New video tutorials from Apple explain how to customize and share Moments

Apple yesterday published a pair of new videos through its official YouTube channel, covering the Moments feature in Photos which uses machine learning to automatically create themed albums and animated slideshows from your best images and videos.

Running sixteen seconds long each, the two new clips show how to customize and share Memories in the stock Photos app on iPhone. Using iOS's multipurpose Share sheet, users can publish their currently playing Memory Movie to Facebook, Twitter and other services.

And with the ability to choose from many built-in templates and songs, everyone can customize every Memory to their liking, all from within the stock Photos app.

How to create Memories based on specific photos

Not too many years ago, compiling a personal slideshow on your iOS powered device was still a pretty big undertaking. Thankfully, we have come a long way since then and owing to the combined power of iOS and Siri intelligence now have a wealth of so called Memories at our fingertips, sometimes so many it's hard to keep up with. Despite the baked-in features to personalize these slideshows, there is still a degree of creativity you surrender to Apple's algorithms, most crucially in picture selection.

If this happens to be your main beef with Memories too, maybe the time is now to give the able feature a chance to get (back) in your good books. Because counter to common perception, there is an easy way to manipulate the picture selection process and generate Memories as beautiful and personal as a hand-picked slideshow. Here's how to use the brainpower of Memories while remaining completely in charge of the photos starring in the slideshow.
