How to make a YouTube video.

Start by creating a new project with Adobe Express.
Start a new project to open a slide-based editor. We suggest storyboarding your YouTube video story within the app by selecting one of the preloaded story structures or creating your own.
Add media to the slides.
Choose between images, video clips, icons, or text. You can search for free photos within Adobe Express or use your own. Add up to 30 seconds of video at a time to each slide. We recommend using short video clips or images to represent your message visually.
Select pre-designed layouts.
Present your media in a variety of layouts by selecting one of the pre-loaded placements from the Layouts tab.
Use text to communicate key information or calls to action.
Adding on-screen text to your video enhances your messaging. You can also add voiceover to your video by hitting the red button and speaking into your phone or computer.
Add music with a theme and soundtrack.
Adobe Express comes pre-loaded with themes that control the overall look and feel of your YouTube video. Themes power transitions between slides and the motion of elements. Select the Themes category to choose from unique themes. You can also add music by uploading your own track or selecting one of the free audio tracks in Adobe Express.
Publish and share.
Sharing your completed YouTube video is a great way to boost visibility and viewership. Save your video directly to your device or copy the link to share it online. Post the video on your social media platforms, YouTube channels, blog, or send it by text or email. Adobe Express makes it easy to showcase your creations through whatever channels you desire.

Customize your YouTube video even more.

Your YouTube video is saved to your Adobe Express project organizer so that you can edit it at any time. Change themes, music, images or text, and add or delete slides as needed. For tips and design advice, visit the Adobe Express blog and tutorials or browse the inspiration gallery for ideas.
