    Recently I started noticing that when I change my “key photo”, the photo will become a little cropped / zoomed in. This is super annoying and it ruins a lot of photos (I actually often end up disabling Live Photo on a photo where I’ve changed the key photo even though I love the Live Photo clips). Must be a bug and I’m curious if anyone else has this issue.

    Basically, let’s say I change the key photo on photo #2. Then I view photo #1 in full screen and slide over to photo #2 which will initiate the Live Photo clip. The clip plays zoomed out as it should be, but when it finishes on my new key photo, it will zoom in a bit. Super ugly. It gives the same effect as if you actually zoom in while taking your photo and you then play your Live Photo.

    Do you guys see this as well?

    Yes, I see this, but this may be by design. A Live Photo is not a burst series of snapshots - it is video captured for about a second and a half around the time that a photo is taken. Because it is a video, if I were to a guess, it's that the camera zooms in a bit (for image stabilization I believe) during the video portions of the live image, discarding a bit of the outer edges of the video as it processes the capture. So, when you change the key photo, it must change to an image created from the video capture. Also, the quality will suffer by definition, because video sacrifices details that don't happen when you capture a snapshot.
