When editing videos in Shotcut you may be wondering how to apply images over the top? In this article I explain how images can be used in a very similar way to video clips. I take you through everything you need to know to add images into the Shotcut video editor.
The easiest way to add images is to click and drag the image from your folder into the playlist. Watch this video to see how to do it:
I recommend using two different image file types;
These are both good file formats for images, generally associated with web design but also great for video editing. A JPG has slightly smaller file sizes but does not allow you to have a transparent background. A PNG on the other hand, is slightly larger, but does allow transparency. Depending on your requirements for your video, you may want to chose one or the other to show the image correctly.
