Video is taking over the internet; there’s no question. However, with so many videos, it can be hard to get your audience’s attention or keep them engaged. That’s why adding titles to your videos works; it combines the power of video and text.

Now, you need a simple way to add the title without watching endless YouTube videos trying to figure out how to edit. With Kapwing, you won’t need to suffer this fate. Kapwing’s online video editor makes adding a title so simple, a kindergartener could do it (seriously, they use it). Add your title right now with these steps:

  1. Upload your video
  2. Add a title overlay
  3. Add a title with a background
  4. Publish and download

1. Upload your video

First, open the Kapwing Studio and click to upload or drag and drop your video. Kapwing is a web app so there’s no need to download anything and you can start creating without an account.

2. Add a title overlay

If you want your title to overlay on the video, this step is for you. First, click ‘Text’ and add your title. Edit the text using the tools on the right side. You can change the font, color, outline, background and animations.

If you need the title to disappear, open ‘Timeline’ at the top and drag the edges of the text overlay.

3. Add a title with a background

If you want your title to act more like a headline, this step is for you. First, unselect your video and choose the 1:1 aspect ratio at the top right. Now, select your video and click ‘Lock Ratio’ on the right. Center the video and change the background color (or not).

Next, click ‘Text’ and add your title. Edit the text using the tools on the right side. You can change the font, color, outline, background and animations.
