Disable Live Photos in Messages

by Sean McCabe

Live Photos are a great way to add life to the pictures you take. Your iPhone records a few seconds of movement and sound around the time you take a photo.

While Live Photos are wonderful for revisiting special moments, you often don’t want to include a Live Photo when sending a picture over iMessage as you might accidentally reveal more than you meant to.

While not immediately apparent, once you select a photo from your camera roll in the Messages app, you can tap on the circular Live Photo indicator at the top left to quickly toggle Live Photo on or off.
