The logo/image will appear in a standard location of the video (top left) and in the fixed size of 150 X 150 pixels. Adjusts the width and height to have the original logo size. Then use the X-Position and Y-Position sliders to place the logo wherever you want.
Done. You’ve already added the logo to your video. At this point you can proceed with the export of the video (by clicking on the EXPORT button). Or you can also add a textual watermark as described in the next paragraph.
How to Add Textual Watermark to Your Video
If you want to add overlay text to the video (text watermark), click the ENABLE TEXT OVERLAY check-box at the bottom left to activate the form below. In the “Watermark Text” field, write the text you want to add to the video.
Then place the text on the video using the X POSITION and Y POSITION sliders. You can also apply transparency to the text so you have a textual watermark that’s not too invasive.
Other text customizations are possible by changing the following parameters:
- Font Size: Text size
- Font Color: Text color (defaults to white)
- Font: font (default is set to Arial)
Step 4. EXPORT VIDEO WITH WATERMARK
The last step is to choose the format of the output video (from the drop-down menu in the upper left) and then click on the EXPORT button in the lower right corner.

During export you will see a “progress bar“. When it turns green it means that the video was successfully created. Search for and play the newly created video to check for the presence and quality of the watermark. Now you can share your video more freely by posting it on your website or youtube, or on any other social network.
