Thumbnail Feedback I'm fixing thumbnails on videos that aren't doing so great. Here is a before/after of some thumbnail work I just fixed up. How is it looking?

I really like how the text is in bold and has the same type of text theme as the sims 4 text Everything looks crisp

The christmas lights are cool in the first one but legibility is king I believe. Must be very easy to read at a glance as that is all were doing. Glancing at all those thumbnails and judging the book by its cover.

It's always fun to look back on work like this. There was nothing wrong with the original... but you obviously grew and improved in the time since the first thumbnail. A couple very minor changes make a noticeable impact on the thumbnail's presentation. I wish we could have CTR info to go with the pics. Well done ma'am, keep up the great work!

I definitely like the second one more. it's brighter and gives more of a "Cheerful" vibe, and much easier to read text.
What kind of CTR are you getting since the update?

I agree the 2nd one was a big improvement. Funny how it can take so much time figuring out these thumbnails. I like to go through and see the change in how a channels thumbnails evolve. ItΓÇÖs almost like a growing up process. If thatΓÇÖs true.... IΓÇÖm still in diapers. Nice job!
Love your comments and interaction here. If I see a thread you are on I pay more attention cuz I like what you bring!

Could you update on whether its given the video a boost since changing it? I like the 2nd one more, but the proof is in the pudding I suppose

Ich finde 2-tes Bild besser. Zweites Bild ist angenehmer wegen Stimmung und weniger Kontrast. Es passt zu Weihnachtsstimmung besser.

I honestly think both are very eye-catching! The first one is expressing more movement, so it's still a really good thumbnail. What I love about the second one though are the colors that are shining through and the fact that they match so well together.
