How to download YouTube Video Thumbnail Image

You might be thinking about what exactly a thumbnail image is. A YouTube thumbnail is nothing but the cover image that is visible on every YouTube video. It is a very powerful marketing tool because the thumbnail image would display what you are going to talk about or show to the viewers in the entire YouTube video. Just by seeing the thumbnail image, viewers judge plenty of YouTube videos and decide whether they wish to see that video or not.

With the use of an excellent thumbnail image, the audience would be attracted to viewing the entire video, and this would enhance the number of views and traffic on that particular YouTube video. Sometimes, you might like the thumbnail of videos of others, and you would like to download the YouTube thumbnail of their video. 

Now, you might be thinking about how you can download a YouTube thumbnail from someone else’s video. The process becomes pretty simple with the use of the Addoncrop YouTube Downloader.

How does it work?

Once you download and install the Addoncrop YouTube Downloader extension, the entire process is pretty easy and simple for you.

Open the YouTube video from which you wish to download the thumbnail. Click on the thumbnail icon that is provided under the YouTube video.

You would be given different thumbnail resolutions and sizes. Select the desired resolution and size of the thumbnail and click on the “Download” button. The thumbnail would be downloaded to your device in the selected size and resolution. You can, later on, use it to upload the image on your YouTube video as a thumbnail.

YouTube offers four different thumbnail qualities for every video:

  • Full (HD) Quality – 1920 x 1080
  • Basic (SD) Quality – 640 x 480
  • High (HQ) Quality – 480 x 360
