From time to time, I back up my accumulated photos and videos from iPhone to Mac to create archives. Once, I decided to try to reproduce the long exposure effect on old Live Photos of Georgian waterfalls, the originals of which had long been removed from the iPhone.

Unfortunately, at that moment I did not know how to transfer Live Photos to Mac correctly, and therefore instead of “live photos” on my computer I found only ordinary videos in mov format.
After transferring these videos back to the iPhone, the Photos application, naturally, did not recognize the former Live Photos in them – they were already just videos to which it was impossible to apply standard “live photo” effects.
In search of a solution, I came across a simple free IntoLive app that amazingly repaired all my broken Live Photos.

How to make Live Photos from video on iPhone and iPad
1. Download the free IntoLive app from the App Store (link).
2. Launch the app and select the video you want to make Live Photos from.
Note: As you know, the timing of “live photos” from Apple cannot exceed 3 seconds, but you can choose a video of any length. In the program itself, the video can be trimmed. If you use a long video, then the application will create Live Photos from the first three seconds of it.
3. In the next step, you can slightly edit the result. Use cropping, color correction, rotation, etc. Click the button Do in the upper right corner.
4. In the context menu that appears, click No repetitions…
Wait a few seconds for the video to process, and then at the bottom of the app, click on Save Live Photos…
That’s all, this is how you created based on your video “Live photos”…
Received Live Photos will be saved to Album Photo Live Photos in the Photos app on iPhone.
