Live Photos is a fun way to relive memories, but there is a problem: unless you are just friends with Apple users, sharing Live Photos is not quite as fun. Without a third-party converter, you cannot share your Live Photo in all its enjoyment. That is, until iOS 13, where you can quickly turn your Live Photos into videos.
Converting a Live Photo to iOS 13 is very easy. Just open Photos and then open Live Photo in question. Then click the split button in the bottom right corner of the display, then scroll down and press "Save as Video." If your Live Photo is stored in the iCloud Photo Library, it must be downloaded first. Then you will see iOS save the new video.
When you're done, go to your video directory or "All Photos" to share it once Live Photo to your heart's content. Just keep in mind that this video will have the same time and date as your Live Photo, so it will be sorted accordingly in your library.
If you do not see this option, you are likely to have a Live Photo effect enabled. Pull up on Live Photo to reveal the effect browser. If either "Loop", "Bounce" or "Long Exposure" is enabled, simply press "Live" and repeat the steps above.
