How to do the TikTok challenge

The picture should have the full body of the character and they should be facing to the side.

You will have to cut out this character from the picture. Use the “Cut out” function of Picsart which makes photo editing seem like a piece of cake even for beginners. Use the function Restore and Erase to make sure that the edges look smooth.

Once the character has been cut out, use effects to turn it into a shadow. For this, go to ‘Effects’, proceed to ‘Colours’ and completely darken the picture.

Go to TikTok to find the perfect sound to match your video. Find a place where having a silhouette looks realistic and shoot your video. A doorway or a window works best for this. Shoot the video until the end of your music so that the editing can be easier later.

In your last frame, add your character cut out and adjust it based on your surroundings. Then use the green screen effects to make your trending TikTok video.
