Really interesting to watch and I learned so many new things to do with Youtube Thumbnails. Rachael explained it very well. If I ever need to make a thumbnail on Youtube I now know how to do it thanks to this tutorial.

I was really hoping to get some guidance through this video on what makes a good thumbnail for a video. Instead, the video felt like a person's personal work style in photoshop to create thumbnails that personally felt sloppy and seemed a less than effective way to do things as it would cause image file size bloat due to all the unused layers, unless you export it in a way to have photoshop filter out the unused data, which would get slower and slower. Overall I feel like I could have learned more from going over youtube thumbnails for existing channels for the same 20 minutes of my time and learned a lot more.
