So I currently use photoshop to edit some of my thumbnails, although for some reason, I can never find the appropriate font in which to use my thumbnails. Can anyone give me suggestions in what fonts that would be appealing to an audience?

At the end of the day it’s all personal choice really. You really should only be focusing on clarity of the font, and it’s ability to be used with a wide range of background.

i personally like bold, “serif” fonts, or “condensed” fonts, but there’s so many out there, you really just need to explore a bit. What do other people in your niche use?

it’s hard to go wrong with a solid serif font. Drop shadow also helps fonts stand out too.
