How to Design a YouTube Thumbnail in GIMP

Learn how to design a YouTube video thumbnail fit for 2021 with this GIMP graphic design and photo manipulation tutorial! I’ve been getting a lot of requests for this tutorial lately, so here it is. I show you how to cut out and stroke a subject, and essentially replace the background of your photo. You can then add various effects such as an image border, text and logos, and color adjustments or corrections for a professional and eye-catching result.

No Photoshop required! Plus, all the resources used in this tutorial – including the photos – are totally free.
