I want to be able to take a static image (logo) and place it in the corner of a video in Camtasia Studio 8. Is this possible?

yes, add image to timeline on a track that is higher than your video content; select, size, and position in canvas

k-man, a curiosity question - if using an image with transparency (as with a transparent PNG), is the result transparent in Camtasia?

I've used JPG images with transparent backgrounds with good results

Hi all,

One other way to achieve this is to include a watermark when you produce your video. (see attached image).

just add the images to timeline; place on top track if you want the images to appear over top other content; set image duration as appropriate

Thank you, Aarom, for providing the watermark feature help. I have a mac, though, and it seems that it is a windows. How is it done on a mac?

Help!  What do you mean when you say "add" the image to the timeline?  I added a track, but how do I get the image on the track?

using CS 8 for Windows?

import image into clip bin; right click image in clip bin, and add to timeline

new to Camtasia Studio?

perhaps watch the video tutorials on Tech Smith web site ...
