Plugin or Theming Question: Images attached to category view (4 posts)

    I'm not sure what the solution is to what I'm going for. Might be a combination of some plugin and changing some code.

    http://estevancarlos.com/home/projects

    That page shows a category of entries labeled "Projects" with a blurb of text. I want this list of entries to display full size images for each.

    For most of these entries I've uploaded images and just want some of the images a part of the text blurb or instead of it.

    Am I making sense? Thanks for your help.

    There probably is a plugin for this, but the manual method that I'd use for doing this would probably to use a custom field for the image url (?) and then place a call to this function in a custom template called 'category-X.php' (or something like that - I'm afraid I can't remember the exact nomenclature - where X is the id for the category)

    I'm sure there are better ways of doing this, but just an idea :)

    p/s: This should (in general) work with most versions of WP I believe.
    p/s2: This plugin Linked Image looked quite promising, but it's for WP2.3+.

    What should I look up to find the information? Should I look into custom fields? I haven't messed with them yet. If I'm seeking a plugin, should I look under image related plugins or posts?

    Although I usually find the WP documentation a bit hard to follow, this actually seems more straight-forward than what I had suggested.

    For the plugins, I searched for 'post image' but maybe there are better keywords ;)
