Live Photos?

Yesterday, I got an iPad Pro, and it is great. But one feature I still don’t quite understand is: Live photos. How can a photo be live? Wouldn’t a live photo be a video? Or is it more like a GIF?

Here is what I think it is: A live photo is sort of like a GIF. When you take a live photo, it keeps taking pictures for a second or two. These are then combined to make a GIF. You can choose the best frame, layer all frames on top of each other, or choose to animate it. There are two ways to animate it:

Loop

live loop

With this option, the frames are displayed in order and then they jump back to the start.

Bounce

live bounce

With this option, the frames are displayed in order and then they display in reverse.
