YouTube is currently the most used video website in the world. Millions of users connect there on a daily basis. That is exactly why your brand needs to be present there! So today we’ll be showing you how to create a successful professional image on this platform.
To do this, let’s first look at the importance of images on YouTube. Then we’ll review the platform’s recommended image sizes and to it wrap up we’ll go over a few practical tips to make your channel successful.
Why Should You Use Professional Images on YouTube?
For YouTube and all the other platforms that qualify as Social Media, images and videos are the most shared content. Therefore, they’re an essential port of any effective Social Media Strategy.
In fact, images are the most effective content when it comes to catching the users’ attention in the “endless sea” of YouTube videos. Why? Because they have Stopping Power, or the power to make people look at your publication.
So, being that YouTube is a visual content centered social network, it’s fundamental to use professional quality images. And to get the best results, it’s necessary to publish photos with good resolution.
Recommended YouTube Image Sizes to Get the
The best way to ensure that your images look professional is to follow the recommended sizes for YouTube images. By doing so you’ll avoid frequent errors such as stretched, pixelated and blurred photos and in return will give your channel a clean and attractive appearance.
The recommended image sizes for YouTube are:
YouTube Channel Icon: 800 x 800 pixels.
YoutTube Banner Size: a minimum of 2048 X 1152 pixels and a maximum of 4 MB.
YouTube Videos Thumbnails: 1280 x 720 pixels.
1- Choose Relevant and Attractive Images for Your Video Thumbnails: Thumbnails of your videos on YouTube may be loaded separately (meaning, they don’t necessarily have to pertain to the video). That’s why it’s highly advisable to take advantage of this opportunity to utilize attractive images that encourage people to watch.
2- Utilize Medium to Large Photos in Your Thumbnails:
As for thumbnails, it’s advisable to utilize images with a minimum of 1280 x 720 pixels, like we said earlier. It’s like this because YouTube will use this image to illustrate the video before playing it, so it can be viewed well in this size.
3- Employ a Striking Cover and Icon Too Since It’s What People First See: We’re not only saying this because your cover is visible when people visit your channel, but also because when users place their mouse over your name, a little preview of your channel automatically pops up displaying your icon and cover.
That’s all folks! Hopefully, we’ve helped you get more out of your images on your YouTube channel. Please, remember to share this information with your contacts. See you next time!
