Free Video Stock Footage

15 Lists of Free Video Footage For Personal & Commercial Use in HD

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Video, Web

The demand for free stock videos or free video footage are always increase throughout the years though every one around the globe has the ability to shoot high quality videos with their smartphone. Unlike free stock photos that we can easily find in the ocean of internet, free videos are still far behind in term of numbers and quality.

Fortunately the increase of visual communications life style, be it for commersial or personal interest, such as social medias, contribute to its growth. Also thanks to the advancement in multi-cameras technology in mobile phone industry.

The questions are, can we really find free stock videos (short clip videos or video footage), that will meet our requirement? What is the level of quality they offer? Are they really free to use for personal & commercial? We found out some of it and list it down below.

Royalty Free Videos VS Free For Personal & Commercial

Free for Personal & Commercial Use Meaning

Really free to be use on personal project, such as own website, blog, presentation, etc. Also for commercial projects, advertising, etc. But bear in mind that some videos owner restrict the use to only one commercial project, some video owners impose the terms & conditions to use the free videos with Attribution to the owner. So make sure you read and understand their terms before you use for commercial project.

Only restriction for all types of Free for personal & commercial is, you CANNOT rent, license, sublicense, sell or redistribute those videos “as-is”. Unless you re-edit the medias to be a new work-of-arts, that’s different story. Still, you need to refer to the terms of use.

Royalty Free Videos Meaning

Stock video clips or footage that are under a Royalty Free license type, normally means you need to pay a one-time fee in exchange for the right to use the medias that was protected by copyright, patent, or trademark. this way you have the right to use for personal & commercial.

It may sound similar to Free for Personal & Commercial, but the advantages are, usually you get better package; higher quality (resolution), extra add on, full support for the medias and no Attribution needed. But still, you CANNOT treat the medias as you own property; to rent, license, sublicense, sell or redistribute those videos “as-is”. Unless you re-edit the media to make it a new work-of-arts or parts of your whole project. Always read and understand their terms, even though you paid for it.

Our priority in this review should consists of; Free to Download and to Use & High Definition (HD) quality at least..

Looking at their main page (home page), you may thought that all medias are free, until you proceed to the preview & download page, then you realize that the media you want to download labeled ‘Premium’, not free.. unlucky you 😅. Unless you browse to the top menu link categories to choose from ‘All Videos’, ‘Footage’, ‘Music’, etc.. then you can see all the medias labeled either ‘Free’ or ‘Premium’.

❌ The main page may tricked you because it didn’t show you which medias are free & which are paid.
❌ Even though you can see the ‘Free’ & ‘Premium’ labels in the category pages, you may still feel it hard to see the ‘Free’ contents among ‘Premium’, because they didn’t differentiate the Free label & Premium label by colors.

Video Editor For Windows  

10.  Windows Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker, a very familiar video editing software among Windows users since it was introduced with Windows XP integration. This free video editor was pre-installed in the Windows operating system until 2017, which is, Windows 8 as the last known OS version. Then it was discontinued by Microsoft. The OS company decided to replace it with the new app called Windows Photo & Movie Editor in Windows 10. However, for some of you who prefer the Windows Movie Maker instead of the new one, you can still download it from third party provider below.

11.  iMovie

A well known free video editor for iOS platform – iMovie let you use it on your Mac PC, iPad, iPhone or you can sync among all your iOS gadgets. iMovie is one of the featured app in Pixpa’s top video editing apps.

We would also like to add the famous, an easy to use Wondershare Filmora free video editor in the list above. But it does not meet our ‘no watermarked’ requirement, as we mentioned earlier. Unless you don’t mind to have your video output to have watermarked by Filmora. Besides that, it’s an intuitive free video editing software with user & beginner friendly and a lot of ready made effects.

In conclusion, there are actually many more free video editors you can find out there. But as we said earlier, we list down some of the best in the class of free to use, no limitation, no watermarked, acceptable editing features and as well as good export quality. Moreover, the most important thing, every user can get the jobs done, satisfactory.

