To view a live photo, open the album, inwhich it contains. Photos taken with a tweak are marked ‘Live’. Press and hold on the photo preview to start the animation. The sound will not be reproduced, since the tweak only adds frames to the photo, and does not record video, as implemented in the original Live Photos technology.
Tweak adds a separate dialogue with Settingsyour settings; You can choose the duration of the animation, turn on or turn off the front lighting to take a selfie in the dark, and also change the gesture that starts the live animation.
