✓ By the way , you can choose the templates related to your niche or the template which attracts you. It totally depends on you.

✓ Or else you can also show your creativity via making some changes in templates.

✓ And choosing templates is subjective. It differs from person to person so adding some images will not be beneficial according to me.

Choosing colors also make a big difference, so choose colors that match together and clear for the eyes

Video thumbnails might not seem to be a big deal when it comes to minimizing views, but they actually matter more than you can imagine. These tips will help you create eye catching thumbnails:

1. Always include people's faces since real facial expressions tend to attract a bigger audience.

2. That main colors used in making thumbnails are"white, red, and blue". Try to use different colors.

3. Add a text that makes people feel curious about the topic.
