How to add a logo on a video online
Resize and brand videos, adding a logo, is a common task that can be easily made online. This free online tool works on both Windows and Mac, and even on your iPhone or Android device. It doesn't require any signup or software install, just a moderm browser like Firefox, Chrome, or Safari.
As recomeded by Pinterest, one of the best practices to improve brand awareness is to add a logo in a subtle way. This and a simple resize are usually enough to prepare your video for your home page or social media network.
For instance, we are going to take this video traffic time lapse, and put our logo on it with the online video editor. We are going to create a square cropped version with the logo watermark optimized and reade to publish on your web.
1. Upload and resize/crop the video
Go to the editor and upload the video to start editing the video. Once uploaded, change the size of your output video using one the presets. Choose the Instagram preset to get a high resolution square video version (1080x1080). Change the resize mode to select between cropping or padding mode (with the padding mode you get a square version preserving the content).
You can also change the background color when the padding mode is selected. Just choose another color in the background input color (white by default).
2. Add the logo on your video
To add the logo click on the toolbar button and upload a high quality version (SVG or PNG) with alpha channel. Place and resize it at your convenience and adjust the opacity to create a more pleasant result. You can also add some text, message or call to action.
3. Create and download your video
Preview your video on any moment. Once ready, click the download button to start creating the video. This can take some time, because video processing is a heavy task. Just wait for a while until the video is downloaded.
Remember to upload a Full HD video version to get the best result. If your uploaded video has a lower resolution the result will be automatically limited to the maximum achievable resolution, preserving the video quality.
You can also automate this task from the console and add a logo to a batch of videos at once.
