A Swift library for creating and saving Live Photos


As a CocoaPods Dependency:

Add the following to your Podfile:

pod 'LPLivePhotoGenerator'

cd into the directory where your Podfile is present and install

pod install

Manual Installation (Framework):

  1. Drag the LPLivePhotoGenerator.xcodeproj file into your Xcode project.
  2. Add LPLivePhotoGenerator.framework to "Embedded Binaries" in the "General" tab of your target.

Import the library, wherever you want to use it:

import LPLivePhotoGenerator


Creating and Saving a Live Photo:

// Create a LivePhoto object with a image path and video path
LPLivePhotoGenerator.create(inputImagePath: imagePath, inputVideoPath: videoPath) { (livePhoto: LPLivePhoto?, error: Error?) in

    // Unwrap object
    if let livePhoto = livePhoto {

        // Set the Live Photo in a PHLivePhotoView
        let livePhotoView = PHLivePhotoView(frame: rect)
        livePhotoView.livePhoto = livePhoto

        // Save Live Photo to Photo Library
        livePhoto.writeToPhotoLibrary(completion: { (livePhoto: LPLivePhoto, error: Error?) in

          if error == nil {

Extra Tool (LPLivePhoto Method):

// Move paired image and video to new path
livePhoto.movePairedImageAndVideoTo(path: path, completion: { (success: Bool, error: Error?) in

    if success {
