In Biteable, you can upload your own footage, image, logo, and music. As we know, when you add a handful of your own media to your Biteable projects, you're going to make an awesome video that is uniquely you. We love that! Read along to find out how best to add them in 🎨
There are multiple types of Footage you might want to use. It can be a video of your product or service, footage taken with a camera, or a recording of your screen to showcase an app or website.
For screen recordings, see our list of recommendations below:

When you have your footage ready, simply click Upload to load your footage in to Biteable. Be sure that it's less than 100MB in size, and in FullHD resolution. If your video is a bit too big, you can use compressors or trimmers like Online Converter and Online Video Cutter.
Please note that videos can only be placed on the background layer of the scene and you currently cannot add a video 'above' an existing background.
You can use screenshots to enrich a video and enhance your message.
If you use Windows, check out this link for a guide to use Snipping Tool.
If you use Mac, use this link to get to a guide to producing awesome screenshots natively.
To crop a small section out of your screenshot, find the crop button and focus on the section as needed.
Images are best loaded at 1080p resolution. Images can be put as background or as a layer above the background (logo). If you're using a Logo instead, aim for 1000px minimum.
To resize your image, Biteable has created our own tool! We highly recommend utilizing it first and foremost: https://biteable.com/tools/image-resizer/
We love to have our audience bopping their heads to the music in our videos! Be sure you are using royalty-free music to make sure your videos stay on the internet.
