What is Video collage (stories) and how do I use it?

PLEASE NOTE: that the icons and screens may differ slightly from the illustrations below depending on your device, operating system and theme.

Video collage makes you a master visual storyteller, letting you tell the bigger picture with your favourite videos and photos using the story function. Once you have chosen your photos and videos, you can then customise it with text and music to enhance the experience.

 

More information on the different camera modes available, can be found by visiting What are the different camera modes and how do I use them.
