Take a second to think: when was the last time you watched a YouTube video without a subscribe button image layered on top? Or a TikTok without a layer of a sound or music? It’s evident that adding images to your video immediately catches your viewer’s eye.

When you layer an image to a video, you’re combining multiple content mediums into one. This compels your viewers to be engaged with your video. Not only are your followers compelled, but you also attract new viewers. As more content is reposted across the web, adding an image like your brand logo raises more awareness as to who you are and what you do. When you add a picture to your videos, you’re giving your viewers a way to better visualize the message behind your content. You’re giving them a reason to come back and keep watching your content.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.
