Befunky is an elaborate web-based design app that allows editors to create many kinds of graphic resources. Befunky also offers a paid subscription-based service but the application has a free tier that is just fine for creating social media resources. Simply create an account and you're good to go. Here's how to create a thumbnail for your YouTube video using Befunky:
- From the Befunky dashboard, select Social Media from the sidebar, then click the youtube thumbnail tab to filter down the list of templates, and select the best candidate for your needs.
- You are presented with a copy of the template and its elements.
- You can change the copy, colors, fonts, images, and any other element of the design to your heart's content.
- Once you are done, click the Download button on the top right side of the screen and select the format you prefer (JPG or PNG) and click the Start download button.
