How do I edit vertical videos for IGTV?

After you've captured great video content, it's time to make it all come together. There are a number of apps that you can use to directly edit your IGTV videos from your phone. Here are some recommended apps:

  • InShot. Add filters, stickers, text, and music to your edited videos for unique content. You can select the 9:16 canvas size to edit videos for IGTV.
  • Videoleap. Use the in-app tutorials to make the most of the features available in the app. Try the Chroma feature, or green screen, to remove the background from certain video clips. That way no matter where you film your content, your audience will focus on you.
  • VideoGrade. Edit the color of your videos to enhance the content. This app is optimized for retina displays and will help your videos look professional for viewers on any device.

If you're adding text to your video, make sure to avoid the top and bottom 20% of the screen. After editing your videos, you can upload them to your channel. You also have the option to save your content as a draft and publish when you're ready. Titles and descriptions can be edited and changed even after you've published your content. To make the most of each upload, make sure to include an eye-catching thumbnail that represents your video well.
