    Very good to a point , you lost me at theme , I could not find custom in themes, and in Canva it did not start with the size ie 1920×1080. Maybe yours was preset.

    You loved how easy your video looked – initially – I followed all your steps, YET ran into a few challenges::
    1 I did not know how you got a SCREENSHOT large enough to crop it in PicMonkey with dimensions 1920×1080? What did you use? My Mac screenshot was never large enough. Then I downloaded JING, could not figure out how to use it. Then I downloaded SNAGIT, could not figure out how to use it.
    2 Then I wanted to add a youtube icon at the end in CANVA – could not find any on my canvas – do you have a paid account with canva.com? For sb that is just starting out to learn about these things, there are always several steps LEFT OUT that one needs to know to be successful and that is truly frustrating.
    So for the newbies here, your beautiful presentation could be even more thorough and MUCH SLOWER, as I had to pause and reset button 100x. And thank you for your video!

    Thx for this! Looks like it’s a bit different looking when I use these programs on an IPad, so I definitely think I should work on a desktop from now on ☺️.

    Alright…so everyone is saying Picmonkey or Canva, but both those sights charge?! Even though it says Free trial?? Am I missing something?

    PicMonkey is simply the worst photo editor ever. It asks for a subscription to save the images created on PicMonkey, which is roughly $5.99 (INR 410) per month. Month-to-month fee is $7.99 (INR 547). Money-minded photo editor to save photos. Screw it. NOT AT ALL RECOMMENDED.

    But Canvas, on the other hand, is just free (an account registration is required) and I recommend this one. Some paid features such as Special backgrounds for $1 USD is present, and I’m not using that. Only resizing feature is a part of Premium feature is in Canva.

    This was very helpful! I just put together my first thumbnail using Canva…and I put together a matching photo for instagram. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Canva matches brand colors if you have the color number. So I can match on multiple platforms. Just thrilled! Thank you so much!

    your videos are so shitty, your audio sucks and your camera is way overexposed, your thumbnails look like crap! Dont pretend like your so good when in actuality you an amateur that cant even do basic video principles.

    Love this tutorial, but Canva and PicMonkey don’t let me try it for free anymore. Canva says there’s a trial, but they want a credit card. Do you know of any newer sites I can try since you made this one in 2015? Your tutorials (and Sean’s) have me fired up and I want to get started. Thanks
