How to add a custom thumbnail

A simple way to make your Loom recording a little sleeker. 

Adding a custom thumbnail is a great way to showcase the topic of your video. It also allows you to add stunning visuals that represent you and your brand. 

Please note

Custom thumbnails are only available to users on our Business, Enterprise, and Education plans. 

How to add a custom thumbnail

  1. Navigate to the Settings tab from your video side panel and click Change thumbnail.
  2. You can drag and drop the image you want as a video cover from here.
  3. You can also drag and reposition your image to fit the video player best.


Please note: If you are looking to embed your video with your custom thumbnail, make sure you select Copy embed code (as seen below); do not copy thumbnail code. The thumbnail code will embed your video with a GIF thumbnail of the video rather than the image you uploaded as a thumbnail.
