But sometimes a specific theme will throw you a very huge featured image as in the case below.

Now this does not look appealing at all and I actually had to zoom out to view the whole post. Now what can we do to make the featured image smaller? When you created your new blog post and you want to set your featured image, you can go to the bottom right hand corner in the edit screen where is says "Set Featured Image".

That IS helpful thanks. I wasn't even using the featured image feature - have always just grabbed an image and placed it in a post the regular way, and then to resize it you have to adjust the html code. Which I now how to do, but this is much simpler. Cool!
