Lytro, the company behind the Light Field camera, has closed down the website so 'living photos' can no longer be shared online. 

Those who own the Lytro Light Field camera will no longer be able to share 'living photos' on and/or Facebook from the Lytro Desktop or Lytro Mobile app.

Commenting on why Lytro has discontinued the website, the company said: "More than two years ago, Lytro began focusing on Light Field video solutions for the cinema and virtual reality industries and discontinued the manufacturing and distribution of Lytro cameras for photography. As a part of our plan to further focus on these new efforts, the ability to publish from Lytro Desktop and Lytro Mobile to will be discontinued."

All "local" Lytro Desktop features will continue to work such as adjustment and animation tools, presentation mode and exporting as .jpg, .mov, .gif, etc. The only parts of Lytro Desktop that will no longer function will be anything specific to online sharing.  

As the export process still works, those with Light Field cameras from Lytro can make a movie of their living picture and export it with the .mov extension or they can capture a focus point and share the results as a JPEG or GIF. They can also view a Living Picture using the Lytro Desktop software.
