You can now create videos from photos on Instagram using the new feature called Live Photos.
With the introduction of Live Photos, users can take a picture and then edit it in real-time before posting it to social media. The edited images will appear for only a few seconds before disappearing.
Here’s how it works
If you’re not familiar with Live Photos, here’s what they do: They allow you to capture an instant moment in time by taking a photo while holding down the shutter button. Then, when you post the photo to Instagram, the original photo disappears and a live version appears. This means that people who view your photo will see the original photo, but also a live version of it.
Take a photo with your mobile phone or camera
Once you’ve taken a picture, open up the app where you’d normally share it. Click on the “Live” icon at the right corner of the screen. Now tap the “Add Live Photo” option. You’ll then be prompted to choose between a still image or a video. Choose the photo or picture you prefer and hit save.
Tap the screen to record a video
If you’re not sure how to make a video live photo, here’s what you need to do: Open up the app where you would normally post a photo. Click on the “Live Photo” at the top left corner of the screen. Then tap the “Add Live Video” option. You’ll be asked to select either a still image or a short video clip. Pick the one you prefer and tap save.
Choose which part of the photo you’d like to use as the background
Now you’ve got a live video! You can share it with friends via text message, email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Add text and other elements to make it look more professional.
If you’re looking to add some extra flair to your next video, try adding text to your photo before posting it to Instagram. This will give your video a little bit of personality and help it stand out from the crowd.
