag the white square, then click Make Key Photo.

2Create loops

Got a photo that would make a great end­less loop? Let Pho­tos do all the work: switch the pop-up menu’s value from Live to Loop. Pho­tos will sta­bilise and crop your Live Photo, to make it work as well as pos­si­ble.

3Long ex­po­sures

From the same menu, select Long Ex­po­sure to turn a Live Photo into a still in which mov­ing wa­ter is smoothed or lights be­come trails. This works best if you use a tri­pod, as mov­ing scenes will just blur oth­er­wise.
