You have captured a family video to record the happy moments and want to share it online. But some of your family members don’t want strangers to see them. So what would you like to do? Want to send a photo to your friend. Unfortunately, it contains something private that you don’t want to show him. While, how do you protect your privacy?

Actually, these problems are very easy to over come. You just need to cover the improper image or private information with mosaic, then all the annoyances are disappeared. However, many people still don’t know how to add mosaic to videos and pictures. So today in this article you will be taught how to apply this useful effect to your videos and pictures with the easiest method.
