If you’ve been scrolling through TikTok’s For You Page (FYP) lately, you may have noticed a wave of users posting captivating photo slideshows. This latest trend, known as Photo Swipe, has taken TikTok by storm as creators rush to experiment with stitching together multiple images. In this article, we will guide you through the process of making eye-catching photo slideshows using the new beta-test feature called ‘Switch to Photo Mode’ in TikTok’s video editing menu.
How to Master the Photo Swipe on TikTok
Jumping on the Photo Swipe trend is incredibly easy. Before you start, make sure you have the pictures you want to include in your slideshow saved in your device’s gallery. Once you’re ready, open the TikTok app and tap on the create (+) button to begin uploading a new video. In the bottom right corner of the screen, tap the “Upload” icon.
Click the Upload button to access your phone’s gallery.
Next, a selection menu will appear, showcasing all the videos and photos stored on your device. If you haven’t granted TikTok access to your phone’s gallery, you might encounter an issue at this stage.
If everything is in order, navigate to the “Photos” tab and select the images you wish to use in your slideshow. As you make your choices, you’ll notice the selected photos appearing as tiny blocks beneath the selection screen.
Keep in mind that the order you select the pictures will determine their appearance sequence in the final slideshow. You can rearrange the images by tapping and dragging them around. Additionally, you have the option to remove pictures by clicking the “X” icon in the corner of each image.
Select the photos you want to include in your photo slideshow.
Once you’re satisfied with your selection, click “Next” and then choose “Switch to Photo Mode.” Here, you can further enhance your slideshow with voiceovers, music, filters, or effects. After making all the necessary edits, tap the “Next” button to post your photo slideshow to your TikTok Story.
Pro Tip: For a seamless viewing experience, use photos with similar resolutions. See the example below to get an idea of what your end product could look like.
Drag and arrange the images to customize your slideshow’s order.
If the Switch to Photo Mode option is not available on your TikTok app, you may need to update your app through the Google Play or App Store. If you still can’t access the feature, you’re likely not part of the beta-testing group. But don’t worry; the photo slideshow feature should be available to everyone soon.
That concludes our guide on how to create captivating photo slideshows on TikTok. Once you’ve crafted your masterpiece, don’t forget to share it with the vibrant TikTok community.
