On the 16th of December, the social media platform rolled out updates to the camera and editing tools.

Videos in 1080p HD

TikTok-ers will now be able to upload videos in up to 1080p HD.

Creators can record or upload a video, click on “More options” and choose “Upload in HD” to get the best results.

This feature is, however, only available in selected countries. 

Visual Enhancement Button

The one-tap visual enhancement button will help improve exposure, produce better videos in low light, and correct colors.

All users need to do is record or upload a video and then tap “Enhance” on the right panel. If they wish to undo the changes, they can tap the button again.

Green Screen GIFs

Creators are really fond of the green screen effect. Now, their favorite feature is getting a neat new update - GIFs. 

TikTok announced its partnership with GIPHY, which aims to unlock new levels of creativity. Users will be able to choose from a vast library of GIFs and add them to their green screen.

New Sound Effects

In addition, TikTok has improved its sound effects. 

Creators can choose sounds from their videos and turn them into animal calls or musical instruments. For example, the sound can mimic a cat, a flute, or suona’s melody. 

After recording their video, users should go to the Editing page, tap on “Voice effects” and choose from the available sounds.

Teodora devoted her whole life to words – reading, writing and trying to be original on social media. She got certified in digital marketing but still feels she’s not cool enough to be an influencer. (We all disagree – she influences the team pretty well.) She finished a master’s degree focused in Literature, Publishing, Mass Media. Her hobbies include traveling, and reading. Teddy hopes that yoga will be the thing to finally teach her some patience and show her the path toward world domination. Maybe modern tech can also help her with that.
