With the rapid development of technology, Internet plays much more important roles in netizens’ working, studying, and entertainment. Many people are obsessed with making nice tutorial videos, creating funny videos, capturing game videos to share with friends. There is even a trend of putting their own face into a video to make it vivid and attractive. On this occasion, a few companies and dot-coms are emerging to offer proper software to accomplish video tasks. There are many ways to put your face in a video. I think we should just focus on ones that are the most user-friendly.

Two ways to put yourself in a video

Just superimpose your face onto the character and let the laughter begin. It is simple to do using JibJab, there are only a few simple steps to making your video and making everyone laugh.

Select your character, and select one image want to use (either from one of your galleries or use the webcam to take a new photo).


Use the cutout and get your face sized correctly. Set the eyes on the line, zoom the image in/out, and use the points around the outline to shape cutout.


Use the mouth cutout to align the points with the lips of the photo (this is to animate the singing of your photo). Press the “Animate” button to see if the movement is right, readjust until you get it how you want it.


Repeat the steps 1-4 for all of the characters in the video… then just watch and share.

  • Make sure the image you are uploading is either a JPEG or PNG file and lower than 8MB in file szie.
  • One new window should be appearing when you click the “Upload Image” button. Pop-up blocker must be off.

3. Mac OS: Put yourself in a game video

Gamers, not matter they are Windows users or Mac users, are always preferable to post their gameplay videos to YouTube in order to display cool skills and tricks of every race, level or victory. And it’s more creative and attractive to stream the gameplay with themselves in the video. However, many people can find a solution for Windows but there seem very few tools are available for Mac OS computer. Here I recommend Apowersoft Mac Screen Recorder and it can works on Mac perfectly.


Moreover, it was simple to add yourself into a video. Just like the windows version, you simply need to click the “camera” icon on the task tool bar when you choose “Region” mode to record. Compared with other ones, it is much safe and steady to use.
