2. Choose a theme

Several public themes are already available in our gallery.
Themes allow you to get different atmospheres for the same content. They ensure design consistency. Note that you can also contact us in order to activate the "Custom Themes" Add-on.

Our pre-created themes are all different and contain: 

  • animated cover: this is the first screen of your experience. In the background, you'll find a video or a picture. Over it, you can put an animated headline, a logo and a text area;
  • colors: each theme have a different color scheme, which will be applied on backgrounds, texts, borders, buttons, etc.;
  • effects: effects impact the way texts appear on the experience. Each theme has its own effects;
  • fonts.

... Plus, you can also create your own theme! Click here to see how. 

3. Customize your experience

Now, you can customize your Video Story's content. You can edit texts, pictures, videos, etc. A lot of components are available, click here to discover them all!

You can also add new screens with a simple click on the "+" in the Screen timeline. Note that screens' order can be edited in this timeline, dragging and dropping screens.

Please note that you cannot have content below limits if you want to publish your experience on social media: 

You can preview your experience in the "Preview" tab. 

4. Publish and share

Once your experience is ready to be shared with the world, publish it.
This will push the content online and it will be accessible through a URL (which you can customize). 

You'll also receive an email with files (one for each screen). Download these files and then upload them on Instagram.
