Adding Featured Images

WordPress featured images are used to display a hero image above your content in your single posts, and a thumbnail/smaller image within your blog post excerpts on your blog page/archives.

The featured image metabox is a core WordPress metabox, and can be found at the bottom right (in most cases) of your edit page/post area.
