Vertical, Square, Horizontal… there are so many formats for our media nowadays! It’s hard to know what format you need when going into content capture mode. Good thing we can transfer between platforms and formats! In this Tutorial Tuesday video I’ll show you three ways to turn your vertical photo (this would work for vertical videos too, you know!) into something that can be shown in a horizontal video for Final Cut Pro X.
Ever post a video to Facebook, forget where it is on your devices and now want to put it somewhere else? If the video is yours, it’s super easy to re-download it! (This includes Facebook Lives you did but forgot to save) Stay Inspired! Katie
I went live at Dragoncon for my Vlogs On Saturdays – but couldn’t share the live to my business page!

If you have this problem and want to fix it – here’s the answer! Tutorial starts at 1:00! Otherwise I’m explaining what this problem is and why it is troublesome. Stay inspired friends! Katie
I got asked a question about posting videos to Instagram. It was about that vague- I mean, there are FOUR main ways to post videos to Instagram, which way did they mean? In true Katie-style, when the choice is “big” or “home” we choose big. SO. Here are the four ways to post videos to Instagram and how to do each way. Plus a little bit of narration, chatting, philosophy, etc etc along the way.

“I don’t want to do a video, my space is a mess” I get this a lot. And I get it! I look back on old videos where I “Just did it” because I was being pressured (Hi Sandi. 😉 ) and while it was good to get the video out there, I cringe at my background. How messy and unprofessional! There have been times where I too, have declined to do a video because my background was just SO not compelling. Ugh! So how do we rectify our feelings about our surroundings and our feelings about our videos? I know someone (*cough* Sandi, I’m looking at you again!) would …
In 2016, Digiday reported that 85% of Facebook video is watched without sound. Insert captions! You’ve watched plenty of videos with captions. Some of them you can choose to put on, some of them are a part of the video file itself, and some of them automatically appear like when you are scrolling your news feed on Facebook. This video will show you how to put the ones onto your facebook videos in the EASIEST MANNER. (Because as mentioned, there ARE other ways but they are more difficult and take longer). Hope this helps!
For so long, I’ve manually typed in my description for each video, and while, as you can see now, I’m typing in something unique, I would have to re-think and re-research and re-type certain things for the video. Like my website and email etc etc. It was time consuming and not efficient. What IS efficient, is to have an automatic and consistent description that gets all the important information to you, but also makes me look that much more professional and put together. 😉 Now you can appear that way too. Stay inspired, muh peeps! Katie
I’ve been on a crusade to turn my mementos digital, thus solving the problem of having way too much clutter due to nostalgic items. Along the way, I found 5 micro cassette tapes from 2005 – mostly recording my little sister Molly (she’s 13 now – see below) as a baby. I knew I had them, but kind of ignored them as there didn’t seem to be an easy solution to digitizing them. Until today! Scanning in some old documents (old notes from my original video tape recordings -yes, I’ve always been thorough it seems) I found the tapes and decided today was the day! I searched on the internet,…
Ag! Did this video awhile back, but never shared it on here. Mostly because I’ve been having problems with this website. Grrrr… Anywho! This is a cool feature on the iPhone and can assist you in making tutorial videos, especially if you have to demo an app, or show someone how to access something on their phone.
