Here is what I do (or something similar, as I use this tactic to position more videos for people to click on), you can create a simple box with transparency around it (though make sure that the image format you save it as has support for alpha, png should work):

  1. Get your image onto your sequencer (drag in the image, or Shift + A).

General scene

  1. Select your image (Right click), and press Shift + A , then choose Effect Strip, and then Transform.

Effect Strip Transform

  1. Select the Transform block/strip, then over on the right, choose Alpha Over instead of Replace.

Alpha over

  1. Change the position and scale settings on the right, in the Effect Strip

Change position and scale

Maybe you can simply create an transparent image with a rectangle or arrow and use alpha over to show that image on top of your image strip ?
