    I used to use lightroom to handle my photos from DSLR and iphone, because lightroom provides better management (category, edit, tag...). However, iphone 6S comes with "Live photos" function, which actually combined a jpg and mov file after importing to computer. The Native way to have such "life photos" is using Photos app in OSX/MAC, because I read in forums about poor support of "Live photos" function of lightroom currently. So, what's your workflow when handle / manage "Live photos" files from iphone??

    Turn off the feature?
    Not really something I'd ever use.
    I'd imagine Photos app would handle them well enough. I'm still on iPhoto on my Mac and use that for the very few iPhone snaps I take.
    LR is just for my DSLR.

    I use LR in connection with Photos (I don't know what Fotos is) & iCPL so I just let it it all sync that way. Live Photos is only viewable on iOS devices and in the Photos app currently. And by poor support, I think you mean no support in LR for Live Photos. I never really expect that to happen or really need it to. Like @Apple fanboy, LR is strictly for my real cameras.

    Thanks for your advises, and sorry for mis-spelling; I think I'd better leave Live photos to "Photos" of OSX alone and let LR to handle the rest.
