Images for YouTube Thumbnail

A YouTube thumbnail is the sneak peek to your video. It tells viewers about the content of the video and hence has to be enticing enough. One of the most important parts of a YouTube Thumbnail is the image used. High-quality pictures add to the looks of your YouTube Thumbnail. Upload your own photos or choose from thousands of stock images available in LightX and see your thumbnail come to life.

Add Text to Thumbnail

Next up is the text of the thumbnail. Along with high-quality images, a YouTube Thumbnail sometimes demands a short copy, attractive enough to catch the attention of the readers. Adding text to a thumbnail is very easy with LightX. When you select a YouTube Thumbnail Template from LightX, you can edit its text or use the text templates from various categories. This makes your work faster and easier.
