    I enjoy making up goofy band names too. WHile making that, this accidentally came through

    I can't see the thumbnail in your post, but remember it from the video.

    I had no clue that there was dedicated software for making thumbnails. I just use my go to image editing software, GIMP, when making a thumbnail.

    The Gnu Image Manipulation Program is open source and completely free to use. Unlimited use.
    But I guess there is a bit more to learn.

    Just read some sites about what makes a good thumbnail.
    Omg, I use too little yellow!
    Apparently you want a head shot close enough to see the white in the eyes, a very emotional expression on the face. And yellow. Dont forget yellow.

    I am doing it wrong.

    You know the thumbnail, the little picture you clock on to view a video on Youtube, which is also displayed where you embed the video in your post, until people click it.

    YouTube lets you choose from three frames from your video, or you can upload a picture you want as a thumbnail. I often do the latter, since youtube tends to pick frames where I look like I am in pain or something. Also I like to add text.

    The thumb should be a picture, preferably 720 by 1280 pixels.

    Studies show that some pictures make more people click your video. Having the color yellow should be a good idea.

    Oh, right - one needs to look jaundiced to attract attention! (Perhaps it makes people feel sorry for you.)

    seen that video. was epic and I'll watch again.

    I almost had a NUD, but the website that advertised up to 50% off a single item only offered me 5% off. Far from enough of a discount to entice an order from me. I also tried a bunch of other Honey discount codes and they were all for different regions. FML. guess I will save up a little more for the Fender Jazzmaster uke instead.
