Two simple ways to make a Tik Tok video

Tik Tok is not only a cool platform for sharing videos but also an easy to use music video creator. You can shoot a video, trim it, add special effects, and pick the most appropriate background music. Moreover, it offers you the ability to upload photos to make an animated slideshow.
How to make a Tik Tok slideshow or video using the Tik Tok app:
- Search for the Tik Tok app on App Store or Google Play Store and then install it on your smartphone.
- Open the app and tap the white “Plus” sign at the center of its interface. You will be directed to an interface to log in the app before using it. You may log in with one of the social network service accounts you have. After logging in your account, click the “Plus” sign again. Please click “Allow access to camera” > “OK” and “Allow access to microphone” > “OK”.
- Tap “Music” to add the song that you would like to inset in your video. Click the “Play” icon and then you can preview the song. Tap the red “Confirm to use and begin shooting” option below the song to use it. You may also search for the song if you can’t find it in the category.
- There are three options for you: take a photo, tap shooting and long press shooting. Select the one that suits your need. When you finish recording the video or taking photos, tap special effects, and then you can select the filter and time effects to add. Tap the “Save” button on the top right corner.
- If you want to change the background music, tap the “Select sound” button. Tap the “Volume” button if you need to adjust the volume of the soundtrack and original sound. Tap “√” icon to save it.
