Websites like YouTube have revolutionized how we share our home videos. You can now instantly upload home videos to the Internet and share them with the world. With Windows Movie Maker, you can personalize the presentation by adding a logo, similar to those shown on television networks, to the bottom corner of your movies.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Make your logo as a simple graphic saved on a transparent background. The .gif file type works well for this. Save the logo as "mylogo.gif."

  2. 2

    Add the logo transition file to your computer. Find the code by going to the Windows Movie Makers website and searching for "watermark" or "transparent logo." Paste the code into a Notepad document and save it as "mylogo.xml" into the C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX folder. If you don't have this folder, make it.

  3. 3

    Open Windows Movie Maker. Import the clip you want to use and drag it onto the timeline.

  4. 4

    Add the logo overlay. Go to the "Tools" menu and choose "Titles and Credits." Click "Add title on the selected clip in the timeline." In the textbox, type one space and click "Change the title animation." From the animation choices, choose "MyLogo" and click "Done, add title to movie."

  5. 5

    Extend your logo to match your clip. On the timeline area, the title area is four rows below the main clip timeline. Find the title overlay, click the right-hand border and drag it to extend it to the same length as your background clip.

  6. 6

    Save your movie.
