Creating creative thumbnails for your YouTube videos is one of the most important things you should consider to develop your YouTube channel.
If your YouTube video thumbnails are attractive and creative, it will help you attract more people to watch your videos and then rank higher. However, if you use the low-standard thumbnails automatically generated by YouTube, it will be more difficult for anyone to increase views on your YouTube channel. I won’t tell you how to make a cool thumbnail for your YouTube videos in this post, but you can find out how to change the thumbnails for your YouTube videos in 2023 here.

This way to change YouTube thumbnails can be used to upload and publish videos. Please leave your questions in the comment section at the bottom. How do I change the thumbnail of a YouTube video in YouTube Studio?

After you select a thumbnail, click “Open”. By the way, make sure the thumbnail size is 2MB or below; otherwise, YouTube won’t allow you to use a large image as a video thumbnail.

If you’re happy with the latest thumbnail you’ve used for your YouTube video, click “Save” on the video edit page.
