Yes, it's possible to add a logo (png or jpg) image over the top of videos in Clipchamp.
If you're an Essentials plan subscriber, you'll also have access to customized branding, which means you can use the Logo menu to reposition, resize, rotate, flip or change the opacity of logos. Instructions and images can be found below.
If you're a free user, you can still add images to your projects via the Add Media button and place them in projects the same as videos, but you won't have access to the customization and resizing features shown below unless you upgrade.
Placing a logo over a video
To place your logo on top of a moving video, click on Brand kit tab on the left sidebar, then click on + add logos. (We have already added Clipchamp logos to the editor).
Choose the logo you would like to add from your computer and click Open.

Once the file has been added, drag and drop it into the timeline above the part of the video you want it to appear on or click the add or plus icon.
Reposition the logo around your video preview by clicking on the logo, then using the freehand tool.
Drag and click the edges of the logo card in the timeline if you would like to shorten or lengthen it to adjust how long the logo appears.
Click on the logo card in the timeline to ensure it is selected (it will be outlined with color when selected) and a logo editing menu will appear above the video preview.
In the menu that appears you can:

NOTE: you can also easily change the logo image to another that you've uploaded. All you have to do is to delete the existing logo from your timeline, then add/ replace it with your preferred logo.
