Alternatively, you can simply drag and drop the files you want to use to the working area right from the folder in which they’re stored. Once you’ve added your media files, place them in the order you want them to appear in the finished video.
To add exciting filters to your photos, just click the Filters tab. Choose the filter you prefer and drag it to the photo you want to use it with. Once you’ve done that, the filter will be automatically applied to the photo. You can apply multiple filters from different categories to one image.
To remove a filter from a photo, click the star button on the photo, choose the filter you want to delete, and press Remove. Now you can apply another filter or leave it as it is.
