Hello Fellow Members of PMC! :)
Today, I am bringing you a tutorial on how to create your own custom thumbnails. This tutorial has been done many times, but this is explaining how I create MY thumbnails. This tutorial and process only consists of 5 simple steps. It is quite easy, and only takes a few minutes.

1. Open up a new document, and make it the size of the screen. When you start out a document it mainly starts out that size. So just zoom out so its a rectangle in the middle of your screen. This is your base.

2. Open up the internet, and go to textcraft.net. With this website, you can create your own minecraft themed heading and subheading. This doesn't have to be minecraft related, you can still make custom text with this editor.

3. Copy that heading, and paste it into your document. Make sure to centre it, as it will look more fancy. If you prefer, you can put it up the top or where-ever.

4. Type in with a text box of sorts, a sub-sub heading, whether it be "A Rant by " or "A Tutorial by ". Something along those lines. Also if you want to, add a colour to the background with the bucket tool. I choose to make it a darker/lighter variation of the main headings colour.

5. Now, go onto the internet and find images that are related to the topic you are talking about. Such as a rant, you may consider putting in the "are you kidding me?" face, or perhaps the derp face. Also if you are talking about mob interviews, perhaps add pictures of mobs. If you are talking about weapons, or potions, or whatever, add photos of them.
Considering this is a thumbnail tutorial, The picture itself is pretty much set. It doesn't need another thumbnail on it, because it already is a thumbail.
Also if you want to add an avatar of yourself on to it, go to novaskin, insert your username and make yourself into a custom position. Then save the image as and paste it into the document!

I haven't seen any (or atleast any GOOD) thumbnail tutorials actually. The most I've seen are people saying they'll make the thumbnails for you, which isn't the same.
