14 Filters to beautify and enhance your thumbnails
You only get one shot at a first impression, so it pays to make it a good one. Thumbnails are the first thing people see when they visit a video website. In order to keep your audience those images need to pop with vitality and excitement. A great, not just good, first impression makes people hunger for more videos.
Today, we are thrilled to introduce some cool new features that make the Preview API even more vibrant and stimulating for your users.
14 filter choices let you create unique and dynamic visuals that will captivate your audience.

surrealistic filter. Isn't it much better?
The API offers the following filters:
We've added a number of options to help you customize the look of your thumbnails. Never before has it been this easy to add borders and drop shadows and to square your images.
Here are the new API options:
