Steps To Save TikTok Draft Video To Camera Roll
You can save a TikTok draft to your camera roll on your mobile devices, and it is interesting to learn.
In addition, you can save these video drafts and delete them without ever showing them to other TikTok users. Let’s see the steps to do this from your Android or iOS devices.
Step 1: Launch TikTok
The first step to getting anything done on TikTok is to open the mobile application from your device. Navigate through the apps in the phone’s start menu and launch TikTok.
Step 2: Go To Profile
TikTok will take you to the For You page when it opens. The page will contain recommended content based on the kind of video content you watch and interact with the most, either from accounts you follow or others that are just related.
Click on the Profile icon at the bottom right of the For You page to go to your TikTok profile. If you cannot find the profile icon, you should sign in to your account first.
Step 3: Drafts
The profile page displays an overview of the information about you, a list of your published videos, and your unreleased videos so that you can access them for review, editing, or posting.
Click on the Drafts folder on the left side of this page. However, you may not see Drafts on this page if you have not saved any content as a draft. But if you can see it, tap it once to display your unpublished video content list.
Note that other people cannot see the draft folder when they check your profile; only you have access to it from your account.
Step 4: Select A Video
The list of videos in your Draft will display, and you can scroll through the list to select the video you intend to save to your camera roll by tapping on it when you find it.
Step 5: Next after Editing the video
The app will take you to the editing page when you tap on your desired content in the Drafts. Here the video will play automatically, and you can review or modify it as you wish.
Proceed with the steps to save the content if you do not want to edit it by clicking on the Next button at the bottom right of the editing page.
Step 6: Change The Privacy Settings
The interface of the next page suggests you want to post the video, but not to worry, you don’t have to post it to the public since your goal is to save it to your camera roll.
Now, tap the ‘Who can watch this video option, and the privacy settings menu will drop down where you can choose who will see the video. Select Only me from the options as you will see below:
It is essential to change this setting if you do not want other TikTokers to see the video, but you can skip it if you want them to.
Also, note that you should change this setting before posting other content you want to make public. Else, such content still will not be visible to the public.
Step 7: Toggle On Save To Device
Locate the save to device option on the page, and ensure the toggle next to it is on. Tap on it once to turn it on if it isn’t already.
Step 8: Tap Post
Click on the Post button at the bottom right of the right. You may wonder why you need to post the video or if you’re doing the right thing.
Of course, you are! You need to post the content before you can save it to your camera roll, but remember that no one can see the video except you since you changed the privacy settings to Only me. Therefore, clicking the post button here does not make much difference.
Step 9: Go To Profile
TikTok will post the content privately and take you back to the For You page. But, since you’re not done, click on the Profile icon as in Step 2 to continue.
Step 10: Tap The Lock Icon
Now in your TikTok profile again, tap on the lock icon under the ‘Edit Profile section to display locked or private videos.
Step 11: Select Video
You may have several videos in this section if you have posted more than one private video. Select the video you want to save from the list, and it will start playing.
Step 12: Select More
Tap the More button on the playing video page. You will find the dotted horizontal line at the bottom right part of the page. The More option lets you change a few things about the video, including the privacy settings.
Step 13: Save Video
You can save the video by tapping the Save Video button in the More options. The video save process will begin, and the progress bar will display in the lower part of the screen.
A ‘Saved‘ notification will appear on the screen when the process is complete, implying that you can now watch the TikTok draft in your camera roll.
However, the saved video will bear TikTok’s watermark with this method, but you can remove the watermark with a few options.
Remove Watermark From A Saved TikTok Draft
You can remove the watermark from a saved TikTok video by:
Cropping It out
Open the saved video from your device’s Gallery or Google Photos and crop it using the edit button. This method will change the video’s Aspect ratio, and it may not work for every video, or you may cut out relevant content in the video.
Using A Video Editing Tool
A more reliable way to remove a watermark from a TikTok video is to edit it with a video editing tool. You can also use a TikTok watermark remover app like SaveTok, TokSaver, TokSaver, etc., that you can download from your device’s app store.
You can download a clean TikTok video without a watermark, but you must first post the video to the public.
That implies that you cannot save a TikTok draft without a watermark but a video you posted to the public. If you want to do this:
– Change who can watch the video to Friends or Everyone before posting it.
– Go to your profile > select the video > click more > select copy link.
– Go to SnapTik
– Paste the URL into the field on the page.
– Tao Download and save it as MP4.
Contents in TikTok drafts will be lost when you delete the TikTok application. Therefore, there is no way to save drafts on TikTok after deleting the app. You can only recover published videos but not contents in the Drafts folder.
There is no official way to download TikTok drafts to a computer, but you can use some third-party applications though they may be risky and not always reliable. However, it is best to save the video to your phone and send it to your computer.
That is all on how to save a draft on TikTok to the camera roll. Post the video privately and open it from your profile. Then click on the More option before taping the save option, and it is done!
