GIFS are a fun way to communicate with friends and iPhone lets you create one of the moving images in just a few seconds.

How to make a GIF on iPhone

A GIF is a photo that is usually animated for a few seconds and moves on a repeated loop.

To take a Live Photo you need to click the dotted circular button at the top of your camera app so it turns yellow.

One you've selected your Live Photo swipe up on the screen so the moving photo "Effects" option comes up.
