"I have taken about 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?"

Do you have the same requirement as the user's mentioned above? If you do, this guide will explain two straightforward methods to convert live photos to still or convert Live Photos to JPG.

Now, let's start with converting Live Photos to still photos. 

How to Convert Live Photos to Still Photos

Apple allows you to make a Live Photo still directly within the Photos app. Here are the steps:

Step 1. Open the Live Photo in your Photos app.

Step 2. Tap "Edit" in the upper-right corner. 

Step 3. Tap the Live button at the top of the screen to turn off the Live feature.

Tips: If you want to set a key photo, move the white frame on the frame viewer, tap "Make Key Photo," then tap "Done." If you want to trim a Live Photo, drag the end of the frame viewer to choose the frame you want. 

How to Convert Live Photos to JPG with EaseUS MobiMover

From the above, you can see that converting a Live Photo to a still photo is quite simple. But here's a problem: what if you have hundreds of photos to convert? That must be very time-consuming if you stick to the traditional converting way. In that case, a quicker and simpler solution is to utilize this picture converter and iPhone data transfer software - EaseUS MobiMover.

With this program, you can directly convert all photos to JPG by transferring pictures to your PC or Mac. The process won't compress the quality of your photos. More importantly, it supports batch transferring pictures, which would be great if you have hundreds of live photos to covert. Other than that, you can also transfer albums to your Mac or PC with this program. 

To convert Live Photos to JPG:

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your computer and launch EaseUS MobiMover. Choose "Browse & Transfer" on the left side panel, select "Pictures," and then select "Photos" to proceed.

Tips: In addition to EaseUS MobiMover, many online conversion services are also available for conversion. But we don't recommend this way out of concern for data security and personal privacy. 

In Conclusion

Converting Live Photos to JPG can be easy with the two methods. If you want to make a Live Photo a still photo, you can directly do it within the Photos app. While if you want to convert them to JPG, you need to use a photo converter like EaseUS MobiMover to help. Apart from EaseUS MobiMover, you can also use the File app to do the same thing. However, using the File app is long and complex, so we don't recommend it.
