Controlling Thumbnail Image for Youtube videos

Youtube seems to extract about 6 different frames in the video to use as a thumbnail display. How can I control that so the thumbnail displays what I want.

I noticed that others seem to have a photo image for their thumbnail which indicates that there is a frame or frames within the video that shows that photo.

I would like to have a thumbnail displaying showing my main image which appears in the first 3 seconds of the video then it's just text and narration after that. Unfortunelty, Youtube doesn't capture those first 3 seconds and displays a boring text thumbnail.

thanks
John
