With the TikTok app, you can easily edit videos. We will introduce you to the most important basic functions.
How to edit videos with TikTok: basic techniques of recording
TikTok offers you many options to create an attractive video.
The big red dot is for recording videos. Short press the point once, TikTok will record automatically. If you keep your finger on the button, the app will record until you release your finger from the button.
A cross for deleting the clip appears to the right of the red button.
On the far right, from your photo gallery, select videos or photos to add to your clip.
Above the red button is a bar where you can choose the speed for the final video.
Click “Add a Sound” to add a song of your choice to your video.
Use effects & filters in video editing
You can further spice up your clip with filters and effects.
To the left of the red button you will find the button to go to the effects.
Here you can choose from hundreds of effects in different categories. Click on the desired filter to select it.
Now, depending on the type of effect, you can place a mask on your face like with Animojis, for example, or place the effect elsewhere in the video.
You will find the filter button on the right-hand side in the middle.
Here you can select the right filter from hundreds and apply it to your video again by clicking on it.
Use the “Cancel” button to reset effects that you don’t like.

Not only can you post your videos to the app right after editing, but you can also download your TikTok videos.
There are a few ways to speed up a picture on TikTok. One way is to use the app’s filters to speed up the video. Another way is to use a third-party app to speed up the video.
To change the duration of a picture on TikTok, first open the picture you want to edit. Then, tap the three lines in the top left corner of the screen to open the menu. From there, select “Edit.” You should now see a toolbar at the bottom of the screen. This toolbar has a slider that allows you to change the duration of the picture. You can also use the buttons on the toolbar to add effects to your picture.
To change the time on a TikTok slideshow, open the app and select the slideshow you want to change. Tap the three dots in the top right corner of the screen, and then select “Settings.” Scroll down to “Timeline,” and then select the time you want the slideshow to start at.
