    How Do I put a Business Logo in My iMovie Video?
    I want to put the logo for my business at the beginning of my movie but have it not take up the entire screen. Just something in the lower left corner. How is this done? If I could animate the clip that would be even better.
    Thanks

    The easiest is, if you figure out what size the final video will be. Then go into something like Photoshop, Gimp, ... and create a new graphic that size. It's important that the background is transparent. Place the logo where ever you want it, save the graphic as png and add to the video.

    Cool thanks. Is there anyway to do this with a free program because I do not have photoshop?

    It can't be done on iMovie HD - I have no idea about the new version, but I doubt it because since iLife 08 iMovie has been dumbed down considerably. If you don't have FCP/FCE/FCS your best bet is to make your video without it then find somebody who has it and get them to add the logo as a jpeg or png if it's a cut out.

    While, it can be done in iMovie 08-11. dekon described the 'easy' way. I'm sure I've even seen a YouTube video where it has been explained.
