If an image on your channel is blurry--whether a video thumbnail, property thumbnail or banner image--this likely means that the uploaded image does not match our recommendations:
- Property Vertical Thumbnails: 1280x720px
- Property Banner Images: 1920x1080px
- Video Thumbnails: 1280x720px
Here's how to update a blurry image or thumbnail:
Be sure you are signed in to your creator account. Navigate to the creator studio and click “content” from the menu cards or from the left-side navigation bar (the camera icon)
Here, you will see a list of all the properties you’ve created in your channel, and those properties’ associated videos. This is where you will be able to update any imagery associated with a property or particular video, and upload a higher resolution image.
To Edit a Property's Vertical Thumbnail or Banner Image:
Click on the property with the image in question. Next to the property name, click “Edit <Property Type>”--for example, if you were updating a Series property type, click “Edit Series” next to the name of that Series.
The Property Settings modal will appear.
From the Property Settings modal, update the associated Vertical Thumbnail and/or Banner image by clicking “Browse Files”. Double check that the photo size you are uploading matches our recs:
- Property Vertical Thumbnail: 1280x720px
- Property Banner Image: 1920x1080px
When you’re finished, click “Submit Changes”
To Edit a Video Thumbnail Image:
Click on the property containing the video with the image in question. From here, you will see a list of all the videos within that property. Click on the video requiring the image update, and the “Editing a Video” modal will appear.
