@Philreedshikes - since you have a YT channel (which I'll go and subscribe to momentarily), have you looked at using Adobe Spark? You can shoot with your phone and use it to create thumbnails. It's only $10 month, BUT it comes with Adobe Cloud storage, which will make sorting and cataloging your images in Lightroom MUCH easier.
I am just building my channel (so still getting a library of videos to upload) but the editing workflow I now use is this:
- Capture in either Camera+2 (stills) or Filmic Pro (video)
- Edit stills in Lightroom and video in Premiere Rush and save to Adobe Cloud
- Create thumbnails for video in Spark
- Upload to YT
