    I only just started playing with WordPress yesterday and have it installed locally on my MacBook.

    I have install the widget and it works fine, image uploaded and showing in my sidebar (am using the Mantra theme) but I want to know if is is possible to have a different image showing on each page?
    ie
    Image 1 on Home page
    Image 2 on About page
    Image 3 on Video page
    etc.....

    If this is possible could someone please explain to me how this is done, preferably in simple terms :)

    Thanks in advance from a WordPress Newbie

    It's pretty straight forward. You'll need different sidebars on each page. Then you can add any widget you want including image widgets with different images.

    If Home, About, and Video are all different templates in the theme, then they probably already have different sidebars.

    If they are all the same template, then you might need to install another plugin that will let you add sidebars to pages and override the default sidebars.

    something like:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-page-sidebars/

    After trail and erroe it seems the simple page sidebar plugin works perfectly and is nice and easy to use.
