Question: How to make a live photo a jpeg?

I have taken about a 100 live photos. Short of taking a screenshot of each one, how do I make them jpeg images when I transfer them to my pc?

iPhone 6s, iOS 11.1

Hi Jammy232,

Thanks for reaching out in Apple Support Communities. I understand that you'd like to transfer still images as JPEG files from the Live Photos you've taken on your iPhone to your Windows PC. I understand wanting to be able to do this and I'd like to help. First, you'll want to use these steps to select the key photo from each Live Photo that you'd like to transfer:
  1. Open the Live Photo.
  2. Tap Edit.
  3. Move the slider to change the frame.
  4. Release your finger, then tap Make Key Photo.
  5. Tap Done.

You can also toggle the Live Photo effect off when you tap Edit > User uploaded file. If you change your mind, just tap User uploaded file again in Edit.

Next, use these steps to select the photos and share them via email:
  1. Tap User uploaded file.
  2. In iOS 10 and earlier, if you want to share the still photo and not the Live Photo, tap Live in the upper-left corner.
  3. Choose how you want to share your photo.
    If you choose Mail, it sends as a still image.
Take and edit Live Photos

The files will come through as JPEG that you can then download to your PC.

Best Regards.
