How to add transitions to photos (or between images)? If this is what you want to know but you don’t use Adobe Premiere, you can do it via mobile by Moldiv VideoLab. Here’s step by step how-to for you, to make a video by inserting transitions between still images.
Editor with Transitions & Motions
You may know Moldiv, a photo editor that is more famous for a beauty camera. There’s also Moldiv VideoLab which is especially useful to make a video by adding transitions between photos. Nowadays you can do professional video editing even via mobile apps instead of Adobe Premiere.
Although the feature that I’m going to explain how-to in this article is transition, Moldiv VideoLab is a kind of combined app with many features, like other apps (such as Picsplay) that are developed by JellyBus. So let’s check what you can do by VideoLab.
- General features including trim (various screen ratios), rotate, filter, color, brightness, etc.
- Add motion/zoom, texts or vignetting (out-focused clips) as well as transitions
- Also add a soundtrack from iTunes library
Steps to add transitions to photos
Then let me show you how to add transitions to photos step by step.
1. Download, open VideoLab and tap “+” to make a video.
2. Select screen ratio and photos that you want.
3. Each still image keeps 3 seconds by default. You can change it by tapping the image clip and “duration time” one after another.
4, 5. Tap transition and “+” (between image clips) one after another.
6. Select the transition effect you want (I applied “dissolve”). There aren’t many if you only use free version. But your photos or images are more important than transitions – simple effects are just enough. You can also change the duration time of transition (default is 1 second).
Finished! Save or share as you want. Like many other video editors, Moldiv VideoLab saves your projects (before making MOV or MP4) in “studio” so you can start with it next time.
We still have watermark problem with this app but it’s not a big thing. I usually have my images a bit marginal (and crop the final clip by other apps later) when I import them into VideoLab, though I forgot to do for this video. You can also consider upgrading which is not that expensive compared to Premiere.
Make a video with two still images
My final videos are far below. One is by the color palettes from Pantone Studio that I made for another blog article. The other is by my old collage. I made a filtered variation (by Photogrid) from the original image and inserted transition between two of them. As you see you can make it “move more” if you crop the original image on different position for the variation.
Now you know how to add transitions to photos! These days it’s not difficult to record videos thanks to mobile phone cameras. But many people have more photos than videos so it’s useful if you can make a video by inserting transitions between still images. StoryBoost has transitions as well so you can try it if you want.
