Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Using featured images, part of WordPress Themes: Twenty Fourteen.
…Looking at my demo site here, it's pretty apparent that the…designer of Twenty Fourteen put a lot of emphasis on featured images.…They appear very large at the top of each post and they…take up a lot of space on the site as a whole.…And as you'll see later in the course, when you start using the featured…content area, featured images become crucial for…that content area to work and look nice.…Now,…because of the size of this featured image area, if you don't have that…extra right-hand sidebar, you have to make…sure you upload images that are big enough.…
This image is as big as it can be on the site, and…it looks decent, although it takes up quite a lot of vertical space.…But as you'll see, if I go to a post…that doesn't a featured image and then go and edit it,…and apply a featured image that is not as wide as…the area, the theme will handle that in a different way.…So I can now go back and view the post…and you'll see that the theme puts the featured image…in the middle and then it puts the raster effect…
