How to put an emoji over a face in a video

Privacy is key, according to modern laws, one can’t share other people’s images without explicit consent. Does it mean you can’t take photos or record videos in public areas? Of course not.

It’s enough to cover the bypassers’ faces with still or animated emojis or video stickers. How to use emojis in other ways? For example, place them on the point you want to emphasize or just use them as decorations.

Clideo’s all-in-one video editor, being a platform-agnostic tool, is a perfect solution for such projects. With its help, you can add emojis to video on an iPhone, Android smartphone, laptop, or any other device connected to the internet.
