1) I upload images for a post and create a gallery.
2) I re-crop one image thumbnail using WP's internal "edit image" capabilities
3) I then choose that image to be the "featured image"
BUT! The re-cropped thumbnail does not appear on the site as the featured image. The thumbnail that WordPress automatically creates during the upload process appears instead. The re-cropped image DOES appear in the gallery, though.
I want to be able to crop the featured thumbnail image using WordPress's image editing tools. Is this possible? I have tried it in many different ways and many different orders but so far it does not work.
thank you for you time
