How to Add Text to TikTok Videos
To add captions to a Tiktok video, open the TikTok app on your smartphone. Tap the ‘ icon + ‘ at the bottom of your screen.
Now start recording as usual, and once done, tap ‘red tick‘ in the lower right corner of your screen. Alternatively, you can also select a video from your device storage if you want to edit the already recorded video.
You will now be taken to the editing page of the app. Tap ‘Text‘ in the lower left corner of your screen.
Now enter the text that you want to add to your video, for example: TESTING.
Once added, choose a text style by selecting and scrolling the suggestions at the bottom of your screen. You can also select the alignment by tapping on the icon on your left.
If your text is not showing properly, use the background option in the left corner of your screen to add a background to your text.
Once done, tap ‘Done‘ in the top right corner of your screen.
The text will now be visible on your video, tap on it, and select ‘Set duration‘.
Now you see the timeline for your video at the bottom of your screen. The timeline will have a red overlay that will define the duration and location of your text. First, start by dragging overlays from both ends to determine how long you want your text.
After setting the duration of the text, tap and hold red overlay to select it. Once selected, simply drag it to the position where you want the text to appear.
Tap ‘tick‘ in the bottom right corner to save your changes. After that, just post it to TikTok. Finished.
