Folks what is everyone using for creating their thumbnails on YT?

I have been using a free version of Canva but think it is time to level up? I'd like some cool features that the free version doesn't have but before I spend (MORE) money, I want to make sure I purchase the right thing!

All advice appreciated as always!
Thanks

I use GiMP to create all my TNs. I have used Resolve to make a couple of them, but GiMP is easier for me.

I use my videopad photo editor from a screenshot in the video. It automatically saves it to a PNG which is the easiest to upload as a clear thumbnail, and easy to put the big letters on it.

I use a mix of canva and photoshop 2020. I am still a student at my local community college so the monthly student pricing helps out.

Again no need for paying for anything here.
Gimp and Inkscape are great options.
Plenty of easy to follow tutorials of how to do thumbnails on these programs on - yep you guessed it - youtube.


Also most video editing programs will allow you to build what you want and then save it as a still frame. I know Resolve can.

I'm using Canva Paid version and have been for quite some time. I have a couple of websites as well so I use it for lots of stuff.

I also use Paint.net a fair amount as well. GIMP is a good program but I haven't used it in a while.
