    The easiest way to find a video clip is by tapping the "Photos" icon
    .
    The icon is, basically, a white square with a color wheel and the icon says "Photos". We give it a tap. Once we give it a single tap, we will be given the option to choose an album. There are "All Photos", "Favorites", "Videos", etc.

    Let's tap "Videos", as we are looking for video clips
    .
    We will see a series of different videos that we have taken. We need to select a video. One we've selected a video, we can edit it.

  6. 6
    We tap a video
    .
    We will get into the movie, and we will see the content of the clip. For example, we need to shorten 22 seconds of the video with a boy to 10 seconds where he is sniffing flowers. In order to edit and fix that quickly and easily, we're going to tap either of the black markers. There is one on the left and one on the right on top of the screen.

Questions and Answers

How do I trim a few seconds out of a video clip?

I have a 1:50 video clip, and I'm trying to cut just a couple seconds; but the smartphone won't trim the part I need to cut out; it tells me to trim the original video or save the video as a new clip; and when I do that, the smartphone completely cuts the whole video out and keeps only the part that I don't want. I have tried: I have done it more than once. I think it was caused by: A new update, maybe.
