it is about time you got your editor to fix the preload image..
It's kinda random.
No, it is not. It never has been. It is only random when you have an editor that cannot read. Which is obviously an issue in and of itself.
There is a big old button there to put one of your choice on there.
That's not the editor that picks that, that's the poster. And that is manually chosen every time, but only from the three choices, need to have someone make a title pic otherwise. Maybe just need to do that.
You are correct that I simply assumed the editor would post it to your channel for you. Seems silly to have to send it back and forth.
