So you’re making PUBG content and you need a thumbnail to finish the project. Should you hire a designer to make it? Should you make it yourself? How do you even make a thumbnail? Thumbnails shouldn’t this be overwhelming.
Lucky for you, you can make a thumbnail in a few minutes, save your money and customize it exactly how you want right now. How, you ask? Kapwing’s simple editing studio. In this article, I’ll show you how easy Kapwing makes thumbnails for PUBG. Let’s get started:
- Open a blank canvas
- Add your PUBG graphics
- Export your thumbnail
1. Open a blank canvas
First, open the Kapwing studio and click ‘Start with a blank canvas.’ Next, change the output size to ‘16:9’ in the top right.
The 16:9 aspect ratio ensures your image fits any landscape video like YouTube or Twitch.
2. Add your PUBG graphics
Now, add your relevant PUBG graphics like screenshots, logos and text. You can create your own screenshots in-game or you can search them online.
Click ‘Upload’ in the top left to add screenshots or other PUBG pictures. Click ‘Text’ to add a text box you can customize with the right side panel. Check out this article about adding text to photos to learn more.
Think about your thumbnails as a visual summary of your PUBG video. For the text, write 2-4 words that describe the main idea. Zoom in on your screenshots so they’re easier to see when published. Lastly, add the game logo so viewers know it’s a PUBG video.
Pro tip: Search PUBG on YouTube and look at thumbnails for the most viewed videos. Notice trends or similarities between the thumbnails. This helps you understand what already works for getting clicks.
3. Export your thumbnail
When you’re done, click ‘Export Image’ in the top right and wait for processing. Finally, you can download your thumbnail or share it directly to social media.
Now that you have a custom PUBG thumbnail, add it to your project. If you need help editing your video, Kapwing can help with that, too! Check out this article about how to edit videos in Kapwing to learn more.
