Changing the duration of an image in Clipchamp is similar to the process of trimming a video clip. All images added to the timeline in Clipchamp will have a five-second duration by default. Here are the steps to adjust the duration of an image in your video.

Step 1. Select your image on the timeline

Select your image on the timeline. When selected, the image should be surrounded by a green highlight (as pictured).

Step 2. Drag sides to change image duration

Use your cursor and drag the sides inwards to shorten the duration of your image.

Step 3. Change the duration using the split and delete tools

To decrease the duration of your image to a specific time, use the Split and Delete tools. To start, drag the seeker to the exact spot you'd like your image's duration to end. Then, select the Split icon (scissors) to split your image.

Select the part of your image you no longer need and select the delete icon that looks like a trash can.
