Apple Publishes New Tutorials for Live Photos and Portrait Selfies

Apple is no stranger to publishing tutorial videos, even for its brand new HomePod smart speaker, and the company is at it again for iPhone photography.

Today, Apple has officially uploaded three new tutorial videos on its official YouTube channel. The first of the bunch is entitled “How to create a bouncing Live Photo on iPhone”, while the other two are “How to edit a Portrait Selfie on iPhone X” and “How to shoot a Portrait Selfie on iPhone X”. Each of the videos are just over 30 seconds in length.

Here is how Apple describes the video focused on bouncing Live Photos:

“Take your Live Photos to the next level by making them bounce. Explore more photography tips and techniques at https://apple.co/2H5t83B”

And the video itself:

And here is the company’s brief description for editing selfies on the iPhone X:

“Add Portrait Lighting effects even after you’ve taken the perfect selfie. Explore more photography tips and techniques at https://apple.co/2Ew3c2E”

And the video:

Finally, here is how Apple describes the video for snapping a Portrait Selfie with the iPhone X:

“Use Portrait Lighting with the front-facing camera for a studio-quality selfie without the studio. Explore more photography tips and techniques at https://apple.co/2BQVLSL”

Our Take

These videos are usually pretty quick and right to the point, and can be pretty helpful for folks who want a simple tutorial video on some of the new features tied to Apple’s latest products. Apple must be seeing quite a bit of traffic on them, because it keeps uploading new ones on a semi-regular basis. Even now, the new videos already have thousands of views.
