Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

How can I add a picture in a video online?

Today, most creators use a browser based software tool to join photos and videos online. Photos are positioned on top of the video layer, then scaled down to avoid obstructing subjects in the video. Photos are also timed to appear then disappear at the appropriate moments. This process allows creators to elevate storytelling, improve the visual appeal, and create branded content. We recommend using Kapwing online, since you don’t have to download any software. 

How do you add photos to a video clip for free?

Use a free video editor like Kapwing. Kapwing is a video editor that you can use directly in your web browser, add your video and images, and do all the editing you need to do. No need to download or pay for any heavy-duty video editing software.

How do you add a picture to a video on your phone?

To add a picture to a video on your phone, you should use a mobile video editing app or an online video editor. With Kapwing, you can add any pictures to any videos directly from your phone’s browser. This is available on all devices such as an iPhone, Android, Samsung, and more.

Best online video service ever. And a miracle for deaf people.
[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
