Live Photo

I thought it’d be fun to take a live photo and make it a nice video for my about page. There’s not really any images of me on here and I always like it when someones site has at least one picture of them. It’s nice to see what people look like.

I used Lively on iOS to export a movie from a live photo.

From there, I used FFmpeg to crop the video and remove the audio.1

I think the result is nice. I might rotate out the video periodically just to make things exciting.

Update: Now with LivePhotosKit JS it’s legit!

  1. Turns out cropping video seems like an otherwise hard problem.
