I upload cooking tutorial videos and use the same template for my thumbnails. Not sure if it stands out? What should I add or change? The pictures are from my first and most recent video. Any and all feedback will be appreciated :blush:
They're good as a starting point as they utilise colour, angles etc but the French Toast is looking a bit washed out/overexposed.
I would say you could read the book How to Photograph Food which is an amazing read and heaps to teach but also YouTube tutorials as well.
It just comes down to practice and developing your style.
Just my two cents on it.

I agree. The food images are a bit washed out. Perhaps a bit of improvement on the food images would be a great way to start. My other advice, make the food the main focus of the thumbnails. While the half and half style looks good, I would suggest more of a 30/70 look. Make the food space bigger and the text/description area a bit smaller. That way the food will get the eats of potential viewers first. Hope this helps.

Grün ist sehr einfach, ich würde eine auffälligere Farbe wählen, wenn Sie in der Nische wirklich hervorstechen möchten.

Appreciate the feedback, had never heard of the book but will look it up. Thank you so much :)

The example you gave is reeeeeeally helpful. I'll try the 30/70 approach on my next thumbnail, and see how it goes! Really, appreciate the feedback. Thank you so much :)

Entschuldigung für die späte Antwort, ich war im Urlaub :blush:.
Grün ist das Thema meiner „Marke“, aber ich werde mit dem nächsten Miniaturbild experimentieren und sehen, was passiert. Ich habe Google Translate verwendet und hoffe, dass dies Sinn ergibt. Schätzen Sie Ihren Rat, vielen Dank :)

Red, green and yellow are very eye-catching, according to a study on youtube. You just have to find the right tone of the 3 colors.
