    Hello all,

    When I import live photos onto my Mac Photos application, it splits them into short 3 second movies and the actual JPG. Is there a way to keep them one file? Do most people just delete the 3 second movie file?

    I'm still on Yosemite on my Mac. Will upgrading to El Capitan correct this situation?

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    I've got the same problem. In fact, it's a bit inconsistent. Some show as live photos while others are not. They've all been imported via USB cable if that makes a difference. iCloud Photo Library turned off, Photostream turned off.
