Filtering a Video Online for Free

Filters for video aren't just for superficial purposes. Many creators choose filters to brighten a video, draw emphasis to certain features, and even to make a video more accessible. Kapwing's original filter presets allow creators to take their videos to the next level in just a few clicks.

Start by uploading a video file from your phone or computer, or pasting a link to any video you found online. Choose any filter you want to add, from 70's color palettes to old-fashioned sepia tones. For manual adjustments, click the Adjust tab and move the sliders to change your videos' brightness, contrast, saturation, blur, and opacity.

When your video looks just right, click Done and use Kapwing's Studio tools to make any edit from trimming and cropping your video to adding custom text and transition animations. When you've exported your filtered video project, you can download it directly to your device or share it straight to social media using the Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter buttons.

Filtering a video with the Kapwing Studio is easy: no watermark, no downloads required, no hassle. We hope you enjoy making your videos with Kapwing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bob, our kitten, thinking

How to Filter Videos on an iPhone?

There is a set of filters built into the iPhone and iPad photos app. Open Photos, find the video, and click “Edit”. Then, use the third icon to try out different filters on your video and save. Later, you can always revert your video file if you want to return it to normal. Alternatively, you can use a GIF editor like Kapwing to add filters, effects, overlays, and animations on your video.

How to Remove a Filter from a Video?

Filters are generally burned directly into the video as an MP4, so it’s not possible to remove the filter from the video. Creators can try to put a new filter on the video that reverses the previous edits, like increasing the saturation of a video that previously had the saturation lowered. If you share the video link using an online or collaborative editor, you can edit it, remove the filter, and collaborate with others.

[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!
