If you have recorded a video at TikTok and edited it, you don’t have to publish it directly; you can also save the video in the drafts first. The drafts are saved locally on the mobile phone, and accordingly, the video is not visible to others. Even if you can easily save a video in the drafts, the question often arises, how can you save the TikTok drafts in the gallery? Can I save the video without publishing it directly?
Save TikTok videos to the gallery.
If you post a video on TikTok, you can tick the box next to “Save in gallery” a few weeks before it is published. If you activate the switch, the video is not only posted on your own profile, but it is also saved as a copy locally on your mobile phone.
- First of all, you have to start TikTok, record a video, and edit it.
- Before you publish the video, you just have to activate the switch for “Save in the album” and then post the video.
When the video has been uploaded and posted, you should be able to find it in the gallery or album on your mobile phone.
Save drafts in the gallery.
At TikTok, there is currently no function with which you can save the saved drafts directly in the gallery. However, it is possible to use the function described above. On the one hand, you can post the draft publicly and, at the same time, save it in the gallery, or you can change the setting “Who can see this video” from “Public” to “Private” or “Only me.” The video will be posted, but will not be visible to others.
Location of the TikTok drafts
The drafts at TikTok are not saved in a specific folder as a video file, so you cannot currently copy them manually from the storage location if you want to save the drafts.
TikTok: Post video from recordings or gallery
Yes, you can publish videos that you have already recorded in the TikTok app. All you have to do is press the plus symbol in the app and open the camera view. In the current version of the camera view, you will find an “Upload” button to select and upload finished videos to the right of the record button.
- First of all, of course, you have to start the TikTok app and tap on the plus symbol in the menu bar at the bottom.
- There is an upload button to the right of the record button, and here you can select and post the videos from the gallery.
- You can also edit, trim and filter the video again before it is published.
By the way, sometimes, not all videos that you have saved on your mobile phone are displayed when you “upload.” The reason for this is either the wrong folder (the videos should be in the standard video folder) or the wrong video format. If you’re wondering how to get more views on my video after posting, don’t hesitate to buy TikTok shares.
Tip: With TikTok, you can also post video clips with several background songs by uploading videos from the gallery or the recordings.
