Adding Custom Thumbnails

Make your content stand out in search results by adding a custom thumbnail using a high-resolution photo or a well-timed screenshot from the video!

Simply access your Video Manager, select a video and go to the Thumbnail tab. If you're not seeing the option below, contact your account representative to have it enabled on your account.


Video Thumbnail Rules That NOT Permitted 

  • Any text, Logos or superimposed images cannot be larger than 1/3 of the thumbnail.
  • Do not add text that is unrelated to the video. Text must describe the actions, persons or themes displayed in the video.
  • Actions portrayed in the thumbnail MUST appear in the video. Ex. If it shows a blowjob, there should be a blowjob scene in the video.
  • Fake or deceptive elements like brand colors on text, play buttons, arrows or words such as "top video", "recommended" or "most viewed" 
  • As of May 2022 we no longer allow borders on thumbnails 

Specialty Thumbnail Rules That ARE Permitted:

  • Promo Shots; An image that doesn’t necessarily happen in the video, but was taken to promote the video. Think, girl’s surprised face at huge penis or a large guy standing next to tiny girl to demonstrate contrast.
  • Compositions; a collage of multiple parts of the video. Same rules from above will apply.

Deceptive or inaccurate use of custom thumbs may result in the option being removed from your account.
