Creating a Looping Picture

To make a picture into a loop, you will first need to select an image that is compatible with looping. This can include GIFs and Live Photos. If you are using a GIF, the image should already be in a continuous loop when it is opened. To turn a Live Photo into a loop, open the photo and press the “Live” circle icon at the bottom of the screen. A scroll-down menu will appear on your screen and you can select “Loop” from this menu. Your Live Photo will then be set to loop automatically every time you open it.

Saving a Picture as a Loop on iOS 15

To save a picture as a loop on iOS 15, open the Photos app and select the Live Photos album. Select the desired Live Photo and tap the Share button. Then, choose the “Save as Video” option. This will create a video file that can be set to loop in its playback settings.


In conclusion, the iPhone’s Photo Loop feature is a great way to make your photos come alive. It captures 1.5 seconds of motion before and after the shutter is pressed and creates a looping animation that can be shared with friends and family. With iOS 13, you can also turn your Live Photos into videos that you can save to your Camera Roll or share on social media. Whether you’re looking to create eye-catching images or just have some fun with your photos, the iPhone’s Photo Loop feature is an excellent way to do it.
