Thanks Steve, my Thumbnails are all constant, but they do not really show off the food. As with all things, it’s the first 2 seconds that count, if someone likes the Thumbnail they will click on it.

Got two ideas from popular designs on YouTube.

I prefer the layout of this picture but I'd like to see more of the food in it, But I'd dump the blue border around the text at bottom. It's too harsh a colour or go for a softer more muted shade of blue. A black border around  white text can be read on any background. I like your wee logo, I'd keep that in the video for brand recognition.

I think I prefer the picture of the food in this one but feel the text takes up too much plus the colour as above. 

Though this is only my opinion. Hope it helps. 😀Best of luck and I'll check out more of your stuff.

100% so far for no2. Smokin.......Your on the right lines...on the 2nd two I prefer the no 2.....the  BIGGEST annoyance for ,me on some of the BBQ, Beer, food videos is the intro.  I clicked on one only the other day for whatever, can't remember,  after 45 sec of heavy rock music I gave up and clicked on another video....don't get me wrong I love watching most music vids,  but not on other content vids.  A short intro?? yes no problem....in fact I click on the time line to move on..

My intros are 16 seconds long, try to keep videos under 5 minutes as people (including me) get bored. I have seen videos go on for 30 minutes, 5 minutes to chop and Onion. I have all my prep done, ready to cook.

This is my latest go at a Thumbnail.
