I declare click bait! :D that is a 10 min vid! :D

Dude, I agonized over it - I didn't want to say it's a 10m vid on how to create thumbnails when clearly we're done with the tutorial portion after 5m, but it IS 10m long, and the 2nd half is so useful because of more stuff I wanted to explain, so I just went with it. :D

Plus, a little clickbait never hurt anyone ;)

Nice, how did you create the thumbnail for that video? :cool:

I'd love to show you - give me a day and I'll post a follow-up vid! :p


Actually, it's just 2 screenshots with some rectangle select / copy / paste going on, and then the techniques used in the tutorial.
