I have created a video tutorial below. Kindly watch the video below;

            According to my research I have found many methods to do this but at least all of the given methods are totally dummy method and suppose not to work. But there are some html/java codes available which easily compete this task and change the thumbnail of any post to a custom image. To do this you need to follow the simple to steps.
Note: If your Blogger isn't show posts in thumbnail then you need to follow step 1 and if blogger already enabled to show thumbnails then directly go to Step 2 

 Step 1:  
  Show Snippet or Thumbnail in Blogger's Body:    

If you are happy to change your blogger theme code then show you show the snippet and thumbnail anywhere inside the blog post area.

If you want to show snippet then use this code


And for thumbnail add use this code;

                             <img expr:src='data:post.thumbnailUrl'/>           

Another suggested method is that mostly people says to add following code to blogger HTML

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;index&quot;'>
      <b:if cond='data:post.snippet'>
      <b:if cond='data:post.thumbnailUrl'>
          <div class='Image thumb'>
            <img expr:src='data:post.thumbnailUrl'/>

These are above mentioned method are for only to show “thumbnail or snippet” to your blogger or WordPress body. Here one question arises that

 “Can we tell blogger what's in data:post.thumbnailUrl?”  

If your blogger or WordPress theme already enabled to show thumbnails for posts then Skip Step 1 and Go to Step 2 below;
