New TikTok Editing Tools Inspire Creativity

TikTok Editing Tools

Many of the most captivating videos on TikTok, from carefully edited recipes to tutorials and daily vlogs, are created by talented storytellers who express their creativity with every cut, clip, and transition. The new TikTok editing tools have introduced a variety of improved creations and a broader scope of what’s possible with TikTok content.

The new editing tools, which are now available in the United States and most other regions around the world, enable people to have more creative freedom, share richer stories, and bring their content ideas to life across formats.

Enhanced TikTok editing tools for powerful storytelling

TikTok’s improved editing tools enable you to easily adjust clips, sounds, images, and text in a new editing environment, all while remaining within TikTok’s creative flow. You will have the ability to:

  • Clip editing includes stacking, trimming, and splitting video clips.
  • Cut, trim and adjust the duration of sounds.
  • Text can now be edited, positioned, and the duration can be set more easily.

Include overlays: Add photo and video overlays for picture-in-picture (or video-in-video) stacking.

Change the video speed: Change the speed of video clips.

Content of the frame: Individual clip frames can be rotated or zoomed in and out.

Include sound effects

The media giant is looking forward to seeing how an improved editing experience powers storytelling and makes video creation more intuitive and accessible, making it easier than ever to create great content.

Photo Mode allows you to express yourself

Tiktok released Photo Mode, a new carousel format available on mobile for photo content that’s ideal for sharing high-quality images on TikTok, for when you’d prefer to express yourself in formats other than video. Photo Mode allows you to share carousel posts of still images that appear one after the other. You can use music to accompany the images, which viewers can scroll through at their leisure.

With Photo Mode, the company asserted that they had already seen incredible creativity from the community, with slideshows featuring artwork, fashion diaries, photography, and more.

Provide more detailed descriptions

You can now pair your Photo Mode videos and content with longer descriptions of up to 2,200 characters per post. The company hopes that with the extra space, creators will have more room to expand on the stories they’ve shared in videos or Photo Mode, giving them another space to express themselves and connect more deeply with others.


TikTok clearly understands that people use a variety of formats to express themselves on TikTok; they will continue to build experiences that give more freedom to the community to create in various ways – from videos to LIVEs, photos, text, and more.
