How to use Live Photos on iPhone with iOS 11

The iPhone has new Live Photos effects from iOS 11. The arrival of the system update allows users to choose three new effects that apply specific movements in the image. The tool allows you to insert loop, back and loop effects (in the style of Instagram Boomerang) and long exposure mode (similar to that of professional cameras). Each of these modes allows you to achieve eye-catching results such as repeating images and creating patterns with light designs with the long exposure option.

After choosing an effect, the animated photos preview interface allows the image to be shared in video form on social networks and online messengers.
