How To Add A Logo Watermark To Your YouTube Videos

In this tutorial you will learn how to put a Logo Watermark on all of your YouTube Videos. A watermakr is an image that you provide that will be in the corner of your videos. It is small and transparent. Also, by doing this it acts as an annotation as well that will allow your viewers to hover over the watermark and subscribe right from your video! This is a huge reason why I believe having a watermark on your videos is important.

First things first, in order to do this you have to have a profile image. If you need to know how to add a YouTube channel profile image go here.

Here is an example of a Logo Watermark on a YouTube video:

Follow These Steps To Place A Watermark Image On Your Videos:

1.) Once you have logged into your YouTube channel click on your channel name in the upper right hand corner of the screen. You will then see a drop down menu of options come available. Click on “YouTube Settings”.

2.) You will now be taken to the YouTube settings overview page. At the bottom of this page you will see a link that says “View Additional Features” click on that link.

3.) You will now be taken to the YouTube creators Feature Page. On the right hand side of the screen you will see an option that says “InVideo Programming” click on that link.

4.) Once on the InVideo Programming page you will see the “Branding Watermark” options at the top of the screen. This is where you will setup your watermark to put on all of your videos.

5.) The first thing that you need to do is activate InVideo programming and then once you do you will have a few different options.

  • You have a few different options as to when your logo shows up on your videos.
  • Entire Video – If you choose this option your watermark will be on your video for the entire time.
  • End Of Video – If you choose this option your watermark will be on your video at the very end of your video for about 30-45 seconds.
  • Custom Time – If you choose this option you will be able to set a time for your watermark to appear and then another time for it to disappear.
 As I stated at the beginning of this tutorial, having a watermark on your videos is a great benifit for your channel. With the watermark on your video and using the YouTube InVideo programming, it will place a subscribe button right on top of your watermark on every video! Anyway that you can have a Call To Action on your video for your viewers to subscribe is always a good thing.
