I'm sooooooo excited to finally have the option to chose my own thumbnails.....problem is I have no clue how to create them. If any of you kind people can follow me through the programs or things I need to make them I would greatly appreciate that. I have a mac for my computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Photoshop is the best.

Or.. Just use a great still frame in the video, it's easy to find a good one in every video

I use GIMP. It's freeeeeeeeee. :D lol

I went to the Photoshop website and got a free 30 day trial. Used the crap out of it. It was sweet. Then when it ran out... I moved on to GIMP. haha

The purpose of the template is to create your own from its contents, it has groups of different styles with text to edit easily, for a preview of some of what you can create with them with a little creativity and time see our newest ones on YTtalkTV, some dont use the template but most are variations of it :)
