In the tutorial underneath I’m going to introduce you to a very simple yet efficient way of removing watermarks from videos.
Part 1: Remove Watermark from Video via Photoshop
Adobe Photoshop, referred to as “PS”, is an image processing software developed and distributed by Adobe Systems. PS has many functions, which are involved in various aspects such as pictures, text, and videos. Using its numerous editing and drawing tools, you can effectively edit pictures and videos. Therefore, we can use Photoshop to remove watermark from video. The following are the specific steps.
Step 1: Open Photoshop, and import the video that needs to be removed watermark into Photoshop.
Step 2: Select the “Seal” tool to remove the watermark in the video.
Step 3: Remove the watermark of each frame in turn.
After completing the above steps, the watermark in the video can be removed. However, the operation of removing the watermark in the video frame by frame is very time consuming. Once the length of the video is too long, it will take a lot of time.
Part 2: Remove Watermark from Video via After Effects
Adobe After Effects referred to as “AE” is a graphics and video processing software launched by Adobe. It can help users efficiently and accurately create countless kinds of eye-catching dynamic graphics and shocking visual effects for users’ movies, videos, and DVDs. Therefore, users can remove watermark from video by using some video editing functions in After Effects. The specific steps for using After Effects to remove the watermark in the video are as follows.
Step 1: Open AE and import the video into AE.
Step 2: Use the mouse to click on the video and drag it to the button named “Create Composition”. At this time, the layer panel will automatically generate the video layer.
Step 3: In the video layer, press CTRL+D on the keyboard to copy a video layer. Then select the copied video layer and add Gaussian blur to this video layer.
Step 4: Set the blur degree of Gaussian blur to 40. Then, in the copied video layer, create a rectangular mask. After creating the mask, the watermark in the video is removed.

Compared with PS and AE, these online tools have the following advantages: no download is required, and the operation is convenient and quick.
