Screenshot or Custom Thumbnail

Screenshots of Pens are shown in mobile browsers, RSS feeds, to users who chose images instead of iframes, and in social media sharing.

This Pen is using the default Screenshot, generated by CodePen. Upgrade to PRO to upload your own thumbnail that will be displayed on previews of this pen throughout the site and when sharing to social media.
