How I edit my YouTube thumbnails

Designing an effective YouTube thumbnail is crucial to your video’s success. Whether you’re wanting more website views, or more brand awareness on the platform, it’s time to get creative.

There are three key elements to a great YouTube thumbnail:

  1. Shows what the video is about in the image
  2. High resolution and quality
  3. Optional – Include a title, key benefit or point of the video
