Do you have a crazy look on your face in your YouTube thumbnail? Wanna know how to change that thumbnail to attract more viewers?

In this straight up basics video, I’m gonna show you how to switch between the three thumbnails YouTube auto-generates for every video uploaded to your channel.


Choosing a thumbnail for your YouTube videos

  1. Go over to the upper right hand corner and click on your avatar, then click on Creator Studio.
  2. Choose the video you’d want to edit then click ‘Edit’.
  3. On the right side of the video, you’ll see the three thumbnails YouTube auto-generated for your video. Choose the one you’d like to set as your thumbnail and just click ‘Save changes’.

As you get a little more advanced, you’ll want to start creating custom thumbnails. Those really help draw in potential viewers.
