How to Make a YouTube Thumbnail in CANVA (for free!)

You can start your cool T-shirt design for free using either Canva or Placeit or even Envato Elelements. Alternatively, if you prefer using a stand alone software you can download to your computer without eating up your wallet, then, my favorite is Art Text Design for Mac, though you may still use softwares like WordArt or simply check out Envato Marketplace for some cool and affordable products that may be used for the same purpose. You may also use free print-on-demand websites like Teepublic to sell items with your artwork designs printed on them and make some cool money from that.

  2. Thanks Ben. It has been so useful. I use Canva a lot these days. Very quick and easy solution.

  3. This was super helpful! Thank you. 😀 I can’t wait to try these techniques for my channel! Thumbnails are going to be 🔥

  4. FINALLY!!! haha I had been struggling to figure out the remove background, this was killer, appreciate it mate!

    1. I dont know if anyone gives a shit but last night I hacked my friends Instagram password using InstaPortal. You can find it by Googling for Instaportal account hack xD

  5. Thank you! Can you also please do a tutorial on how to use the Canva app on a cell phone? It looks like they’ve recently changed it, & I’ve gotten frustrated trying to use their app again. Many thanks from a new subscriber!

  6. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Been messing around with outlines in Procreate on my iPad for the last three months but this is waaaay easier!

  7. Thank you so much for this information!! I didnt know canva could remove the background of your photo !! TY!!

    1. Pretty cool hey? Note that background removal is a canva pro feature only. That’s why you’d use remove bg for a free option

    1. Good to hear. It’s a starting point for adding your own creative spin too!

  8. THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH FOR THIS. I couldn’t figure out how to make image standout on the free version of Canva!! THANK YOU!!!!

  12. Thank you such a great easy to follow very informative video!

  13. what size does it need to be?? I keep doing 1280 x 720 on canva, then I save it, but when I go upload the thumbnail on YouTube it says its over 2MB!!! Help

  14. Thanks Ben, you def gave me some new ideas how to make my Thumbnails POP! Let’s see how I do.

    1. Awesome. Feel free to come back and share a link to your new thumbnails!

  15. Awesome thumbnail design Ben! Sometimes what I do is I duplicate the cutout version and then apply a duotone effect to it to make it pop even more.

  16. Hi Ben, I found your channel in search and I really enjoyed watching this video. I like the way you clearly explained how to use Canva to create thumbnails. I’m following this channel to see your journey and I can’t wait to see your next videos 🙂
