What is a video collage?

A video collage is a fun way to display a collection of videos or images (or both!). Add some music to really bring it to life. Video collages let you portray lots of messages in a short space of time, perfect snack-able content for social media.

Why create a video collage?

Video collages allow you to show multiple video clips without needing to edit them together. They’re fun, engaging and visually interesting. They can also cut down on run time by conveying multiple messages in a short amount of time.

They’re perfect for creating mood boards, to share new ideas or top tips. To showcase a new collection or highlights from an event.

4.Choose a background color or image

If you’re not using a template, then now’s the time to select your background, you can pick a block color or gradient. Or use an image, choose one from the image library or upload your own.
