Tiktok can be fun and addictive. Perhaps you have seen your friends making cool videos there. You have the app but not sure how to start?
Here’s a quick 5-step guide to help create your first Tiktok video within minutes. Get your phone and get started:
Assuming you have already created your account and logged in, follow these steps
You will see a bunch of things to do on your screen with a random video playing already. This is a trending video on Tiktok that plays on default. Leave that for now.
Tap on the ‘+’ icon in the bottom center to create a video. The camera opens up for you to record. You will only get a 15 or 60 seconds window (bottom of the screen). Make the most of it.
Before starting, you can select a song by tapping on ‘pick a song’ option on top. Make an interesting choice.
Here comes the coolest part. The right bar on the screen shows a few features you can play with. From Filters, effects, beauty effects, choose the ones you like. Since you are just starting, you can leave out the speed option for now as this can be used in many fun ways once you are acquainted.
Tap on the red record button and keep it pressed for recording. It stops shooting when you leave. You can also place it on a timer of 3 or 10 seconds if you want to record hands-free.
After filming, click on the red tick to save the video.
In case, you want to repost other Tiktoker’s videos, install a Tiktok video downloader and download the videos in your device.
You can make necessary edits after that.
Put a catchy caption and relevant hashtags within 150 characters limit.
Congratulations. You just made your first Tiktok video!
