Personally, I really like adding gifs to my gallery. It helps break up the viewing experience and adds a dynamic layer to things. Recently I found out you can quickly make gifs off of the stock iPhone camera app. Here’s how :
1. Turn on the live photo feature. It looks a target symbol. Shown here in yellow.
2. Snap a Photo, not video. Make sure you capture a couple. There’s a 2 second window for how the phone processes the gif.
3. Navigate to your gallery. Find the photo you like. Swipe up to access the “Live Photo” editor. Choose between : loop, bounce and long exposure. Play with the options to see what you like.
