The perfect thumbnail can make or break your video’s viewability. It’s the first thing people see when interacting with a video, and if yours isn’t eye-catching, then people won’t click on it.

Joomag now allows publishers to customize the preview thumbnails of their videos. See how it’s done in the video below.

When it comes to digital publishing, the little things really do matter. And with our latest platform update, your publishing experience just got a little easier in big ways.
Our spell check feature (introduced with our previous update) can now be turned off or on whenever you’re editing a publication.

Another great feature we’ve implemented this month is the “General Privacy” setting. It allows users to set specific privacy options for the entire magazine rather than configuring each issue individually. Once set, the “General Privacy” setting will be applied automatically on all newly created issues.
