Inserting A Featured Image

The process of selecting an image that will appear at the top of an article or page.  In addition, this image will be the image thumbnail that shows up on the front page(s) of the website to the left of the article excerpt.

Photos that go into the Showcase or Slider are of the Front Page of the website and Front Page of the sport sections have to be at least 640 pixels wide by 360 pixels tall.  Anything bigger than that will be scaled down, while anything smaller will not result in undesired stretch of the source image.
