How to add Logo in DaVinci Resolve?
Method 1: Add Logo/watermark image to Video in DaVinci Resolve

- Go to the Color page, select the Sizing palette and adjust parameters such as the pan, tilt and zoom to adjust the position and size.
- Now your video is ready with the watermark, just select the Deliver page and add it to the Render Queue. Before adding to the queue, choose the desired format, for instance 720p, 1080p or so on YouTube, Vimeo & Custom.
- The last step is to select Start Render in the render queue.
