    Very good. Many thanks. Do you have any comment on the merits of bursts v live photos?

    Bill: Bursts are very different. The purpose of a burst is usually to get a single good photo when the action is happening fast. Live Photos are an added feature of a regular photo that help you remember the moment.

    Hi Gary,
    I love your videos.
    My question: can I extract those little 3 second videos from the Live Photos on my iPads? Or do they first need to be transferred to the computer. I don’t do much on my computer anymore, preferring to stick with iOS.
    Thanks so much,
    Jai

    Jai: I don’t think there is a way to do it on the iPad, at least not one I have found. If you use iCloud Photo Library, then they are already on your Mac.

    Lovely tip. I have been wondering how to incorporate these 3 sec live photos in a movie. You are a treasure of ideas.
