BAC TV NEEDS A VIDEO THUMBNAIL FOR OUR CHANNEL FROM YOU.

Part of our system is we will add your live feed to our network.  So we need what is called a Thumbnail to add to our site and we will do the rest.  More than likely you are saying what is a thumbnail, RIGHT?

Video thumbnails let viewers see a quick snapshot of your video as they’re browsing YouTube your a website like ours BAC TV. The video thumbnail is the first thing that viewers see when browsing through our website. It’s a small, clickable static image that either grabs their attention – or lets them scroll on by.

We need one for your channel.  You need something that grabs the eye and communicates what your video is about at a glance. You want it to grab your target audience and make them think.  Again, a thumbnail is typically the first impression of your video, and essentially determines whether or not people will click through.

THUMBNAIL SIZE QUICK GUIDE

Here’s the quick version for the best dimensions to use for the thumbnail image.

Ideal Dimensions: 1280 x 720 pixels
Minimum Dimensions: 640 pixels wide
Maximum filesize: 2MB
Image Files Formats: JPG, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP
