Hello Everybody Today i will be showing you how we can create a beautiful and simple thumbnail for a video or article.
Step 1: Thumbnail Size
Firstly we make a new photoshop image and change all your settings to the ones above
Step 2: Finding the Perfect BackGround
Next we can either go onto Google or take our own image for our background. Make sure its good quality and is approximately the same size as your Photoshop document otherwise it will either be too small or too large!
Step 3: Copying Into Photo PhotoShop
Go onto your image and right click, press copy image then open Photoshop and hold CTRL and Tap P.
Step 4: Adding a Logo
Next we get our business or organisation's logo and copy it in as we did with the background. We then need to rescale it and move it to the perfect place
Step 5: Main Concept
Next we find our ideal font on Photoshop or go to www.dafont.com and download them. We then type a snappy and appealing title which explains the video/ article well.
Step 6: Theme
Finally in one of the corners we give our thumbnail a small subtitle which corresponds with the video or article's theme, this will give the viewer a clear idea of what it will be like.
