One of the best parts of the video-sharing app TikTok is the fact that you can create virtually anything you could ever want in the platform to make epic videos

One of the most common editing techniques is stringing multiple photos or videos together to bring a static clip to life. So, how do you make a TikTok with multiple videos, and how do you add a picture to TikTok videos? These easy tactics will take you mere seconds to master.

How to Make a TikTok With Multiple Videos

Learning how to make a TikTok with photos and videos will become second nature in no time. Let’s start with videos!


1. Open up your TikTok app and click the plus symbol at the bottom of the screen to create a new video.

2. Press the bright red button to record your video. Remove your thumb from the red button when you want to end your clip. When you’re ready to record your next segment, just press that big red button again and record the same way. Continue this process until you’ve created all of the clips you want. You’ll see blue lines forming at the top of your screen to signify how many clips you have and how much of your allotted time they take up.

3. If you want to shoot your videos via your phone’s camera, you can also do that and then upload the clips to TikTok by clicking the “Effects” button and then the “Green Screen Video” option.

How to Add Pictures to a TikTok Video

If you want to add a picture to a TikTok video, you’re going to use roughly the same process as the video option.


1. Once you press your plus sign within the app to record, click the “Effects” button in the bottom-right corner, and click the “Green Screen” option. Click on the photo you want to use to upload it.
