Easily add your branding to your videos

Video watermarks are essentially the digital signatures on video content. They’re visually appealing. They stand out. They’re memorable.

When others repost or share your content on social media, your watermark reminds them of you, your brand, and the value you provided them with. This is especially helpful to bring more awareness to your brand or to build your following across social media platforms. Using Kapwing, you can add a permanent watermark in your desired position on your video to secure your content credit. Kapwing's video editor works completely online, in the browser, and supports multiple fonts as well as custom image uploads.

Add Your Brand to a Video online

This tool will help you protect your content and brand by making it really easy to place a watermark of your choice on your content. It's perfect for logos, “DO NOT DOWNLOAD” warnings, brand names, icons, social media handles, usernames, and attribution to the original creator. The straightforward drag-and-drop editor works for both images and videos too.

Get started by uploading the video you wish to watermark. Then, add your watermark, either by searching for it in “Images,” typing a text layer, or uploading a PNG file. You can use Kapwing's Erase tool to make the background transparent. Then, drag the watermark layer to position it and resize and the timeline to change when the video appears and disappears. For an image or text watermark, you can stylize the appearance of the watermark by editing the opacity, color, outline, and rotation. Finally, export and save to publish your watermarked video on social media, or download to your computer.

Trying to repost content without the annoying TikTok logo? You’re in luck! Kapwing's watermark tools can also be used to remove the watermark of a video. Essentially, Kapwing is a free video editor that can be used to achieve any watermark-related task. For step-by-step tips on removing a logo, see the resources at the bottom of the page.

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
