How does the Collage theme work?

2 min. readlast update: 10.17.2023

A Collage theme takes screenshots from submitted photos and video clips to create collage-inspired background scenes. 

VidDay offers three variations of the Collage theme — light, normal, and dark. The three versions of the theme work the same; the only difference is the background scenes' brightness. 

If you don't want to use a Collage theme, VidDay offers other video themes that don't have photos in the background scenes — like Gift Wrap, Watercolor, Floral, or Simple.

Can I control the background scenes?

The order and arrangement of the background scenes are random (photos/stills that appear further down the media gallery may be used earlier as part of the background). You can't specify the collection of photos placed behind a featured photo or video clip.

You can omit individual video clips and photos from being used for the backgrounds. 

If you do not want to use an image or video clip for the background scenes, you can toggle a button to remove it. Click on the specific thumbnail you want to exclude and toggle the button seen below. 

Our Suggestions

To achieve the best results with a Collage theme, we suggest uploading plenty of photos. A good rule to follow is to upload 3 photos for every 1 video clip.

If you have lots of photos, we suggest excluding all video clips from the background collage scenes.

This theme still works with only video clips, but there's a chance that screenshots taken from a video clip will not look the best. There could be screenshots with unflattering close-ups and people blinking.

It's also best to exclude photos with text as they can be too distracting.
