4 tips for watermarking videos

Here are some easy tips on how you can use an online video editor to watermark your videos.


Opt for a small watermark

Add a watermark to the bottom right section of the video frame to avoid covering up the whole video. A watermark logo works best in this case.


Keep the background transparent

Make sure that you upload your watermark in a PNG format with a transparent background. Otherwise, it will cover up the whole video!


Create custom watermarks

Adding watermarks that have been customized using your brand's colors, logos, and fonts will help boost brand recognition.


Create a watermark using text

If you don't have the assets to add custom image watermarks, simply add a text box to the video frame, type in your brand/name and decrease the saturation for a more subtle effect.
