    YT Partner accounts can do this, normal accounts are limited to 3 thumbnails (one from the beginning, middle and end).

    You have to provide quality, original, content and get decent views. You'll first be invited into the monetization program where you can use Adsense.

    Seems like hard work, maby better to do some videos with only that image to get them click the video.

    Video = One picture that last in whole video, and talk in microphone.

    Yea it's hard to be come a partner.

    I think thumbnails are more than enough. If you go to edit the video you will get a choice of 3 pictures to choose from.

    in your video editing program...put the image on the timeline below your video footage..then extend the image throughout the entire video (you will not be able to see it in your video because it will be below your video) that is it.
    YT picks certain sections of your vid to use for thumbnials, so if you have this image spread throughout the entire vid, you will have an option choose it as a thumbnail
