Turn Images into Videos Online

Turning a static image into a video, even if it's a static video, can lead to higher engagements on social media platforms that are prioritizing video content. Kapwing supports a wide range of image to video workflows, from the simple task of making a video out of a still image, to a more complex task of freeze framing and editing a skill video clip for emphasis.

Get started by uploading a JPG, PNG or GIF from an iPhone, Android, PC or Tablet or paste a link. You can also upload a set of images to assemble the perfect video. Drag and drop each layer to change the order and choose a preferred aspect ratio such as 9:16 for TikTok or 16:9 for YouTube. You can set a specific duration for each image or apply the same duration to every image layer. Easily crop images and add a colorful background to make your image stand out.

Upload audio or paste a URL to add audio such as background music. You can trim, cut, and loop the audio and adjust the volume to the perfect level. Add a start time so your audio begins playing at the right moment.

For more adjustments, edit your images in Kapwing. Round the corners, add animations, overlay shapes, and erase the background. Achieve the perfect look by adding filters and adjust the saturation, opacity, brightness, and more. When you're finished creating a video from images, download and save your MP4 or share your video directly to Facebook,Instagram, or Twitter.

Make your favorite GIFs, pictures and music into a video with this simple image to video tool by Kapwing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

How do I make a video with pictures and music?

You can make a video with pictures and music by using a video editor that supports multimedia projects that include video, image, and audio. Some things to look out for in a video editor is how efficient its tools are, how reliable the software is itself, and how easy it is to learn. While there are many online video editors that are reliable, efficient, and easy-to-use, Kapwing is cloud-based so you can upload and store any type of media file and edit them on either your computer or phone.

How do I change a JPG to a MP4?

To change a JPG to a MP4, you need a multimedia converter. This can be either an image converter or a video converter. Keep in mind when you change a JPG to a MP4, you have to add a time duration to turn images into video. If after you turn your image into a video you want to edit your video, use a video editor to add text, subtitles, and more elements so it’s not just a still image. An online tool you can use to convert images to video and edit it is Kapwing, the online video editor with a built-in image converter.

Is JPG a video format?

JPEG (also known as JPG) is an image compression format and stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group. A JPG can be a video format when you combine multiple JPG files into one movie format, turning it into an M-JPEG (Motion JPEG). When this process occurs, the M-JPEG file contains a series of individual JPEG files, creating a new video file format.

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!
