Featured Image and Image Galleries

Use WordPress’s featured image box to upload/select the featured images of the post. The featured image will be used in the listing pages and carousels. It will also be included to the image gallery unless disabled from the portfolio options box. If you have selected  Image / Gallery portfolio format, you must use the Image Gallery box to select / upload the gallery images.
