Adjust video for the perfect look online

Consolidating your editing process into one simple and easy-to-use online platform is a great way to ensure consistency in your video content. Luckily, Kapwing allows you to adjust your video in the browser and tweak things like colors, timing, text—and share a link to get feedback on those changes.

Kapwing's adjustment tools give you full creative control. Creators can prepare their videos for social media platforms like Instagram with vignette or high contrast. Videos are heightened when you change the saturation and brightness to match the mood. Think of famous films by Wes Anderson that can't help but draw the eye. You can be the creative producer of your own videos using the video adjuster. It also allows for edits like trimming, cropping, muting, speeding up, rounding the corners, and resizing a video layer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

How do I adjust my video online?

To adjust videos online, creators need a reliable browser-based tool that enables alterations to the properties of a video’s appearance. Creators rely on this capability for various reasons such as brightening videos filmed in poor lighting conditions and to give content a new feel. With Kapwing, you can upload videos from any device with a browser, then adjust each property setting to achieve the desired look.

How do I adjust video brightness online?

In order to adjust video brightness online, you need to fine tune the properties of brightness with a browser-based tool. Many online tools can achieve this task, but we recommend trying Kapwing. Kapwing, an online video editor, allows you to easily adjust video brightness by dragging sliders from left to right until you achieve the desired brightness. You can reset the brightness if you want to start over, and view the adjustments in real-time.

How do you contrast a video?

Creators contrast videos by adjusting the contrast property with a software tool. This process changes the ratio of difference between elements in the video. High contrast videos will show a wide range of tones while low contrast videos will have little tonal difference. To create video with vibrant colors that pop off the screen, creators opt for a high contrast, and use low contrast to give videos a soft appearance.

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!
