Is there a way to choose which picture in a post is used as the main picture (such as those on the main home page)? Like, as far as I know, when you post several pictures in a post, the first one is used as the main one. But I've noticed some posts where it's not the first picture that is used as the main one. It obviously not a big issue/question, but just something I was wondering about!!

I think it's always the first picture in a post.  Could you give me some links to a few threads where this isn't the case?

Well, in my search for links, I think I discovered the common denominator!! lol
Here's two links, but what I discovered is that they're both in the featured projects section, so maybe it has to do with that?

Just something I had been wondering about. Like I said, I've seen it around, so I started wondering. But I don't know if it was only after they were in the featured section that the picture wasn't necessarily the first one on the page.

Oooh... yes!  We save one of the photos from the featured projects thread to our database, so they are actually hand-picked.

For the Hot New Projects, Newest Projects and Current Craftster Challenge thumbnails, they are automatically generated from the first photo in the thread.
