Image overlays are image clips that are shown over the main video. You can use an image overlay to add a logo or watermark to your main video to identify ownership. Just follow this tutorial to learn how to add an image overlay to your video.

Step 1: Add both the main video and the overlay image to MovieMator.

Step 2: Place the main video to a video track

Step 3: Place the overlay image to a different video track

Firstly, simple click menu or right-click the left part of the timeline to choose “Add Video Track”, then a new video track will be created. Secondly, choose the overlay image and follow the above step to place it to this video track in the timeline.
