    2) Consider Different Sized Devices A lot of people aren’t aware of this, but you should consider all the devices youtubers watch content. These devices range from desktop, laptop, tablet, or cell phone. Which all have drastically different screen sizes. So you need to make your thumbnail look great when viewed on all devices. Since most YouTubers are watching videos on their phone, make sure it looks great when its small, so that may mean making the text a little bit bigger or not overcrowding it with too many elements. A good way to test if your thumbnail looks good smaller is to zoom out, or look at your thumbnail from a feet away!

    3) Make it stand out and be original Use bold colors, or unique designs to make your thumbnails stand out. Here are a few examples of different styles we have on various Filmora channels You dont necessarily need to use text in your thumbnail.
