Designing the thumbnail is one of my favorite parts of editing a video. I love combining images and text into a colorful little cover image.
Since I started my YouTube channel a few months ago, I feel like my thumbnails have converged onto a specific style.
I received an e-mail from a reader who was looking to start a YouTube channel, asking about how I design my thumbnails. I ended up practically writing a book in that e-mail, so I decided it would be a great topic for a video.
In this video I’ll take you through the entire thumbnail design process: how I choose colors, design the text elements, add in hand-drawn doodles, utilize Photoshop tools, etc.
I hope you find this video helpful! If you did, I’d really appreciate it if you could like it and subscribe to my channel for more videos :) Thank you so much!
