WeVideo Basics - Powerful, Easy Online Video Editing
1. Account Basics
- Create a free account at www.wevideo.com. You can use, for example, your Facebook or Google credentials.
- After you've created a free account, you can upgrade to an Earlham account with special features.
- You'll be given an upgrade code by your faculty member.
- Or you can request a code from a librarian.
- Whatever route you take to get the code, enter it on your account page to obtain the Earlham license.
- If you plan to create a photo story and you want to use photos from the web, be sure to obtain high-resolution images with the "advanced search" image size search setting in Google Images. Wikimedia Commons and other image repositories have similar ways to limit your search to high-resolution assets.
