Ok, here are three different designs for thumbnails I might use in my next video. I want to change the photo of myself and put a glow outline but besides that. What do you guys think about them? Would you change anything? @MattCommand1

I actually like the first one since it has the photo of the person whose video you're going to be reviewing. I think that it's more eye-catching than the browser and illustration of the guitar handle. However, I do like how "Review" fits into the left side on the second and third versions. Are you able to pick a different photo of the guy to allow you to keep "Review" on the left side? Or maybe play around with the arrangement more? I hope that that helps!

Thanks for the feedback. What do you think now?

Personally, I am not a big fan of the bricks because it seems "busy" to me but it isn't horrible. I like to make things pop as much as I can by using high contrasts between background and foreground text.

That whole "Next Level Playing" logo won't translate well on a thumbnail as far as visibility goes. You might have to blow it up a bit more. What is the bigger focus? The logo or the guy's face? I am unsure what is more important.

Also, in order to see your face more on the thumbnail, you need less of your body. I am not sure if it is intentional that you pulled back on the image. Personally, I would zoom in more.
