How To Make A Video Thumbnail In Photoshop
Adobe Photoshop is the most famous graphic design software in the world. You can use the platform to create unique images, design websites, edit videos and create 3D artwork. Photoshop can be a fantastic asset to a PPC business.
Known for its complexity, there are hundreds – if not thousands – of Photoshop tutorials out there. Some go really in-depth, and that’s great if that’s what you need. But today, I’m just going to show you how to make simple, tailored images for your business. Sometimes, the basics can be best.
When I mention Photoshop, some people tend to panic. They associate the software with being a graphic designer paid 6-figures a month in London somewhere. Graphic designers indeed use Photoshop – but that shouldn’t stop you from having a go. We use Photoshop at Flexxable to make:
- Thumbnails for our videos
- Attention-grabbing ads
- The high-quality images you see on our website and social media pages.
No experience? Not to worry. I’ll take you right back to the very beginning, and make the whole process into a user-friendly, step-by-step guide. I’ll also point you to some helpful sites where you can source FREE images for your latest project.
I won’t beat about the bush – the full Adobe Suite costs a pretty penny or two. But you can sign up for a free trial, or use their Photography Plan for £9.98 a month. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I spend more on a mid-week lunch.
If you have any questions about Photoshop or find yourself getting stuck, write a message in the comments. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
