Questions and Answers

My burst shots don't always say "Burst" in the upper left corner?

Instead, they have a little blue circular symbol that says "Live". It seems that if they don't say "Burst", they don't show up in the "Burst" Album, and so I can't access them individually. Can you help me figure out how to access all the "Live" frames so I can pick the best frame?. . Thanks Grimm! How are "Live" shots different from "Burst" shots? How can I access individual "Live" frames? I have tried: On my iPhone 6S, running OS 10.2, how can I extract one frame from a live photo? I think it was caused by: I don't necessarily want the frame that the iPhone is choosing for me.
