About YT Thumbnail Downloader

YT (You Thumbnail) YouTube thumbnail downloader allows you to download YouTube thumbnails quickly and easily. It is an online tool, no need to install any apps, completely free for anyone.

What is YouTube thumbnail?
The YouTube thumbnail is the cover image of the video that provides a preview of the video. There are two types of YouTube thumbnails: automatically generated by YouTube and uploaded by the creator. Thumbnails uploaded by creators are also called custom thumbnails. Regardless of the type of thumbnail, its URL is hidden, you can't find the thumbnail link on YouTube, and you can't save it.

How many thumbnails does a YouTube video have?
A YouTube video can have up to nine thumbnails, but not every video has nine thumbnails. There are seven thumbnails guaranteed to exist:

Player Background 480x360
Start 120x90
Middle 120x90
End 120x90
High-Quality 480x360
Medium Quality 320x180
Normal Quality 120x90
Besides, if the video is high-definition, there will be two other sizes of the thumbnail.

Standard Definition 640x480
Maximum Resolution 1920x1080
But the most commonly used sizes are High-Quality, Medium Quality, and full size. Therefore, the YT Youtube thumbnail downloader only provides downloads in these three sizes. If you need other sizes, I'll tell you how to get it later.

Why download thumbnails?

That has resulted in most of the video covers on YouTube being beautiful, either funny or creative. It makes many people want to download and save. In general, based on the following purposes:

Download video thumbnails as a source of inspiration for video cover.

Why need a thumbnail downloader?

Where to get the YouTube video links?

How to get all size of YouTube thumbnails?
As we said before, a video can have up to 9 thumbnails of different sizes, and now I will tell you how to get all the thumbnails. Before start, you need to understand what's a video ID.

The YouTube video ID is a unique ID used to identify the video uploaded to YouTube. Youtube video ID is used to create a unique URL for displaying videos and can be used to embed Youtube videos on any website.

The video id is usually at the end of the video URL, such as the following two video links:

The character dy6Hj0Kk-CA is the video ID. Below is a list of all nine thumbnail image links of a video, replace the video id with your own to get the video thumbnails.

You will find it's not so easy to obtain video thumbnails in this way, if you don't need the extra thumbnail size, please use our thumbnail downloader to download directly.

Can I use the downloaded thumbnails on YouTube?
The copyright of the thumbnail belongs to the creator or designer. Without the permission of the copyright owner, they can report and sue you for using the content in the thumbnail. Therefore, I don't recommend copying the video thumbnails of others. But it can be used as a design inspiration to create your thumbnails.
