Did you ever wonder how you can find and save the images that appear when sharing links to YouTube videos?

There's a variety of reasons why you may want the image that comes up, such as using it as a feature photo in wordpress, or setting it as a thumbnail image when sharing a link to an article of yours on social media.

This site here, https://boingboing.net/features/getthumbs, allows you to paste in the URL of the YouTube video, and then it displays the various images that have been set for the video which you can save and use in that way.

I find it really handy sometimes!
