Description

In this class, I will walk you through the process of creating an engaging thumbnail for a YouTube video using only Inkscape. By the end of this class, you will have created a thumbnail for a YouTube video using Inkscape and will be encouraged to use what you learned to create a thumbnail of your own design.

I designed this course for people like me who don’t learn well when they are overloaded with information but find it easy to learn when they are doing and having fun.
