What is a Minecraft thumbnail?
For starters, you’re likely wondering what on earth a Minecraft thumbnail is, right?
Before searching for a Minecraft thumbnail maker online, you need to understand what a thumbnail is and why its important to have one. Minecraft thumbnails are basically the same thing as an avatar. They are used to identify players and keep them from getting mixed up.
In short, online thumbnails are just mini pictures, they’re literally all over the internet. Sometimes thumbnails will be cropped to allow for clear viewing of the image. For example, if you are trying to use a page background for your thumbnail, you will most likely need to cut the original image down by taking a small portion of the background that you want to use.
Your thumbnail should be something that people will recognize easily. This is going to be how people will know your profile to see it among all the other players online. And believe me there are a lot of them out there.
Your thumbnail should be unique in design and have your username incorporated into it, so that people will know it’s you. Thumbnails are pretty much just a scaled down picture, So you can really just use whatever image you want. It’s a good idea to use something very colorful though, and make sure it’s unique to yourself.
Who uses Minecraft thumbnails?
Thumbnails are used by people who have Minecraft accounts that have been partnered with by YouTube. These people make money by playing Minecraft, posting videos of them gaming to their YouTube channels and having people subscribe to their channel.
The more subscribers a person has, the more money they earn. This is actually pretty cool because you can earn a pretty decent income while playing a game on your computer. Some of the best known people on YouTube who play Minecraft are actually making thousands, if not millions of dollars a year, just for filming themselves playing the game!
What makes a good Minecraft thumbnail?
Some people use a tiny version of their background for their thumbnail, while other people use a unique combination of 3D pictures of Minecraft characters, text and background decorations. There are a lot of different images that can be used for thumbnails, but most people chose something Minecraft related.
It can be a good idea to use a Minecraft world that you created as the background, your favorite character in the focus area of the thumbnail, and your username along one of the sides. Also, make sure that your username is in pretty large text, and that it really stands out, because it will be much easier to see it on a one inch avatar picture.
This will make it so you don’t really have to worry too much about having the exact same thumbnail as another player, because your Minecraft world and characters are usually different from other peoples and usernames are unique by definition.
