With Unlive, you can export in a quick and easy way the photo and the video contained in your favorite Live Photos.
Live Photos are pictures that come alive for a few seconds. They can be created using the camera on recent Apple devices and they are meant to improve the traditional photos.
Thanks to Unlive:
- The associated photo can be exported in .jpg, .png or .heic format (if supported by the device).
- The associated video can be exported .mov or .gif format.
It is possible to specify the dimensions of the image or video before exporting it, in order to control the size of the exported file.
You will find the original and intuitive user interface, common to all our videos applications.
These applications have been featured many times by Apple and various websites.
- Small fixes and improvements.
- Potential fix for a regression (introduced in iOS13.2 beta), preventing the export of some images with GPS information.
- The modified version of the video (if any) is now the version opened by default, when selecting a video thumbnail in the app.
If you want to open the original video instead, you can long press on the video thumbnail to access the dedicated option.
