Bonus: How to Make a Watermark on CapCut Web Editor

ByteDance released the CapCut Web Editor earlier in the Jun of 2022 with the intent to help beginners quickly create engaging videos for social media right on their browser. It gives you nearly as much basic control as a mobile version of CapCut, allowing you to add a text, image, or video watermark. Unfortunately, it might disappoint users who need to add a transparent PNG watermark since it will automatically convert the PNG into a JPG with white background. Worse still, it will store the project files and media files in the cloud which only gives 512MB of free storage space. Anyway, if you really want to make a watermark on CapCut Web Editor, follow the steps below:

Step 1. Go to your project on CapCut for PC.

Step 2. Hit Upload. Select the picture or video clip that you want to use as the watermark for uploading to the program.

Step 3. Drag the imported watermark file onto the timeline and place it over the main material of your project.

Step 4. Drag the 4 white points to resize the watermark. Click the watermark and move the mouse to reposition it.

Step 5. Move the slider of Opacity to change the transparency of the watermark.
