Twitch Thumbnails Not Loading Error – How to Fix?
While streaming on Twitch the thumbnail does not load at all, it shows a blank image. As a result, it might irritate you especially when you don’t find any solutions. Just follow the easy workaround provided below:
- The major problem lies within the maximum image resolution or dimension limitation that needs to be uploaded. Some Twitch users don’t know that the uploaded image should be 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. That’s the correct dimension of the thumbnail. Wider than that resolution may cause the same problem.
- The uploaded image file size can be another problem. Make sure it should be less than 10 MB of size. Additionally, you can take the help of Photoshop or any image optimization tools or services to resize and optimize the image with ease.
- While the web browser cache or cookies can also create problems. So, just wipe out the browser cache from the settings menu and it’ll be fixed.
- Alternatively, you can also use another web browser to upload thumbnails on Twitch and the issue may not appear again.
