How Do I Trim a Video in My Camera Roll?

If you have a video that needs trimming, chances are it’s already stored in your camera roll. Trimming a video can help you remove unwanted parts and create a more polished final product. In this tutorial, we’ll walk through the steps to trim a video in your camera roll.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

The first step is to open the Photos app on your device. This is where all of your camera roll content is stored.

Step 2: Select the Video

Once you’re in the Photos app, find the video that you want to trim and select it by tapping on it.

Step 3: Tap Edit

With the video selected, tap on the “Edit” button in the top right-hand corner of your screen. This will bring up editing tools for your video.

Step 4: Trim Your Video

To begin trimming your video, tap on the timeline at the bottom of your screen. You should see two yellow markers appear on either side of the timeline. These markers indicate where you can start and stop trimming.

To trim a section of your video, drag one of these markers to where you want to start or stop trimming. You can also use precision editing by dragging them along the timeline to specific spots in the video.

Once you’ve selected the portion you want to keep, tap “Trim” at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. Your trimmed clip will now replace the original clip in your camera roll.


  • If you make a mistake while trimming, don’t worry! The original clip is still saved in your camera roll.
  • You can also adjust audio levels or add filters and effects before saving or sharing your trimmed clip.


Trimming a video in your camera roll is a quick and easy way to edit your content and create a more polished final product. With just a few taps, you can remove unwanted parts and create a clip that’s ready to share with the world. Give it a try and see how easy it can be!
