Creating video from photos and music saved in the phone's memory can be easy with the help of free apps for Android and iPhone (iOS). The necessary resources are offered by software such as VideoShow, InShot and Quik, from GoPro, which allow you to add texts, music as a soundtrack and effects such as frames, stickers and animations to enhance the images. The tools are useful to create romantic clips, slideshows and tributes for friends to post on social networks, such as Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp.
O TechTudo brought together five publishers available for download on the App Store and Google Play Store. All options are in Portuguese and create videos in an easy way, which display a preview of the result so that the user can edit the clip the way they prefer. Check out the list below and discover the best app options.

VideoShow is one of the most popular editing software Photo: Rodrigo Fernandes / TechTudo
One of the most famous apps in the segment, VideoShow is a video editor that creates slideshows easily. After selecting the images, you can reorder them in the sequence you want. In addition, it is also possible to change the display speed of each file. The service does not limit the number of photos to be used and allows longer and more detailed videos to be created.
The editing tool provides various effects to make videos more personalized, such as frames, transition animations, texts with various colors and fonts, stickers, GIFs, in addition to offering pre-defined themes. Among the sound effects that can be added, are complete songs exported from a gallery of their own or from the user's music service, such as Apple Music, in addition to voiceovers and other types of sounds.
One of the negative points of the service is the presence of a watermark with the logo of the app, applied to the bottom corner of the videos created in the free version. To remove it, I need to sign the full version, which costs from R $ 84.90.

With VivaVideo, the user can create clips with photos and videos from the phone's memory, and even export files from Facebook and Instagram. The user can select predetermined themes like "Birthday", "Love", "Friendship" and "Summer" and add specific visual effects and soundtracks according to the approach. However, it is possible to create a video from scratch and add your own effects to make it even more exclusive.
During editing, you can adjust the length of the video, use filters, crop images and insert transition effects between one photo and another. The app provides a catalog with songs suitable for use as a soundtrack, but the user can download other tracks from the Internet and still use songs from the phone's memory or from iTunes.
In the end, the user will be able to save the video in several formats, including Full HD. The clips also display a watermark with the application's logo. To remove it, I need to pay for the VIP plan, which starts at R $ 40.99.
In addition to collages, PhotoGrid also creates videos with photos from the gallery Foto: Reproduo / Rodrigo Fernandes
In addition to making collages, PhotoGrid also creates videos with photos from the cell phone gallery. The editor has a nice layout, which makes editing slideshows easier. When editing images, it is possible to adjust the traces of brightness, such as brightness, contrast and saturation, to apply colorful effects and filters, in addition to animated transitions and patterned frames.
The music section allows you to add international songs as a video soundtrack. The service catalog is extensive and divided between several genres, such as "Pop", "Instrumental", "Electronics" and "Rock". The user can also send music saved in the phone's memory or stored in Google Drive, Google's backup software. Unlike competitors, PhotoGrid does not display its logo on the videos, which leaves the image clean and without advertising.

InShot allows you to create clips from photos and videos saved in the phone's gallery. If the image is smaller than the video format, the app creates a degraded background to not leave the image without proportion, but it is possible to determine any size to suit social networks. During editing, it is possible to add mirrored filters, neon effect or drawing strokes. It is also possible to insert text and animated stickers to increase the personalization of the audiovisual file.
The app allows you to add sound effects, audio recordings captured by the microphone and music, which can be sent from the app's catalog, device memory or iTunes, in the case of the iPhone. The service also creates non-watermarked videos for free which makes it a good option for users who prefer files without visual interference.
GoPro's Quik app creates videos with images from the gallery Foto: Reproduo / Rodrigo Fernandes
Quik is GoPro's video editor, but you don't need a camera from the manufacturer to use it. With the program it is possible to create clips with photos saved in the phone's memory. After selecting the files, the user can select pre-established themes to create his slideshows, with different transition styles between photos, all with a touch of modernity, which resemble animated collages.
Each theme has a specific soundtrack, but the user can change it by choosing the different tracks in the application's catalog. The service also allows you to change the opening text of the videos, apply colored filters and determine the duration of display of each image on the screen. At the end of the editions, those interested can save the file on their cell phone or share it directly with social networks. The video displays its logo at the end of the video.
