How to Put a Picture Over a Video

Overlaying an image over a video is a great way to brand it. You get to add an element of uniqueness to your video that emphasizes the core message and makes your content stand out.

With Keevi, you can easily overlay a picture over video you’re working on or a video published on YouTube. You can add charts, logos, icons, graphs, funny cat pictures — anything that works for you.

If you prefer, you can also overlay a video over video, such as an animation that can serve as a clickable call to action or a video tutorial with a video overlay of the person explaining it.

How to Overlay a Picture on a Video

Do you feel you don’t have the right video editing skills to create an awesome video with a picture overlay? Not to worry if you use Keevi.

Keevi is a free online tool that comes with a beginner-friendly user interface. It has practical features that make it possible to add multiple overlays to your videos. You can add other elements like text, stickers, audio, and subtitles. You can also choose when and where each overlay will appear on the video.

With Keevi, you get to overlay a picture over a video that is already uploaded on YouTube or one that is on your computer.

We will show you how you can upload the video or extract it from YouTube, edit it, overlay a picture, and then publish it anywhere.


Upload Your Video

In Keevi’s upload panel, you get four options to source your video:

  • Upload a saved video from your computer by clicking “Browse.”
  • Choose from thousands of royalty-free stock videos provided by Keevi.
  • Extract a published video from YouTube by adding its link in the space provided.
  • Record your video.

Once your video is successfully uploaded, you can resize it depending on the social media channel you want to use it. And you don’t have to worry about getting the correct dimensions. Keevi has made it easier for you by recommending suitable sizes for each social media platform.

Go to Settings, and click on ‘Select Format.’ Scroll down to make your selection from options such as:

  • Landscape
  • YouTube format
  • Twitter and Facebook portrait format
  • Twitter and Facebook landscape format and a lot more

Superimpose Image on Video

The next step is to add image overlay to video.

Click on ‘Add Media’ and on the left, select ‘Add Image.’ It will redirect you to the upload panel.

Here you get the options to upload an image from your computer or choose one of the royalty-free stock images provided by Keevi.

The image will overlay on your video. You can then:

  • Resize the image by clicking on the selection handles on the edges and dragging them inwards or outwards.
  • Click on the image and drag it around to find the ideal position.
  • Select the start time and end time of the image by moving the sub-track on the timeline.
  • Rotate the image by selecting the rotation degrees, which will be under ‘Edit Image’ on the left of the window.

There is no limit to the number of images you can add.

To add another image, simply click on ‘Add Media’ again and select ‘Add Image.’ Select a different start and end time for the image by moving its sub-track on the timeline. You can do the same with subsequent shots.

You can also: 

  • Add GIFs and emojis by clicking on ‘Stickers’ and selecting from the vast selection provided by Keevi.  
  • Type in words by selecting ‘Text’ and adding your text to the text box. You can add animation effects and change the font color and size.
  • Add Subtitles. Click on Auto subtitles to automatically generate subtitles in a language of your choice.
  • Add music to your video. Select ‘Add Media’ and click ‘Add Audio’ to upload music from your computer. 
  • Trim your video. Click on the video sub-track on the timeline and click and drag the handles on the edges (they resemble a pause icon).
  • Cut parts of the video you do not need using the split function. Click on the start time of the unwanted part and click split, then the end time, and click split. Then hit the delete icon. 

Export Your Video

It’s best to replay the video one more time before publishing. You can delete any unwanted element by selecting it in the timeline and hitting delete.

Once you complete the edits, it’s time to share your video with the world. Click on Export, and it will render your video with a superimposed image within seconds.

You can either download it or directly share it on any social media platform.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
