2. In the video preview, play or scroll through your content to select a freeze frame. Once you've selected the desired frame, pause the video and click "Select Frame".
3. Your thumbnail will be automatically saved, the Editor will close, and a green confirmation message will appear on the Edit Video page.
Upload a Thumbnail
1. To the right of the video preview in the Thumbnail Editor, click Choose File to find a JPEG or PNG image to use as your thumbnail. The recommended image size is 960 x 540 pixels.
2. Once the image is uploaded, click Upload Thumbnail.
3. Your thumbnail will be automatically saved and a green confirmation message will appear on the Thumbnail Editor window with a preview of your new Thumbnail.

The DVD Thumbnail for Storefront creates a Netflix-like experience for your viewers. Learn more about it on this doc for the Storefront theme and then contact firstname.lastname@example.org to activate the feature in your account (at no additional charge).
1. Once enabled, go to the Edit Video page for the thumbnail you wish to update.
2. Click the ‘Thumbnail’ button to open the thumbnail editor.
