How to Add or Change Video Thumbnails

Grab viewers' attention with captivating thumbnails!

Thumbnails play a crucial role in attracting viewers to your content and enticing them to watch your videos. Well-designed thumbnails can significantly increase the conversion rate of your video posts. You have the flexibility to choose and customize thumbnails when posting on Facebook Pages, YouTube, or Instagram. On Instagram, you can use any image from the video as an alternative thumbnail. On Facebook and YouTube, you can either select a thumbnail from the video or upload a custom image.

Here's a step-by-step guide on selecting custom thumbnails:
