Getting Started

1. Select or upload footage

In order to create a meme, at least one clip or photo for your project needs to be in our editor. You can start from scratch by adding footage from our 100M+ video library. To add it to your project, simply click “USE” on any footage. You can also customize any template or upload your own video to get started.


2. Add text to your meme

Once you have chosen the footage you want for your meme, you can add your preferred text. Remember, memes are meant to be funny, so make sure your text is as engaging as your visuals. After you add your text, we recommend selecting the “MEME” or “DREAM MEME” text style to give it a real meme feel.


3. Customize your design

Next, it’s time to customize! First, choose the best aspect ratio for your meme. Then, drag to adjust the footage or photos to fit the frame. You can also choose your preferred font and colors and play around with the text placement and size. Remember to upload your brand’s logo to the outro for maximum visibility.
