YouTube Graphics – How I make my Thumbnails, etc.

IN Marketing & Wordpress

This video is NOT a tutorial.
Just answering the question that was asked of me – how do I make my custom thumbnails.

Nutshell version: I use Photoshop to make my YouTube Thumbnails, Watermark, Channel Art & today I also made a Hangout Overlay.

You can download the Photoshop .PSD templates that I use here:
(only works if you own Adobe Photoshop)
Let me know if you have problems downloading – I’m trying to use Google Drive to “share” it to “anyone with a link” but not sure if that will work or not :)

Paint (should already be installed on your computer)
