    Funky Overlays

    This works great if you are using another YouTube Video and want to make it your own or just add to your own video:

    The thing is that a YouTube Implant can be MUCH MORE than a simple ‘button’ – if it’s a .png file with a transparent background it’s kind of powerful..

    Here’s an example ( I haven’t added links to the Implanted stuff but I trust you can see the possibilities):


    and edit it to your liking online with Pixlr.com

    Then use the ‘Annotations Spotlight’ – as per the YouTube Implant method – to link each part of the overlay. You know the score by now right :-)

    This works best on videos sized: 640 x 360 pixels ( which by the way is the size of a Google Hangout video). SO make a regular video look like a pro Hangout or, by all means, use on your next Hangout video ( upload to your ‘Lower Third’ option when using the ‘Hangout Toolbox’ app).

      How do you edit the texts in Pixler? Cant figure it out

        Click the ‘A’ icon in the left hand side bar and then click where you want the text to go inside your image. A pop-up box appears where you add your text, choose font and adjust size an color then click save.

        There is an explanatory video here
