It is also possible to add music to your video. You may find some music tracks in this app. However, they might not be royalty free and so you may need to include your copyright free music in your video.

After editing or making the changes, you can export the video in three different sizes:

  1. Quickest upload, best for email and small screens (960 x 540 pixel)
  2. Best for sharing online (1280 x 720 pixel)
  3. Longest upload, best for big screens (1920×1080 pixel)

To do so, you can click on the Export or share button and choose the size that you want.

Thus if you want very basic editing, you can opt for this tool. Previously, only Trim was available with this app. However, now you can do all the things mentioned above.

Search for people, places, and things using Photos app

Let’s assume that you have included 2000 photos in the Photos app and you want to pick out pictures related to only hill stations or your friend. Similar to some other advanced photo management software, you can do the same with Photos app as well. The Photos app may take even more time to add photos since it will categorize them into various places, things, people, and so on.

After importing all the photos, you can search for various keywords such as vehicle, baby, boat, hotel, sunset, dress, waterfall, building, etc.

You can also select a keyword by clicking the search bar.
