How to make a custom Gim for your thumbnails

The title explains


First, go to:

Second, go to Google and look up “Default Gimkit Skin”, and and press blank ones until you find one with a checkered background(like so)

On photopea, go to upload from computer

And choose the file

It should look like this:

Then go to “File”, in the top-left corner

Then go to the second option, “Open and place”

Click the same file as before.

That’s the prep!

Actual making

Now go to the “Background” section

In the bottom-left corner, go to the two white squares.

Change them to whatever colors you want

Select the tool between the eraser and water drop

Draw a line to your liking, you will see the result

Now go to the other section

Use the wand tool
Click anywhere outside the Gim
Now go back to the gradient tool.
Click outside the Gim.
Save it.

This took like 2 hours(with a 20-min break in between)

A couple of things.

  1. Get rid of the length-warning, we do not use it, and it is not long.

  2. Get rid of the art

  3. Put it in Art instead of Community Made Guides

  4. Don’t put ? in your title unless it is a help topic.

Not trying to be mean, you are a newer user, and you should learn from your mistakes! :+1:

How to make custom gims for your thumbnail! (4/10 or :yellow_square:)
This guide already exists.
Next time, search for the guide before you post it so you don’t make a duplicate again.

Ik it exsists, this is another method.
Also, I was going to publish it first, but my forums glitched and the draft deleted.


Why did u bump this BMW23 its only been an hour???

An hour since what???

The post before

It had been 2 hours

And I just added the poll

Thats not long u bump stuff when its been like a week + since last post

But I just added the poll.

If people really want it they will look for it if u wanna bring a guide back thats when u bump and can we please end this.

Really? Because it was made far before you even joined the forums.

Don’t try to lie.
