Spread love and happiness with a Valentine’s Day video

/ Nitesh Dutt

Why buy a card on Valentine’s Day when you can send a video? It’s an easy way to spread love and joy on that particular day. Don’t feel heartbroken if you’ve never created a video before; with WeVideo, it’s simple and quick. All you need is creativity, a willingness to have fun and love in your heart (that sounded cheesier than I anticipated).

You’ll need a WeVideo account to help you create a video. Don’t have one? Sign up for FREE, or pick a plan and log in.

Start from scratch or choose a Valentine's video template My Video 4

From your Dashboard, click Browse all > Library > Seasonal, and choose a template to work with. Customize and make it your own by uploading and using your own images, videos and changing the text and sound effects to your liking. Once you have it the way you like it, skip to the end and export your finished video.

Not sure how to get started and need a little inspiration? Give one of WeVideo’s customizable Valentine’s Day templates a try. Templates come complete with audio, sound effects and text. 

Not using a template? From your Dashboard, start a new edit and choose from one of three formats (square, horizontal or vertical).

Upload your media

Importing your media to WeVideo is simple. Upload directly from your computer or import from sites like Dropbox, Google Drive, Facebook, Instagram and more! If you’re using a mobile device, upload photos and videos using the WeVideo app for iPhone or Android. From there, you can continue your edit using our full-featured, cloud-based web app on your laptop or desktop.

Put things in motion with animation

The easiest way to add motion to your videos is with the Ken Burns Effect. This is simply taking a photo in your timeline and panning and zooming which creates the effect of a camera recording footage. After dropping photos into your timeline, you can add the Ken Burns Effect to each individually or all photos simultaneously.

Add motion titles for text

Choose from one of WeVideo’s Valentine’s Day-themed motion titles (hearts, cupid, everything adorable!) or from one of the many others in our library. Add single or multiple layers of text to your video to send your message.

Hit the right note

Every WeVideo account comes with a library of music. Use this to your advantage and add music that’ll pull on the heartstrings of anyone who watches. With a Professional plan, choose from over 1 million audio, image and video files in our stock library.

You did it! You’ve uploaded your videos and photos, add motion titles, some music and effects, now your Valentine’s Day masterpiece is complete. All that’s left is choosing your resolution and exporting directly to your Google Drive, YouTube or elsewhere. Once exported you can download and share your video with a link, embed it on your website, share on social media or send it to someone you love.
