Recording videos and saving them with a watermark has never been easier! In today’s article I will explain to you how to add a watermark to any of your videos downloaded via Surveillance Station.

After you click Edit on STEP 3 a new window will open. You can check Text watermark to add a text watermark to your video. You have multiple options to personalize your text watermark like choosing the color of your text, font, position and size. You can also add your own Image watermark or, as I call it, logo. Adding your own logo is really easy. Check Image watermark and click the “Browse” button to upload your own logo from your computer, then select the position, size and opacity of the logo. Click Save to save the settings.
