    Anytime I finish a thumbnail and channel art in Photoshop the file size (jpg) always seems to be 15-20 mb . Does anyone know how to export them as a smaller file size ?

    Do you use Save for web and devices, and choose JPEG there?
    That should lower the file size quite a bit.

    If you drop the qualifying meter from 12 to 9 or 8 it should shrink the size and the drop in quality won’t be noticeable

    Look into canva.com. They have templates for thumbnail sizes.

    images need to size to a specific pixel size. MB has nothing to do with it.

    Usually what I do is edit my stuff in Photoshop and then bring it to Canva.com and they have templates for YT channel art.

    I know the thumbnail size I use is 1280x 720. You also google thumbnail templates that should help you a little bit.

    If you're using photoshop, always save in .jpeg / .jpg and make sure to lower the quality a bit if the size is too big, the difference is not big if you lower it a bit and it also shows you how many mb it will save with :) I use it on my thumbnails too!