Anyway, we feel the need to share an another category, the free online video editor. These are apps that you don’t even need to install on your system but, use it online instead. Maybe we will cover one by one in our next post, hopefully :)

Great Images Improve Sales

5 Ways Great Images Improve Sales

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Web

Great Images Improve Sales

As a business, you will want to attract as many customers as possible to your brand. Therefore, using high-quality photos of your products can be a great way to increase sales. How your images look can make a huge difference and will be the determining factor in how many sales you make. Customer satisfaction should be your number one priority, so here are five ways great images can improve sales.

Make Your Images Stand Out

When a customer is on your page, the product image is typically one of the first things that they will see. Therefore, you need to use eye-catching images to get buyers hooked from the get-go. The better-quality images you use, the more chance you have of securing more interest in your business. Therefore, refrain from using your iPhone to take pictures. Instead, use a professional camera that can enhance your images. If you need help with an Amazon PPC campaign and want to know how better images can help your business, get Amazon PPC specialists to review your strategy. The team can help build your brand and help to increase sales.

Give Buyers Multiple Perspectives

To attract more sales, you will need to give customers a variety of angles of a product. Buyers want to see how a product looks from every angle. To do this, you can either upload multiple images or set up 360-viewing. If you go with the former option, a great tip to keep in mind is either using a hover to enlarge feature or a popup box that goes through every image (with the thumbnails of the product in a row at the bottom).

Up Close and Personal

In day to day life, we don’t tend to hold products right up to our eyes. However, buyers want to inspect what they are purchasing, so it’s important to include a zoom feature on your photos so customers can get up close and personal with a product to see what sort of condition it’s in, as well as any special features that it may contain. If you use a poor-quality camera, the picture will become grainy once zoomed in, so it’s essential that you invest in the latest technology to see the best results.

Show How the Product Works

While fantastic images are essential, how they are presented can make a big difference. For example, if you are selling headphones, you should have them placed in a person’s ear, rather than discarded on a surface. Letting customers know how your products work can not only increase more sales but gives them an idea of what to expect. Who you include in your photos can also make a huge difference, too. If you are selling a sofa, your buyers want to know what sort of demographic it is best suited for. Whether it is a sofa for the family or a bachelor pad, including the right models in the photo is important.

Keep Perspective and Scale in Mind

Buyers want to know that what they are purchasing is exactly what is shown on the tin. If you are selling a smartphone, for example, you should take a photo of it next to similar objects, so the customer can get a better idea of its size. While there are certain tools and techniques that you can use to enhance an image (such as a filter), it’s important not to fool the buyer into purchasing a product. You should be honest with what you are selling, so keeping size and dimension in mind is key. You can use software such as Photoshop to scale down an image.

Having images that stand out and are of high quality may be all you need to drive more interest to your business. Customer attention span can be short, so you will want to include images that are eye-catching from the get-go. Make sure that buyers can zoom in and examine photos to help improve sales.

Actually, the integration of these 3 apps – Photo Editor, Collage Maker & Design Editor make it a perfect free online graphic editor you must bookmark.

  • Registration / Login : Not necessary, can save without register / login.
  • Text, Fonts availability : Yes
  • Alignment Guide : No
  • Pro : ✔️ Support fonts from local pc. Use & Save your artwork without register needed.

9.  piZap

piZap Free Online Photo Editor

PiZap is one of the must try free web based graphic editor, it offers a few different graphic purposes, besides Photo Editor, Collage maker & Design editor, it also provide graphic editor for specific Photo Touch Up, Emoji Maker, Facebook Cover, Twitter Cover & YouTube Cover. These are great for users looking for various purposes. The Photo Editor also has few additional creative tools, such as Touch Up – for photo fine tune, while Cut Out Tool – to crop image by shape (similar to Photoshop Extract), the Meme – to generate meme image, and the Paint & Graffity – just basic and not impressive. After trying some adjustment, texting, stickers, unfortunately we cannot find undo function, instead we have to delete one by one elements on the artwork. This can be annoying to most of the user.

The Design Editor at the other hand, you can try the new (beta) HTML5 based engine of the classic Flash based editor. The interface seems same as the Photo Editor and even most of the function looks similar. What makes it differ is when you start the Design Editor, you need to choose the template size for specific task.

  • Registration / Login : No need, can save without register / login.
  • Text, Fonts availability : Yes
  • Alignment Guide : No
  • Pro : ✔️ Plenty of photo adjustment tools. Offers 20% Affiliate Program on every subscribe for paid version.

