How to Convert an Image to a Video

  1. Upload your image or images

    Upload an image or a set of pictures directly to Kapwing. You can also paste a link to a .png or .jpg on the web. Once uploaded, your images will appear on the canvas like a collage.

  2. Select time and size

    Select an image, then find the duration dropdown in the right editing menu. You can pick how long you want your output video to be by using the “edit duration” dropdown menu. You can also resize the image to a different aspect ratio. Crop, add music, set a background color, and more using Kapwing's simple editor. If you've uploaded multiple images, rearrange the photos into the correct order for a perfect slideshow.

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.
