Did you know that TikTok allows you to create videos using photo templates that combine your own photos with various on-screen effects and music? Our guide will show you how this works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the TikTok application on iOS.

Step 1: On the TikTok camera screen, tap “Photo Templates” in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Swipe from right to left to preview all of the available photo templates, and move the one you want to use to the center of the screen.

Step 3: Tap “Select Photos” at the bottom of the screen. This will load your device’s photo gallery.

Step 4: Tap the circle in the top-right corner of one or more photos to select them based on the instructions at the top of the screen.

Step 5: When you’re done selecting photos, tap “OK” in the top-right corner of the screen.

From there, you can continue editing your video as normal before sharing it.
