I can see the images showing but no red rectangle is displayed. <-- source image. <-- image to search

I'm getting rectangles for CCOEFF, CCOEFF_NORM methods only.

it doesn't seem to be saving the red rectangle to the image file.

in, you have to give a filename.

Just a follow on. With the find template method you are not always guaranteed a match. Template matching just returns a value of match quality for every pixel in the image. If your thresholds are too high you will not get any results. You need to monkey with parameters to determine the sensitivity of your correlation method. I suggest you read up on the topic of template matching.
