Birthdays are fun and exciting. And you can make them even more fun by making birthday videos. Whether it’s your own birthday, your little one’s birthday, your parent’s, or your friend’s, video can make it special and memorable. The thoughtfulness, effort, and love put into it speaks for itself.
How to make birthday videos with pictures and music
There’s no need for complicated software or video editing skills to make your own birthday video with pictures and music. Selfanimate has pre-made templates that you can customize as much as you need to right in your browser. Just go to selfanimate.com and follow these simple steps.
Select your template
In the Personal templates section under Make Video, browse the collection of video templates and choose the one you like. Click on Use Now to start customization. You’ll be prompted to log in or sign up (if you haven’t already). You can sign up with your Facebook/Google account or email and password.
You can completely change the look and feel of the template by customizing it to suit your unique taste.
Colors, Font, View
In the test frame, change colors, the font of the text, and the view of the video (landscape or portrait). These changes would be automatically applied to all the video frames; you can come back and change them again if you wish before producing the video.
Text and Images
Bring your birthday video to life with text and images. Preview each frame to make sure everything looks just like you want it to.
Tip: If you don’t have material for any placeholder in any frame, simply delete that placeholder by clicking on the dustbin icon (in case of text) or cross icon (in case of an image) beside it.
Tip: You can edit an image in the template editor by hovering over it and clicking on Modify.
Often for birthday videos, music is the best part. Select a track from Selfanimate’s collection or upload your own. You can also add a voice over of your own, and you know what that means. It’s time to sing ‘Happy Birthday to you…’ at the top of your lungs!
Produce and Share
When you’re satisfied with your work, click on Make Video Now to render it. Your video would be ready in a few minutes. You can download your video on your device, share instantly on social media, send it to people via email using the ‘scheduler’ feature, or copy the shareable link.
