Thumbnail submission and resizing to a small size

Good evening everyone!

I'm trying to submit a story that I have written and I have gotten to the point of uploading my thumbnail so people can get a good idea on what the story is before they even click on it.

The problem I am having is when I submit a thumbnail it resizes to such a small size that I cannot even read the text on the picture. When I look at other submissions in terms of story content, their thumbnails are much larger and easier to read.

I am just wondering if anyone knows what I might be doing wrong and how I could make my submitted thumbnail not so small!

Thank you all in advance!

Ah! Okay, so the really large thumbnail is that big because the submission file is an image. It's a bit of an exploit and I don't personally like it.
The square(r) ones are the size story thumbnails will be if you upload a thumbnail during the submission process. Unfortunately, for stories, the thumbnail size gets fixed at the time of upload, so if you set a thumbnail later, it'll default to the size and proportions of the tiny-ass default thumbnail that it was originally posted with. The only way to get a larger thumbnail at that point that I'm aware of is deleting the submission and resubmitting, uploading the thumbnail during the submission process.

Oh I see! Ok when I get home I'll give it a try. Also it doesn't matter if upload with a png as opposed to a jpg right?

That shouldn't make a difference, no. Pretty sure that I've been uploading my story thumbnails as .png files.
