We have seen plenty of apps on the App Store which let users convert Live Photos to still images or a Live Photo to a share-friendly gif or video file. But about the other way around? What if we want to convert our existing still images into animated Live Photos of sorts? A new app called LivePapers can help us do just that.

The app is easy and simple to use, with the user having to select any still image from the Camera Roll in the app and then applying desired animation effects and filters from a set of available options. The app also comes with an in-app camera viewfinder to help users quickly grab a new still photo and then convert it into a Live Photo by applying effects on the fly should they wish.

The effects available in the app are what essentially gives the photo that animated feel which can be invoked using 3D Touch gesture on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Those with non-3D Touch devices running iOS 9.2 can also view the animated Live Photo using the long-press gesture.

Live Photos created using LivePapers app can be saved back to the Camera Roll. Images saved as Live Photos this way can also be set as Live Wallpapers on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Because of Apple’s limitation, Live Wallpapers option is available only on the 3D Touch supported iPhone models.


LivePapers app can be grabbed right now for $1.99 from the App Store. It is compatible with all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models running iOS 9.2 or up.
