How To Create a Video Thumbnail (Using Picmonkey)
Thumbnails are the still image that holds the place of your video before someone decides to click on it and watch. There is a lot of competition in search results and your thumbnail could be the thing that brings someone to choose your video to watch.
When you upload your videos to YouTube, it will automatically generate a thumbnail for you and it’s fairly certain that your three automated thumbnails it selects for you will be terrible!
You should never leave your only visual connection to the video audience to chance by letting these thumbnails be automatically generated. It is important to take the time to design your own image to upload for every single video.
A thumbnail that not only makes someone consider watching but looks in line with the branding of your channel as a whole.
