Motion Stills App Makes GIFs from iOS Live Photos

Posted by at 12:12 pm on June 8, 2016

Google has released an app for iPhones called Motion Stills.

Google created the app in order to take advantage of Apple’s Live Photos, as captured by the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Live Photos can be shared with other Apple devices and through Facebook, but not other social networks.

With Motion Stills, Google uses its own video stabilization technology to freeze the background portions of Live Photos while allowing the subject/foreground to move independently.

The end result is a looping GIF that can be shared easily via most social media apps. The app also allows iPhone owners to merge looping GIFs into a larger moving picture.

Motion Stills is free to download from the iTunes App Store.