10.  Fotoramio

Fotoramio Best Free Online Photo Editor

Fotoram!o or Fotoramio also offers 3 types of editor named Edit (Photo Editor), CollageArt Style. At first I guess the Edit is the design editor and the Art Style I guess is the photo editor, but it’s not, the Art Style is more to just for ‘playing with ready made effect’, unfortunately I cannot find the undo for the effect applied. Anyway, the free Photo Editor interface seems clean and easy to use, with adjustment tools docked at the bottom of the screen. It offers many standard image adjustments, text, effects and cliparts as well.

  • Registration / Login : No need, can save without register / login.
  • Text, Fonts availability : Yes

  • Pro : ✔️ Easy to use photo adjustment tools. All tools & features are free, no locked elements.

12.  PicMonkey (7 days Trial)

PicMonkey Online Photo Editor

When we tried PicMonkey Photo Editor for the first time, without register & login, we feel that the interface looks pleasing, easy to use graphic & adjustment tools even for newbies or for non graphic users. While we keep on trying most of the intuitive functions it offers, we found out that using PicMonkey Photo Editor is not really free. Yes we notice the yellow button with Free Trial label on the top right of the editor screen, but we think that’s optional package for upgrade or premier version, like Pixlr Pro and Ribbet Premium upgrade as we discussed earlier. We’re wrong to assume that we may save the artwork without register.

Anyway, you have given 7 days trial to use it for free and can save, share & export your masterpiece, before you need to decide whether to upgrade as paid user of not. For that reason, we suggest you to try the 7 days trial to test drive it.

  • Registration / Login : No need when using, but.. must register & login (upgrade) when you need to save your artwork, (use free 7 days trial)
  • Text, Fonts availability : Yes, comprehensive text adjustment features.

Polarr offers 2 types of free online photo editors, which, 1 is for newbie or non-experience graphic users named Express, another 1 is for experience users who have been familiar with common graphic apps or for designers, named Pro. Polarr Express has basic features while the Polarr Pro provide professional style of free online photo editor with detail adjustment you can find for every Filters available. Polarr Pro interface is seems clean with Filters, Text & Shape, Retouch, Crop (+ Rotate & Flips) & Overlays tool at the left side. While at the right side you’ll see the Adjustments tool and Selective Adjustments to modify your image’s color & tone settings.

There are so many adjustments you may see and to choose from based on your creativity and how you going to works on it. These very detail adjustments that need professional skill to get your image as perfect as you intended. You may probably think that this free app is much harder than Photoshop. However, the app provides on the screen animated helps on How To Do It for you, for most of the tools you going to use, good point.

Extra Features

The Text tool has what a design editor has for editing the text attribute, not too basic as what offered with other apps. Aside from that Polarr Pro also has Preset under the Text tool, to create ready made ‘template with text’, but there are just a few in this free version. There is also a History tool with number marked at it showing that how many steps you have done, for selective undo.

14.  Lunapic

Lunapic Free Online Photo Editor

Lunapic interface looks like it was made from web 1.0 or the 90’s style of website, but it worth to try though. The tools at the left side looks like Photoshop tool icons, but the light grey background interface make it looks like Ms. Paint icons. After we make some editing test, we found out that the operation also seems the old-school way. For example, when you need to make some adjustment, it will open the adjustment value settings in ‘Windows 95 fill in the form’ style and a button to apply the adjustment. Then the screen will refresh every time it make changes. Actually Lunapic doesn’t need you to have Flash to run this free online photo editor in your browser.

Even though the interface and the operation runs in classic way, it does have a lot of features. Besides standard image adjustments & transforms you can find in the left tools or top menu, it provide a lot of extra features, from Draw, Borders, Filters, Effects, Art even gif Animation features you can find in this classic photo editor.

It looks simple and straight forward and not much we can say, the tools are just standard image editing tools plus Borders, Filters & Effects you can apply. Even though the interface of the app seems 1 or 2 level better than Lunapic, but it lacks in variety of features that offered by Lunatic that has more ready made features.

  • Registration / Login : No need, you can use & save without register / login.
  • Text, Fonts availability : Yes, standard text editing.
  • Alignment Guide : No.
