Creating Video Thumbnails
- Step #1) Find a website that you like!
The 1st step is to find a website where you can create your video thumbnails! 🙂 *smiles* Personally, I use an AMAZINGLY AWESOME website called Canva! 🙂 😀 *smiles happily* On Canva, you can create a WIDE variety of things! Such as: YT video thumbnails, blog pictures, blog graphics, album covers, social media pictures, banners for your social media, and a TON more~! 🙂 😀 *smiles happily* I use Canva for nearly EVERYTHING!! It’s a REALLY reliable & useful site~! 🙂 *smiles again* I HIGHLY suggest using Canva! But if Canva isn’t for you, then you can EASILY find a different website to use!
- Step #2) Decide what YOUR style is!!
The 2nd step is to decide what YOUR personal style is! 🙂 😀 *smiles excitedly* EVERYBODY has their own, personal, UNIQUE style! 🙂 *smiles* It’s EXTREMELY helpful to know what YOUR style is, so you can incorporate it into your video thumbnails! Why, you might ask? Well, by applying YOUR style onto your thumbnails, it’ll be easier for your viewers to be able to tell when a video is yours, just by looking at the video’s thumbnail! Personally, MY style involves: a LOT of purple & light-blue, 2 specific fonts (the “Grand Hotel” font and the “Lora” font), PNG images, interesting images, and more~! You need to decide what YOUR unique style is, before you start creating thumbnails!
- Step #3) Choose your “theme colors!!!”
The 3rd step is to choose your “theme colors!” 🙂 *smiles* Theme colors are the colors that you will MAINLY use in your video thumbnails!! MY theme colors are USUALLY purple and light-blue!! 🙂 😀 *smiles happily* This step is EXTREMELY easy~!
- Step #4) Start designing~!!!!
Last but not least, the 4th step is to… DRUMROLL PLEASE~!!! *drumroll sounds* Start designing!! YAY~!!! 🙂 😀 *smiles happily* Now that you’ve figured out the website that you’ll use, your personal style, and your theme colors, you can start designing your video thumbnails!! DOUBLE YAY~!!! 🙂 *smiles* So, with this, I bid you ALL good luck~!
