The video thumbnail plays an important role in influencing the user's decision to click on a video. It is a viewer's first impression of your video. That's why many bloggers or video creators spend a lot of time optimizing their thumbnails.

Sometimes, a beautiful and well-designed thumbnail lets users want to save it to use as wallpaper. If this is what you want, just follow this instruction to download your favorite Vimeo thumbnail. These methods also apply to downloading thumbnails from YouTube. 

Method 1. Download a Vimeo Video and Its Thumbnail on Windows and Mac
