Choose Favorites from Burst Mode Images on iPhone 6
Edited by Grimm, Crystal, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to edit a series of burst mode images without cluttering or clogging the photo gallery of your iPhone 6.
To begin, press the home button in the bottom center of the phone one time. This takes us to the lock screen.
Swipe across the screen to enter the passcode area, or just use the Touch ID and press a finger against the home button. This will take us to the home screen.
We now want to find and tap the Photos icon. This is a multicolored flower or color wheel icon labeled "Photos". We'll then see all of our albums.
If we don't see our albums, we should tap on the "Albums" icon in the bottom right-hand corner.
From here, we're looking for the series of images that we last took. In this example, it was a moving hand, and we know that by looking at the thumbnail.
If we don't know what image it is, we can tap on an image and scroll through them until we see "Burst" in the top left-hand corner of the image.
To edit the series of photos, we're going to tap on "Select".
To delete them, we would just tap the delete icon. We're going to tap on "Select", which will open up the whole series of images.
We can slide to the right at the bottom to get to the very first image.
We can then scroll through until we find the image that we like. We'll notice some images have a dot under them, which is just Apple telling us that it might be better than the other photos.
Tap on the chosen image. We will then see a blue check mark in the bottom right-hand corner. If we tap it again, the check mark will disappear.
We'll scroll through until we find another image and tap on it until we see the blue check mark.
When we're done, we tap on "Done".
Now we're given the option to keep everything, or only keep the photos we selected. We're going to keep the 2 favorites, which will delete the other images.
Now we have two hand photos in the photo gallery. If we keep scrolling, we'll see the older pictures.
To delete the image, tap on the trash can icon.
Tap "Delete Photo". We'll delete both photos.
When we're done, we can simply press the home button. This will take us back to the home screen where we can start using the phone like we normally would.
This concludes the tutorial on how to edit photos taken in burst mode to declutter our phone. For those of you interested in more details, more information or more camera tricks for the iPhone 6, make sure to check out our other article. Otherwise, thanks for choosing VisiHow.

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.
